Would The Times’ picture editor please come to the naughty step?

His hat is on the wrong way around, medals and name badge on the wrong tit each, he’s wearing a big girl’s blouse from the buttoning and he’s even gone so far as to mirror write his name.

Or, alternatively, the picture editor has inverted the photo left to right……

  1. “the picture editor has inverted the photo left to right”: there’s an awful lot nowadays gets inverted left to right.

    Or, alternatively, the picture editor has left intact a mirror selfie complete with offset eyeline . . .

    How’s it a mirror selfie? He’s looking straight in to the camera so we’d see the camera/phone.

  4. Creepy when a photo of a man looking into a mirror at a urinal and having a private slash can be published in our supposed paper of record

    Interesting. I was going by his right eye (his actual right, which would normally be on our left when looking at him but is on our right in the inverted view – Jesus) which looks offset.

    However, with appropriate apologies to Tim, I withdraw the mirror selfie excuse for the Times man. The picture is a crop of a wider view which clearly shows he’s not holding a phone or camera. I suspect it’s still a selfie though, with the camera/phone propped up on a counter top or something. The nutter’s quite fond of taking pictures of himself.

    The default setting for the screen camera is not mirror image.
