The lights in the background, the type of table the people are standing/sitting around, and the number of shot glasses suggest the photo reflects a bar scene. From the photo, I cannot tell whether or not the people are out celebrating a particular occasion and/or event, or whether or not the photo
is of just another night at the bars? Based on experiences with my own friends, the fact that the group is moderately large and each person in the group is taking a shot at the same time, suggests to me that a more specific celebration is taking place, rather than an average night out. Drinking together (especially at the same time) makes the experience seem quite social in nature, friends partaking in an activity together. The people in the group appear fairly close in proximity; therefore, I would imagine the photo to be of a group of friends, as opposed to people who just met at the bar. -Nicole Ortegòn

Young people drinking a white liquid probably at an indoor facility (artificial lighting and solid commercial furniture). At least 2 different kinds of bottles - I can't tell if the beverage is alcoholic. Everyone is drinking at the same time indicating that someone might have said something like "bottoms up!" and everyone drank - could be the man in the right foreground since he looks to be a little further in his gulp than the rest. Four are wearing black, one pastel, and one a colorful outfit
- could be a party after a formal function where those in black had a role and the others didn't. Possible graduation party? -Steven A. Bluhm

Young adults...mixed group but mostly girls. Drinking because of peer pressure or to get a buzz. Friends at a bar - drinking crowd. I can't tell time of day because there are no windows and it is indoors. -Sharon O'Brien.

College students and their friends drinking shots at a bar or club in order to forget about their day life and responsibilities, like going to class. Drinking for fun, for oblivion. Maybe in another town or downtown on a Thursday night. -Kim Kessaris

Six college students are drinking shots of alcohol in a bar at night. Four of them are young women. It is dark and probably smelly in there. -Sharon Irish

A fine example of peer pressure. You're all getting shit faced so I had better too, so I won't look like a dork. -Jim Dailey
