Fighting ninjas and abstract leaves

I took a TON of photos a few weeks ago in Seattle's funky Georgetown neighborhood.  Love these windows in an old industrial building that looked like it had been turned into artist lofts. 


It reminded me of that old Sesame Street song, "One of these things is not like the others, one of these things doesn't belong..."  I can't imagine what twirling ninjas have to do with abstract leaves, but there you have it...


Don't you love the way I artfully insert my shadow into the picture?

And the way I masterfully captured the glare of the sun?

I think you missed it - all the window panels have Ninjas in them.

Wait a second...ALL the window panels have ninjas? I looked and looked and didn't see any others. Are they hiding in plain sight? What am I missing???!!!!

I was probably being too obscure. The mythology and legend of the Ninja is that they could move invisibly. The very name 'shinobi' means to steal away - invisibility. I was implying that the Ninjas were there but they were invisible in the other panels, it is only when engaged in combat that the Ninja was visible and afterward would slip behind the yellow leaves unseen.

Medici, that's what I thought you meant...but then I thought perhaps there were actual ninja images in the other panes of glass (It's an old lady! It's a young lady with a hat! It's an old lady!)
