Try to find the spot where the photographer was standing.
Never mind the date! - what about the time?
Left hand clock says 10:40. Right hand clock says 10:36.
Or is it a trick-of-the-eye due to parallax error?
It could be a trick of the eye...like being a passenger in a car and thinking the driver is speeding!
I wonder how these clocks are set - as one or individually? In which case one could be slow.
