Looks like he's holding a folding camera... and wearing brazing goggles?
Maybe he was the local Emmett L. Brown type.

It would be nice to know what collection this picture is from, Subby.

When you travel through time you lose connection to your soul, so you can't actually be photographed any more. Like a vampire, sorta. There are actually thousands of people who have traveled back in time but there will never be a photograph of them.

However, the old man and lady next to the time traveler have the same or similar lighting on them as our ersatz epoch sojourner, indicating that something out of frame is casting a shadow on some of the crowd.

If you were to remove the sunglasses and add a big mop of long curly hair to the time traveler, you would see that it is none other than a young Brian May, guitarist from Queen and Doctor of Astrophysics.

Dude built his own guitars from scratch. Is there any doubt he built a time machine as well, probably out of bits of an old fireplace, a motorcycle saddlebag, some pearl buttons and a knitting needle?

I was the last one left after the nuclear holocaust, eh. The whole world had been destroyed, like U.S. blew up Russia and Russia blew up U.S. Fortunately, I had been offworld at the time. There wasn't much to do. All the bowling alleys had been wrecked. So's I spent most of my time looking for beer.

Why would someone go back in time to witness the re-opening of the South Fork Bridge (following the Nov. 1940 flood) in Gold Bridge, B.C., when they could have gone to Pearl Harbor or Berlin or somewhere?

OK so, here's what we know: buddy has gone back in time to 1941, to a little mining town in rural British Columbia. He has Kramer hair, a folding camera, cool shades, and he's wearing some kind of team jersey with the letter "M."

I think right after the photo was taken, the good (and behatted) people of the town stuck a white feather on his lapel and rode him out of town as some kind of enemy alien.

Umm...hello? They do. Coordinates are specific and exact. To do otherwise would be folly, as evidenced by the doomed mission of Dr. Randolph Milison in 2210, when he failed to take into account the volcanic activity on the islands of Hawaii and found himself materializing half in and half out of a then-recently cooled heap of slag. If he had, as advised (and now mandated,) used a hovercraft to phase in a few meters above ground, then the only danger would have been popping in directly into a bird in flight, an anomaly with a minuscule chance of happening (although as you know, it has occurred,) and which in most cases is rarely fatal, except of course for the bird.

Only if you think in 2D. Everyone seems to be looking at the same point. The two 'reference heads' are deeper into the shot have their heads tilted slightly more into the sun.

In the year of '39
A simple year, the volunteers
In the days when the lands were few
Here the ships sailed out,
'nto the blue and sunny morn'
Sweetest sight ever seen.

And the night followed day
And the storytellers say
That the score brave souls inside
Though many a'lonely day
Sailed across the milky seas
Ne'er looked back, never feared
Never cried.

(Chorus 1)
Don't you hear my call
Though you're many years away
Don't you hear me callin' you

Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew

(Verse 2)
In the year of '39
Came a ship in from the blue
The volunteers came home that day

And they bring good news
Of a world so newly born
Though their hearts so heavily weigh

For the earth is old and grey
Little darlin', we'll away
But my love, this cannot be

Oh so many years are gone
Though I'm older but a year
Your mother's eyes, from your eyes,
Cry to me.

(Sing Chorus 1)

Don't you hear my call
Though you're many years away
Don't you hear me callin' you

All your letters in the sand
Cannot heal me like your hand

For my life
Still ahead
Pity me.

Well I think if you break down the spectrum ray analysis you'll find the exposure is about 1.2 in the negative array of the alpha channel.

AdolfOliverPanties: However, the old man and lady next to the time traveler have the same or similar lighting on them as our ersatz epoch sojourner, indicating that something out of frame is casting a shadow on some of the crowd.

If you were to remove the sunglasses and add a big mop of long curly hair to the time traveler, you would see that it is none other than a young Brian May, guitarist from Queen and Doctor of Astrophysics.

Dude built his own guitars from scratch. Is there any doubt he built a time machine as well, probably out of bits of an old fireplace, a motorcycle saddlebag, some pearl buttons and a knitting needle?

He IS dressed for the period, albeit in a more informal style than was common at the time: cheap celluloid sun goggles, a school jersey of some kind, and a patently homemade-looking cardigan sweater.

