@mythli: Thanks, Mythili...Great to see your comment ...

Bettina from Los Angeles, United States

That is really great! It sure is the key to success! Excellently conceived and shot. I love that you have the clock facing itself, showing both sides to it. The knobs the buttons, we can see the word "alarm". That's perfect.

1 Sep 2010 10:44am

@Bettina: As everywhere else, it has been ingrained into me from childhood as to how precious time is.... But like all lesser mortals, I too suffer from procrastination..though I am much better now.. To an extent, this old alarm has helped me... Thanks Bettina for all your comments...

Don from spokane, United States

I like the novel way you've shown the clock, front and rear. Nice detail of this old timer!

1 Sep 2010 2:08pm

@Don: Yes, while I wanted to depict the keys, I found that just the back view was boring.. I then included the face using a mirror and it helped. Thanks Don for your comments.

Superbe compo ... du temps dans le temps.
Mais sonnerie peu agréable !... ))

1 Sep 2010 8:55pm

@tataray: Merci, beaucoup...

Amirossen from mashhad, Iran

i love the composition

1 Sep 2010 8:59pm

@Amirossen: Thank you..

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

I love the antiquated look of the clock here. Time management has always been a "work in progress" for me; particularly with all the photography I get swept up in. :-)
I get the sense that you would like to turn back time seeing that the face of the clock is backwards in this composition. :-)

1 Sep 2010 8:59pm

@Steven: Same here ,Steve on 2 counts... 1)Photos & aminus 3 ,though enjoyable,eats away time... 2) If only we could reverse time....hmmm.. Very glad you liked this shot,Thanks a lot.

Becky from los angeles, United States

i just love this shot - the old wind-up - just great!

k@ from Paris, France

Time mirroring, that's philosophical, indeed ! Love the idea !!

2 Sep 2010 8:23am

@k@: Thanks, Karine for your comment... Its a delight to get comments from you..Glad you love this idea/shot.

Dutçh from Chicagoland, United States

I like the study against the mirror!

2 Sep 2010 12:10pm

@Dutçh: It was actually done as an afterthought , when the shots of just the back of the clock looked boring... Glad you like it,Dutch.

Dilwenn from Bordeaux, France

The problem for me it is that I awake before the ringing, it is horrible :))

2 Sep 2010 3:10pm

@Dilwenn: Yeah..I know the feeling...My wife is pretty much the same...waking and switching the alarm even before it goes off... As for me, nothing short of an earthquake will wake me..let alone alarm clocks... Have a nice day

Pravin Patade from Fremont, United States

Love it :) I read that line somewhere in my PMP course ... Nice clock BTW, you should click more of it

3 Sep 2010 1:41am
