Very clever shot!!!
+1 - Definitely!
Very good, if it wasn't for that bar code......
Vincenzo, not a fan of bar codes? Call me crazy but I think the two bar codes enhance the theme rather than detract from it.
Maybe it is just me, but I don't see the joke/clever shot here. Someone mind explaining the elephant in the room?
Not saying I don't like the shot, but what is the timetravel part?
Not for everyone's taste I suppose.
Well, when I first saw the pic it looked like a great recreation of a 19th century bar, but as I scrolled down to reveal more the phone came into view, aahha, the Time Travel bit, very clever. But then the bar code caught my attention and the spell was broken. You were probably thinking along different lines to me though. I still like the image.
Relax, have a drink.
I would, except that I don't drink from bottles with barcodes...
Soon we will be distinguished by the barcodes on our foreheads, don't resist, and try to act suprised
Seriously though good photograph.
And our camera's sensor will be placed over the eye like a contact lens. Can't wait.
Sooo.. What's the idea behind this shot?
for mine, for sure
The idea is time travel (for the novice).
You realize that doesn't tell us anything, right? Why is it time travel for the novice?
Can I give my interpretation?
Black and White suggests time travel, back time travel precisely, by the way;
the 50 cents on the table make me think that someone is not that wealthy, maybe actually poor and cannot afford a "time travel"… so the scotch bottle is the real time travel machine for those who want to see and know many but don't know how (novice).
Alcohol is a way to time travel just standing in the same place.
And here's the problem.
Can you imagine walking into a Western bar in 1860, throwing a few coins on the counter for a bottle of whiskey (they always do that) and the barman scans the bottle before giving it to you. Confused from across the Pond.
No, your interpretation doesn't sound correct to me at least.
The author doesn't want to represent a past picture. It is demonstrated not by the bar code, but by the dark object on the lower left corner. Do you know what it is? A smartphone. And it represents the same picture pictured….
