Waiting

    Newer Older

    What pleases me about this mosaic is that I did not "set up" any of the clocks. I was actually present to take the photo at whatever-o'clock is showing on each of these. The photo title and the center square reflect that fact that in some cases I did wait for a minute or two in order to catch the minute hand as close to "straight up" as possible. In a few cases, though, I really was just in the right place at exactly the right time.

    1 o'clock, 2 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 4 o'clock, 5 o'clock, 6 o'clcok, 7 o'clock, 8 o'clock, 9 o'clock, 10 o'clock, 11 o'clock, 12 o'clock, waiting area.

      This is so great!
      Of course, you should print it out and make a clock from it. You'd have to shift it round a bit I suppose, so that the 12 was bang in the middle of the top.
      There are some great chapters on 'waiting' and 'routines' in this book, which I'm really enjoying.

      I love this one! I love clocks and have a collection of them (and no two tell the exact same time) :)

      Thanks, everyone, for the comments. Martha, maybe I'll do that project if I can find the time (get it?). Linda, even more clock-squircles in my photostream:

      That center image is almost the opposite of the clock with no hands. This implies 'always waiting,' to me. :-)
