But the story goes that when I was a student at Saint Paul University and when students were still able to stay in the library all night, I could swear that I saw silhouettes of figures walking back and forth in front of me. So one night I decided to take a camera to the library late at night to confirm my suspicions, and took a few pictures. When I uploaded the first picture (see "Faces" pictures-feel free to zoom in on the original), I saw an anomaly and highlighted that section.
