Placing an order in an air conditioned office

Despite the English signs, this communication took place actually in Prague.

It's tragic what the quotidian has become.

Switch the clock back fifty years, and folks would have been animated - at the very least.

It's also such bad manners.

But a clever shot!

Are they placing their orders using a phone app? I’ve seen it in some restaurants already, though they were using tablets affixed to the table.

If that's the only ordering technique available, I'd walk straight out.

Reminds me of one of my rare shoots in Florida - Ft Lauderdale: my wife, the model and I had dropped into this bar/café during the morning for a soft drink and it took forever for a waiter lad to arrive. Eventually one did, and after he left us the girl whispered: "Rob, you idot, they don't want to serve us: we're in a gay bar!" I should have noticed from the short shorts, but hey, who thinks of gay when on a shoot and thirsty? Who thinks of it anyway?

Live and learn.

That's why they stage those in-your-face parades. You can not not think/hear/see of them these days.

There is, then, some residual value in a little resort town like mine after all!

Can't speak for the capital today, but I do remember during the 60s, on a shoot, being taken to a bar in one of Palma's yacht clubs and being shocked and physically distressed seeing, for the first time, two guys sitting and cuddling on a bench in the gloom. I could not believe my eyes. I did not want to believe my eyes.

The closest I saw to that after that was back in Glasgow during a shoot for a hairdresser, where two of 'em gave a conversational impression of being gay, but I imagined they just wanted to be seen to be playing the expected rôle of the time. Perhaps they hoped it would bring each of them one of the associated girlie cars in its wake?

To each his own.

Perhaps you two could keep your homophobia to yourselves?

It took millennia to develop that gag reflex. Ain't gonna disappear in a few years.

When they start keeping it off the streets, sure. What's publicly displayed, can be publicly commented on.

Just because something has become legal, doesn't mean that everyone all of a sudden has to like it.

You see what happens when you post naughty pictures of two people not speaking?

What about homophilia, then? Would that delight you, perchance, or can you take it or leave it?

Welcome to the 1950s, folks.

Great decade! Took until the mids for my life really to begin, but turned out worth the wait!
