This time, I was on a mission: shoot the clock at the Musée d'Orsay in ways its never been shot before. I didn't use a camera filter, but I did use a filter in the environment of the museum itself. And it was a complete mind-frack for the passing people. They looked at me as if I was crazy. Then, they would point their camera in the normal light, with nothing obstructing their view as if to say, "Duh, if you want a picture of the clock, this is how you're supposed to do it!"
But this no ordinary clock. And this is no ordinary time. Our digital age has opened up the creative floodgates for the average photographer.
Time is one of life's greatest metaphors.
It's free, but it's priceless.
You can't own it, but you can use it.
You can't keep it, but you can spend it.
Once you've lost it, you can never get it back.
It flies, it lies, but worst of all, it stops.
Now is the time, to realize
just how extraordinary this time is.
No Ordinary Time; Musée D'Orsay, Paris, France
