30 Days of Photographs III: Fast

Well, Day 1 of 30 Days of Photographs III was a great success! Lots of people came out to play, and the photos were simply amazing. Keep it up, people, and maybe I won't have to get the whip out. Day 2 is Fast. Add your link at the bottom of the page, and make sure to check out the other photos while you're at it.


Fast

Nothing has ever, or will ever, move as fast as time. I know this because just yesterday I thought I had lots of time to sort out my photo for Day 2, but by some cruel twist of fate, I suddenly had no time at all. Which is why it's now way past midnight, and I'm busy making a long-exposure shot of a clock and trying to schedule this post while frantically trying to figure out how many hours of sleep I'll be getting tonight.

  1. If I had a time machine, I wouldn't go back to visit with Jesus, or Abraham Lincoln, or even to the night of my high school prom, which was pretty significant to me if memory serves correctly. Nope, I'd go back to the minute right before we had the idea to do this 30 Days of Photographs thing, and I'd distract you with a magic trick or something so that it never, ever got off the ground.

    The end.

  6. Groucho Marx once said "Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana." One of my all time favourite sayings. Nice pic.

  7. I was trying to come up with a funny comment and realized that in doing so, I'm now late for work. That's irony, right?

  9. Why yes, yes it is. You really ought to come up with your funny comments faster. ;)

  10. I love that quote, and I know it's one of your favourites. ;) When I was writing the post I actually thought about it and about you.

  11. You should definitely get your money back!

  12. Oops, I hope it wasn't my fault!

  13. Yeah, some things do seem to move faster than should be reasonably possible.. ;)

  14. Nothing moves as fast as time except when you are trying to take a long-exposure picture...
    Nice shot!!!!

  15. Time is not on our side, is it? The Rolling Stones weren't right. :)

  16. I know, right! The longest 207 seconds of my life.

  17. Sadly, it certainly is not..

  18. Sweet! Really well done, Ziva.

  19. Thank you, Cheryl! I loved your photo, too, but it wouldn't let me leave a comment. I'll check back later and see if it'll work. :)

  20. Perfect for today's theme. And you're right, nothing moves faster than time.

  22. Sleep - something you always want but never have enough of. Much like chocolate. ;)

  23. Like that old song says, "Time keeps on slippin' slippin' slippin'..." , well you know the rest. Love this shot, Zeva.

  24. Thanks, Margaret! Time is indeed a slippery thing...

  25. Good one, Ziva. Quick! Catch that clock!

  26. Hey Ziva! Now THIS is a nice photo. I can compose photos, but have minimal talent with the technical side. I'll buy a camera and a book sometime! Indigo

  27. Thanks, Reffie! That clock is just too quick for me, and it has a tendency to always make me late. Stupid thing.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hey Indigo, it's nice to see you here. I'm glad you like the photo; it took me three tries to get it right, so I can't claim to be all that good with the technical side, either. But at least photography is a lot of fun to play around with.

  29. Finally! Disqus has been quite the bitch lately.


    One day, you'll have to shoot a video to show us how to do that. It's really a cool looking shot - the shadow on the face of the clock and contrast on either side. Did you use a flash?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm also unable to leave comments on Cheryl's blog (and John's), leading me to believe she's blocked us. Not that I'm paranoid or anything.

  31. God bless you, Nicky. Please let me know if you need to borrow my flux capacitor or some AA batteries. Anything to get this project off the ground.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Thank you, Lauren! It's really not too tricky to do. No flash, just a dark room (in this case the only light source was my laptop screen off to the side, that's what created the light and shadow,) a tripod and a camera that will allow long exposures. :)
