I wanted to captured the speed with which time eludes us. I found my watch particularly suited for that. Except for some retouching, no Photoshop was used. This was captured in one shot with 3 swift bursts of the flash and my old Dimage 7Hi.

Another time inspired work

    i like this one Peter it really does get across just how much time slips through our fingers…..wasted watching t.v or standing in queues, i try not to do either too much! Like your colors and angle too!

  • Yes, horrible the way time seems to speed up when you get older. :)
    Don’t have time for TV, so I don’t have one. :)
    Only an occasional movie or series on DVD every now and again.

    Striking for two reasons: 1) great shot, great composition. 2) I was planning to do something the like with my clock or watch. Just got me a flash that perform repetitive flashes…

  • Thanks, again, I’m very happy with all your comments Peter as you have chosen my less popular work and it’s great to get some more comments on them.

    Great shot! Three bursts of your flash? I tried using three in-camera exposures, but that didn’t quite look right. Guess I’ll have to read the manual for the SB 800 flash. Great looking red second hand, too!

  • Hey Jan, I used one exposure (bulb I think) and triggered the flash three times. However, my flash(es) go beyond the SB 800 a bit. I’ve got a set of small studio flashes with some extras. They are not very powerful but then again, I both them for my still life work. Unfortunately, they are completely unused at the moment due to my fascination with painting with light. Thanks for another comment and Fav Jan!
