A member of the family who took the photos posted them online asking for help explaining this bizarre image.
‘What interested me is neither of these family members have heard of photo shop; much less used it. This was taken in the front yard of a house they had recently purchased and hadn't even completely moved into,’ they write in the caption of the photo on Imgur.
They also point out the appearance of a shadow - which they say rules out a smudge on the lens because ‘smudges don't produce shadows’.
It’s certainly an eerie set of pictures!
