February Photo Challenge - Comments & Notable Rejects

This is the thread for any comments that you would like to make about any of the submissions in this month's Photo Challenge.

Additionally, if you have any shots that you have taken on the subject, but didn't quite "make the cut", you can share them on this thread too.

This month's theme is "A sign of the Times"

Iím a little confused with the title. Is it literally for written signs or a reaction (signs) of the times, like for instance someone cooking while texting on their mobile phone?
Trying to stay on topic, thanks

yep. what lewis said.
Not literally intended (only) for physical signs, but always knew these would play a part in the interpretations. especially funny ones like RB posted.
But the photo I am working on does not have a sign in it.
And I like your interpretation Suzy.

can you be clearer please, remembering some like me have certain "mental" health issues and this can be over complicated to understand, tanks

Perhaps a clue as to what it means, for me

sign of the times.

SOME DEFINITIONS

something that is typical of the nature or quality of today, typically something undesirable.

something that shows the way the world is changing.

Something that shows what life is like now.

something that shows the kinds of things that are happening, popular, important, etc., in our culture now, that wouldn't have been happening in the past.

Something regarded, usually negatively, as emblematic of the current time period.

EXAMPLE
(as indicated by Suzy in earlier post)
Nobody looks up from their mobile phones anymore.

The topic was purposely intended to be ambiguous to allow for artistic interpretation (as Lewis said)
So it could also include an actual sign that also fulfils the above definitions.

Hope this helps

If so its in the wrong thread.