His haircut is absolutely typical of the period. Everything else is plausible.

The coat looks very old (like a leather bomber-type jacket with rough wool inside). The shirt underneath could be anything.

Sunglasses existed back then too, and they were really crappy and bulky at the time. He's not clean-shaven and has bad hat hair, so he sticks out when next to all those other stiffs. Hey, there were slobs in the 1940's too.

The fact that his shirt was probably knit proves that he is a time traveler. He wouldn't have been able to get a knit shirt like that except from the past around the time the photo was taken. So he had to go back in time to procure the shirt.

There was a Twilight Zone episode where an entrepreneur went back in time (makes a deal with the devil plot) to 1910 in order to get in on the big discoveries before they were invented. He goes to a machine shop to get them to build automobile starters at a time when cars were started by hand crank. The machine shop wants detailed drafted plans for this wonder invention,not a description. He has no idea and never even thought of it. So he's basically out of luck because he's a nobody without any ability to implement the future technology he was familiar with. Typical TZ bad ending.

And then he traveled back in time to 1924 and gave a pair of glacier glasses to Mallory and Irvine to climb Mt. Everest with. But since it was such a radical idea he had to kill them and they were never seen again. Except that they did find the one body but I don't think they found the glacier glasses.

Not that it wouldn't be awesome, but, I've recently come to terms that, maybe, time traveling to the past would not be healthy.

Think about it, you're essentially sending a piece of yet-to-be-conceived matter into the past. Wouldn't this be extremely hazardous to the universe itself, and cause all sorts of ripples?.

Yes, but, essentially the Universe really doesn't like a vacuum. So, yeah, you made it through time, but now instead of a chrono-naut, you're just a german farmer of 1927, who had this weird dream and probably was the result of that time you drank all that cheap booze with your brother.

Bingo. Real time travelers know you can only go to the future. Past time travelers are totally fake. The ONLY plausible explanation is that this guy is from 1941, came to the future and then went back to 1941 in his new fashioned clothes. HE submitted this link while he was here.

If it worked like that you would be random molecules scattered around a very large area in the form of all the precursors to the food your parents would eventually consume to create you. So no, its not like that. And the universe is OK with the vacuum, just not so early in the morning man, its trying to sleep fer chrisakes.

I don't get it, what is out of place in the photo? Everyone seems focused on someone whose shadows look odd... where did the "time traveler" notion come from? He looks normal otherwise.

And remember, the planet is not in the same place as it was in x number of years ago. Anyone simply traveling back in time would mostly likely end up in a pretty hard vacuum, unconscious and dying within seconds. Hell, the planet isn't in the same spot now as it was 10 seconds ago... How fast does Earth travel through actual space? Any jump merely through time is likely to have catastrophic results for the traveler...

EXACTLY. Or at least no ghosts in the commonly thought-of sense of them being "time echoes," or spirits of deceased persons that can pass through solid matter, float unaffected by gravity, etc. You can't just pick and choose which laws of physics a spirit is beholden to for the sake of it feeling good or it being good drama.

That and the fact that ghosts are drawn to the nearest mass of dark matter for it's inherent creepiness then they fly around in it going "Wooooo" and generally behaving spooky. In fact, dark matter is made of ghosts.

And anyway, people and objects don't travel through time, only moments do. And the dimension of time itself doesn't move, it's just a "stationary" axis of reference. Moments and series of moments move along it. And it intersects with space at one point on its axis, and that is the present.

Although I don't believe in ghosts or spirits in any traditional sense, I do not discount the possibility that there could be non-corporeal sentient and/or semi-sentient entities that possess cohesion and form according to certain undiscovered principles of nature, but that are also somewhat beholden to physical laws (although from our perspective, less beholden to them than might seem conceivable or logical given our limited knowledge of the nature of the universe) and can interact with and be affected by certain physical objects and energies. Hell there could be non-sentient analogues for bacteria and viruses (or plants? fungi? slime molds? portuguese man o' war?) that exist entirely in "that realm." And by analogues I don't mean mirror images, I mean relative equivalents.

