Weekly Photo Challenge: Now (Clock)

This week’s  photo challenge is Now.

Clocks (and watches) always remind us of Now – the present moment. Of course, it is related to the concept of time or even to relativity.

While travelling in the Latvia, I stumbled across this clock tower. The face of the clock is interesting , so were the details around the edges.

I have to take this picture at an angle as the clock tower was quite tall. By doing so, I compressed the clock’s image in the vertical direction. Thinking about it, it is not the clock face that I want to compress, it is time that I want to compress and if possible, save time into a bottle as the Singer Jim Croce suggested in his Time in a Bottle lyrics.DSC_0063

On the subject of time, I am a big fan of Albert Einstein. One quotation from him is “The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.”  For instance, I didn’t hit you with eight blog posts at the same time. You only received one post in the last eight days, one post at a time.
Einstein also indicated that time is only an illusion. The fact that one of his best friends died first didn’t matter him that much; they will soon meet.
