    was really moved when reading a line from Balzac:

    "une vie terne et grise... où l'absence de toute émotion était une félicité."

    So I share with you this illumination. Indeed time is gray.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    The composition and tone are great, but for some reason I keep trying to bring the clock into focus and my head is starting to ache.

    Did you keep everything blurred on purpose?

    OWWW My brain *trying to focus* ....... to me It's just an out of focus picture of a clock right now. Maybe I'm too young and I'm missing the message. Please explain it to me :crazy:

    Honestly, going straight into reading the hours can make me uncomfortable. The psychological distance that an out-of-focus photo, such as this one, offers turns out to be an instance of felicity of impression for me. That's what I thought.

    Sorry for the eye sore. Does this one look less befuddling?

    i think it is much easier to look at with the clock in focus...but don't know if you were trying to do something by making it blurred.

    While the clock is in focus, the perceived lines fade. So I prefer the B&W outline more.

    Thanks for your comment.

    I also prefer the blurred one, though it might benefit by not being quite SO blurred. It has a nice, old feel to it :)

    You sent me right into re-editing the photo. :)

    I made some small adjustment. Thanks, it now appears in the way that I conceived.
