This assumes the shark free shots weren’t shopped by sharks. If I were a man eating shark intent on sneaking up on folks in an urban enviroment, all I’d have to do was take a picture of an area with me in it, then without me, and then you’d all be convinced I wasn’t outside your door about to deliver a candygram. It’s almost too easy.
