When you look closely, you will see that the shadows are coming from two different light sources. So you are "seeing things in a different light." Perhaps that pushed the envelop, but having a difficult one once in a while should help to keep you sharp.
Sometimes the easiest pictures to draw convey the best messages. "You" in this picture are missing the stick representing your back and "I" have it. I have your back.
Since I was on vacation, and didn't have an easy way to upload a new puzzle, I ran this one for two weeks. Thinking that some people may wonder why the puzzle wasn't changed, I wanted to let everyone know the I would return with a new one. So I made a puzzle out of the famous movie phrase: "I'll be back."
The hint last week was that the answer might be good advice for when you are traveling this summer. The picture is of the Parthenon in Rome, "Quando" means "When" and "fai" is "do" in Italian. Putting that altogether, the sage advice is "When in Rome, do as the Romans do."

The famous literary quote is from "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens. In fact, that whole first paragraph has some good "What in the World" puzzles hiding in it.
The animation shows "the word" going from compact normal print to a spread out style.
So, the correct answer to the puzzle is also my wish. I hope that you spread the word to all your friends about this website and weekly puzzle. We've been stuck at 16 likes for quite some time now. I'm hoping we can build that up.
