I knew I had to snap this image the moment I saw the old man’s reflection in the floor-to-ceiling glass windows of Ninethirty by Awfully Chocolate. The modern decor of the corridor contrasted starkly with the age of the person to produce a surreal mix of fact and fantasy. I almost jumped into that the glass window right then for I saw a time machine. What with those bizarre lights and dim lighting falling upon the glass. How could the time machine not have been real?
I do not regret my life, but I am a curious person; if I could, I probably would.
I had nary a second to shoot before the man walked out of the magic spot that would nail the composition for this photo. I managed two shots, and this is the better one.
If you could walk across the boundaries of time, either go back or forth, what would you most want to do?
