    Default Picture

    Let's say I'm looking at a picture and I say:

    1. We are tired in this photo.
    2. We were tired in this photo.

    3. I think we are drunk in this photo.
    4. I think we were drunk in this photo.

    Do I use present tense or past tense when I'm looking at photos? Thanks.

    All are OK-- when you speak, are you thinking of the former event (2 & 4) or the present appearance (1 & 3)?
