what appears to be modern camera.
Not that modern and if it's not that it's something very close, he could be really into retro and have one from as far back at the late 19th century that looks like that.

The shades seem to have some side pieces which are more common in the first half of the 20th century. Thing is, people often have an idea about the past that is very rigid, so when we think of the 40s we think everyone walks around in suits but they really didn't. Or look at this gorgeous yet renegade time traveller:



He must have grown tired of posing for Abercrombie & Fitch ads and decided to use his time machine to go take down the Lincoln Administration.

EDIT: had to change a k to a g, I seem to do a cross lateral thing when writing thing or think sometimes.

Shut up. It is so a time traveler. Just accept it. Neener neener neener.

Photo taken in the late 1940s-early 1950s. Yet take notice of the fellow on the middle right.
The sunglasses, t-shirt, and what appears to be modern camera.
Photoshop or Irresponsible time traveler caught on film???

Either a well done 'Shop or the camera is actually a pack of smokes.  Didn't they have aviator sunglasses in the late forties/early fifties?

No, it's most likely a camera it's just that cameras that size aren't all that modern, have a look at my post, there's nothing modern in the picture. :)

It's what appears to be a hoodie and t-shirt that seems modern.

Yeah, covered that.

Not exactly, but thank you all the same, Encyclopedia Brown. You've blown the lid off time travel.

I've no idea who Encyclopedia Brown is but I assume you're going for snarky there.

But apparently didn't read for meaning very well, again.

Calm as a mill pond dear boy, not sure why you're upset enough to attempt to be snarky.

Making snarky jokes about things? Who does that, especially on this board? Must be a very angry person.

Well I'm thinking coming back two hours later with a specialy created image rather underlines how upset you brother is. He just seems to get really upset over trivialities, often due to his not reading things carefully. It's no skin of my nose if he's satsfied with being like that, it just seems like it would be wearisome.  :)
