Obtuse Meanings

I was online a little while ago and I came across a couple of very interesting photographs. After I'd looked at them for a little while, a deeper meaning became apparent in each photo and I wanted to share my thoughts on that.

My first picture
To some this picture just looks like a huge pile of videocassettes. To me it symbolizes the rapidly advancing technologies today. Today, VCR's are being replaced by DVD players and videocassettes replaced by DVD's. The VCR's recording function was all the rage when it was first introduced, but today it is becoming outdated and obsolete in a world in which DVR's are becoming much more common.

My second picture,

This picture is of a little girl with a cigarrette in her mouth and a beer can in her hand. This to me symbolizes how people are getting into drugs and alcohol at a much younger age. In today's society, more and more teenagers are getting into drugs, many more than in previous years.
