The only way would be to remove the location from the one photo or to hide this photo with ⌘L. But then you can see the photo only in the Hidden photo albums.

I can still tell the correct dates and times if the dates are shifted systematically, and the photos taken at different locations do no longer mess up the collections view. And as an added bonus, the photos from my family members can easily be excluded from smart albums, using a date rule.
