An old picture

Recommended Posts

大家好,

I was going through some old pictures, and I said, "这张照片很旧。"

However, I became perplexed when I wondered how to say something like, "This picture is 3 years old." or "This picture was taken in 2003."

Hmmm... If anyone could help, I would really appreciate it!

非常感谢!:mrgreen:

这张照片三岁 for the first one I think.

But don't take my word for it.. I'm a beginner :)

If I'm not mistaken, 岁 is for the ages of people, correct?

For example:

她十八岁。

In contrast (Quote from Dict.cn):

这树约莫已有600年树龄了。

Consider ->

"This picture is 3 years old." -> 這張照片是三年前拍的。

"This picture was taken in 2003." -> 這張照片是(在)2003年拍的。

嗯! That sounds perfect! When I was thinking about it, I wasn't putting in 拍, and it sounded weird. But thanks, Skylee, for clearing that up!

I owe you one! :mrgreen: 谢谢!

这是张三年前[拍]的照片。

这是2003年[拍]的照片。

I think the most accurate (although not most used) way of translating the english sentence:"this picture is 3 years old" is:

这张照片有三年老了

maybe it is weird,but we used to say :这张照片是三年前(拍)的。/这张照片是03年(拍)的。
