Day 99 - Time

Today's assignment of the Daily shoot was to illustrate time in a photograph. I decided to capture the spinning pendulum of the clock Peg bought me for my birthday a few years ago. I've always loved this type of clock. My parents and aunt and uncle bought one for my grandparents' anniversary. I remember admiring it when I was young. I was mesmerized by the spinning pendulum and found watching it quite calming. This type of clock not only represents time for but family, memories and comfort.

Great way to illustrate time. My parents also have a similar type of clock. It is quite mesmerizing!

I don't think I've ever seen a clock like that. Can you post a full-sized photo?

Great shot - love all of the reflective qualities, too! It is nice when an object creates such good feelings! :)

Excellent display of theme.

Very creative way to illustrate time! I like that it isn't an obvious photo of a clock but that it is still identifiable as a piece of one (I was able to figure out what it was before reading your post). I can also relate to fond memories of the past being associated with certain items.

Thanks for continuing to check in with my blog while I was absent from the blogging world for awhile! I was happy to see your comments! I'll try to be a better blogger :)

Sorry Gisele I don't have a full-sized pic. However, here's a wikipedia link with a photo of a very similar clock.
