Two photographers captured photographs so much like one another that a stranger thought one of them was stolen.

Ron Risman, writing for the photography news site PetaPixel, said he went to Great Island Commons in New Castle, New Hampshire, to capture waves crashing against the Whaleback Lighthouse (pictured above). Risman, shooting with a tripod and long 150-600mm lens next to a tree, never noticed another photographer nearby. And Eric Gendron, a photographer just under a hundred feet away, also shooting the lighthouse, apparently never noticed Risman.

But even if they had spotted each other, they likely wouldn’t have expected to have made the same shots.
