A photographer got a fright when he captured a shadowy figure lurking behind a pillar underneath a bridge in this very creepy shot.
Los Angeles-based snapper Seth Peebler was taking photos of the city’s 4th Street Bridge with a friend, totally unaware they were being watched.
A closer look at the photo shows a man wearing green sunglasses staring back at them from up high.
“I had no idea my friend and I were being watched for the 20 minutes we were under the bridge,” he explained.
Some doubters suggested the image was a fake, however the photographer later increased the exposure on the photo and shared it online.
“I just increased the exposure and shadows sliders in Lightroom. If you look at the circled part the file ends in ".ARW", which is Sony's RAW format,” he explained. “Scared the s--t out of us because he didn't make a sound until he started talking.”
He believes the man was homeless, adding: “He actually approached my friend later and offered to let us up to where he was for $10 each.”
