I was reminded recently, the dangers of taking things out of context. Sometimes the tone of someone’s voice or their body language can give a completely different meaning to a conversation that may be lost through text translation alone; and vice versa.
This made me think of all the screen-caps and fun reaction gifs that fans make, which often have nothing to do with the film or event they originally came from.
Sometimes a still screen-cap freezes a moment in time that may be hard to discern out of context, while a moving gif of the same moment may make things a bit clearer.
Then there are times when a moving gif is just too darn fast!
It can be nice when someone validates your thoughts (no matter how inappropriate)
But it’s also helpful when a picture puts certain questions to rest.
There are times when you know the context but choose to ignore it
and there are times when knowing the context kills the magic.
But taking things out of context isn’t always bad, sometimes it can bring an unexpected smile!
