I never have the patience to take the same image during night time and also day time.
The images show chandeliers. They stand out a lot during night time.
They are also called “hanging bells” in HK.
We only perceive time through changes.
Limestone stalactites in particular form extremely slowly – usually less than 10 cm every thousand years – and radiometric dating has shown that some are over 190,000 years old.
While I am in awe with these formations, I don’t particularly fancy seeing them lit up in multi-colors.
I prefer seeing them in their natural color and state.
There are so many things around us that remind us time is passing by, sometimes, too quickly.
This wall at Lithuania reminds me that once it was newly constructed and painted.
The paint came off, exposing the under-layers of plaster and down to the bare wall.
The windows became distorted as well.
The flowers give it a contrast, adding a bit of beauty to the aged wall.
This week’s DP theme for the photo challenge is Time.
The Great Wall has been built thousands of years ago; this is still one of the longest structures in the World.
Wish these walls could talk; so that they can tell us their stories.
I have converted them to Black and White, emphasizing the timelessness.
The original photos were taken during Autumn with some color foliage around.
The B&W, however, evoke more moods.
The next three days are public holidays for the Lunar New Year; so be prepared that there may not be any posting during the period.
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.
