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.
🙂 I think time is very individual – we all feel the clock ticking…somehow. And although it’s all down to seconds, minutes an hours they feel different to you and me.
Great post, I really like it.
HAPPY 2016, dear Michael! 🙂
Yes, some people feel that they never have enough time and yet some feel that they have to kill time!
YES! This is easily one of my favorite photo challenges! And on the subject of Time and the Now.. Getrude Stein has some lovely and intriguing poetry and copy on the topic.
I will check it out, thanks for the sharing!
Interesting clock and comments for us to ponder! Thanks for a year of great posts and best wishes for a Happy New Year!
Hi Marilyn, wish you a healthy, happy and progressive New Year!
A beautiful image, and well-chosen for the season. Thank you, Michael.
Glad that you like it, at the closing of a year and the beginning of a new one!
Haha! Actually I do get your 7 posts at the same time. (I’ve put it in weekly digest) But you’re right Time in its Northern, western conception is linear, so that not two things happen at the same time. The East and South rely more on a circular time concept, where indeed everything happens at the same time.
You pointed out quite rightly; I concur!
