I showed this photo to Ziva before posting it, and she didn’t like it.
Because it’s fake. I took the picture of the clock, all right, but used a special-effects filter to create the lake below it.
As far as Ziva’s concerned, that’s not real photography. The issue of respect was raised, and I was forced to get rather stern with her, even though I understand her point of view, and generally agree.
But I can’t help myself.
I really, really, really love the look of this photo. I like the idea it creates that time is sinking into the dark waters of mysterious lake. I love the Steampunk look of the clock, and the richness of the yellow and turquoise, which happens to be my birth stone if you’re looking for a gift to give me.
To me, this is a photo illustration, and would be perfect for a book. Perhaps a book about the time and effort it can take to foster proper respect between dear friends.
