Seizing the Time

– The best way to seize the time is to stop looking at your watch (my quote).

  1. Lovely shot Paula, it definitely captures the idea of passing time with its slight vintage look. And I love your quote – very true – and I’m glad you have been original when most of us haven’t!

    • You’ve paid me the greatest compliment, Debs. It is somehow hard to believe that you weren’t original. I still remember your guest challenge on the same subject that was nothing if not original. Have a great weekend πŸ™‚

  2. Oh, what an inspiring quote, Paula!! It goes right into my little books of gems. πŸ™‚
    Ha en god helg!
    Klem, Hanne πŸ™‚


  3. I couldn’t agree more Paula. Looking at your watch every five minutes does encourage you to think that time marches on slowly!

    • πŸ™‚ I remembered you when I was taking it this morning and your perspective shot – twigs and the obelisk πŸ˜€ Thank you, Tobias.

  5. So true. Many people don’t even wear a watch anymore. Just look at your cel.
    Picture is precious Paula. Putting together two (un)related things is poetry.
    The hand from an (independent) sculpture with the clock.
    Bon week-end.

  6. That’s a beautiful composition, Paula. The positioning of those hands convey an intense sense of helplessness and exasperation. In today’s hectic, restless and fast paced world aimed at being more and more ‘productive’, we end up being overworked, over stressed and overburdened. And life often gets reduced to a race against time. Personally, I see this image as an expression of this fact. For me, this is one of your best images πŸ™‚


  7. I like the composition Paula with the 2 hands reaching out to capture time, and love your original quote, as some one else commented above, now I am retired I do not wear a watch, but I still find myself watching the time, a habit I can’t break

    • Thanks, sweetie. The sculpture is several feet away and it is considerably lower than the clock in the photo. It took some maneuvering to achieve this illusion πŸ™‚

      • I am smiling imagining you crouching on a sidewalk or bench. I can often be found in some rather interesting pose trying to get just the right angle. πŸ™‚


        • Thank God, I did not have to crouch. I still can’t do it, Sue, and I am not sure when I will be able to take stairs either up or down. It has been really hard these past six months with my knee, and I only dared to take my camera outside some weeks ago.


          • Oh dear Paula I am so sorry to hear that! I can only imagine how difficult it has been. I am hopeful there is a treatment plan to improve your quality of life. Sending hugs across the miles. Xo


  10. Che bello vivere in un’isola deserta , senza orologi ne’ giornali………
    La tua citazione e’ giustissima…( we want more , from you!)
    Molto azzeccata anche l’originale foto!
