What could these spherical objects possibly be?
Possibilities include dust, insects, camera lens flash reflection or ... something else...
All of these photos were taken with the same camera, lens and flash, yet the orb details are dissimilar.
On this page
we have a collection of photographs taken in Saratoga, NY.
When the photos were developed, round orbs were visible.

Notice the difference between the orb at the top of the photo, and the bright spots of light in the middle of the photo.