Fano: Watson 749: Dire: I don't get it, what is out of place in the photo? Everyone seems focused on someone whose shadows look odd... where did the "time traveler" notion come from? He looks normal otherwise.

And remember, the planet is not in the same place as it was in x number of years ago. Anyone simply traveling back in time would mostly likely end up in a pretty hard vacuum, unconscious and dying within seconds. Hell, the planet isn't in the same spot now as it was 10 seconds ago... How fast does Earth travel through actual space? Any jump merely through time is likely to have catastrophic results for the traveler...

This is the same reason why there are no ghosts.

They're all space ghosts.

Am I missing any?

Primer is pretty damned good for a $7000 movie about time travel.


Actually, it's pretty crap for $7000. No amount of money would save a crap movie based on a crappy script. Ask James Cameron.



I thought, for novice filmmakers, they had some decent ideas even if it wasn't 100% great.

I will accept a somewhat crappy movie made for $7000.
I will not accept a completely crappy movie made for $500 million, which is why James Cameron must be tarred, feathered and beaten to a pulp in the public square, then be forced to write a check to each person who paid hard-earned money to see Avatard:

dahmers love zombie: Don't you hear my call
Though I'm many years away
Don't you hear me calling you...

Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knewAdolfOliverPanties: However, the old man and lady next to the time traveler have the same or similar lighting on them as our ersatz epoch sojourner, indicating that something out of frame is casting a shadow on some of the crowd.

If you were to remove the sunglasses and add a big mop of long curly hair to the time traveler, you would see that it is none other than a young Brian May, guitarist from Queen and Doctor of Astrophysics.

Dude built his own guitars from scratch. Is there any doubt he built a time machine as well, probably out of bits of an old fireplace, a motorcycle saddlebag, some pearl buttons and a knitting needle?

In the year of '39
A simple year, the volunteers
In the days when the lands were few
Here the ships sailed out,
'nto the blue and sunny morn'
Sweetest sight ever seen.

And the night followed day
And the storytellers say
That the score brave souls inside
Though many a'lonely day
Sailed across the milky seas
Ne'er looked back, never feared
Never cried.

(Chorus 1)
Don't you hear my call
Though you're many years away
Don't you hear me callin' you

Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew

(Verse 2)
In the year of '39
Came a ship in from the blue
The volunteers came home that day

And they bring good news
Of a world so newly born
Though their hearts so heavily weigh

For the earth is old and grey
Little darlin', we'll away
But my love, this cannot be

Oh so many years are gone
Though I'm older but a year
Your mother's eyes, from your eyes,
Cry to me.

(Sing Chorus 1)

Don't you hear my call
Though you're many years away
Don't you hear me callin' you

All your letters in the sand
Cannot heal me like your hand

For my life
Still ahead
Pity me.


Good call on that one!

It took me a long time to realize what he was talking about in this damn song. ;)

QED.

I'm a photographic expert.

I read through your brief analysis.

Not only are you correct, I may have to nominate you for the Nobel.


Is it not possible this is not only, not photoshopped, but this is just a guy who dressed like a hipster in 1941. After all, a time traveller would have a modern camera, not that old-timey crap.

Also, the dude has ears that stick WAY out from the sides of his head. That's where his ear shadow comes from. Geez... simplest solution, occam's razor and all that.

ichiban: When you travel through time you lose connection to your soul, so you can't actually be photographed any more. Like a vampire, sorta. There are actually thousands of people who have traveled back in time but there will never be a photograph of them.


I'm traveling through time, right now.
Guess what? So are you.

It's at some point after you stop traveling through time that you can't be photographed.

Rusty Shackleford: I think the teenage version of his mom is onto his whacky scheme.


The real time traveler is the guy to his right, in the hat.
See how he's looking at us? He knows.

Why? You would will have going to be still a second late.

Obviously this is the 'AFTER altering timeline' photograph.

What we can't know is what he did to allow us to live in the world we do now.

Sheesh! What was going to happen that THIS is preferable???

I think it's pretty clear that he's from the official Bridge Department documenting how and when each bridge was opened in history following the Great Bridge War of 2013, in which all the bridges ever created were destroyed and the technology to create more bridges was forever lost to mankind.
