Passing Time (theme)
I had all sorts of ideas for today’s ‘all about time’ theme for outdoor shots involving long exposures but a complete lack of any photogenic light and impending rain put paid to those. Instead I resorted to using our bedroom clock. I pre-visualised this as a strong black and white image, emphasising the lines of the hands and numbers. However I discovered an unexpected bonus when I started shooting. Thanks to the overcast weather outside I needed to use an exposure of several seconds, meaning that the clock’s second hand registered in the frame each time it stopped moving. What more could I have asked for in my attempts to depict passing time?!
