veritum dies aperit

Its still a work in progress - im working on the feel as its a bit rough in areas, getting the clock right isnt easy, you cant hold it there and get it right - i have tried and actually got a different sort of image I will paste later but this is the one I like, the lomo effect works well here, high contrast for the feel which is what I wanted - its more about the intent of the image rather than super detailing.

 

I am not sure the clock is 100% right, I wanted a slight angle here like a cocked head and the size is pretty right for my head but... Im not sure.

 

Why?

 

Dont know really, wanted to do some more self portrait work and for some reason this came to me, Magritte .. yes maybe or maybe its being on call and working all night, time is something im concious of right now, Hericletus put it best for my thinking - ""Everything flows and nothing abides; everything gives way and nothing stays fixed. You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters and yet others, go flowing on. Time is a child, moving counters in a game; the royal power is a child's."" Then againt he was a fatalist :)

 

Oh and what does veritum dies aperit mean? SImple - its time discovers the truth (the quote is attributed to Seneca)
