Thematic Photographic 375 - Time

And the clock strikes...
Deerfield Beach, FL
December 2014
We spend so much of our lives, awake and asleep, governed by time. We set alarms before bed, rush to meet deadlines during the workday, then count the minutes until our meetings are over and we can return to the comforts of home and family. We settle on specific activities based on the blocks of time within which they'll realistically fit. Everything we do is ultimately governed in some way by the relentless ticking of a second hand or its digital equivalent.

While we often find ourselves wishing we could speed up or slow down those infernal hands, we always seem to end up back where we started, with the stark realization that we have no control over its passage.

But we can still have fun with time as a theme, right?

Your turn:  Thematic is our weekly theme-based photo learning, exploration and enjoying thing. Pick a pic or two or ten that evokes - or merely suggests - this week's theme - time - then post it (them) to your blog, website, Facebook page or other social media presence. Leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Pop into other participants because these things are more fun when shared. Click here if you'd like more background on how Thematic works.

There is no doubt in my mind that time marches on - faster and faster, the older I get.

I didn't mean off-line in the usual sense, I meant 7 photographs and a lot of lateral thinking! Go on, have a look - http://gillymaccsphotos.blogspot.com
