Have You Got the TIme?


I found this rack of fine old wristwatches at On A Shoestring in Bluff Park.  Don't you love the interesting faces as well as the lovely old worn bands?

Nice lighting and textures for these old watches. I should probably wear two of them to stay on time!

Yep, love them all, and for sure they can tell of 'times' past.

Eeyore said...

Looks like they've got not just "the" time, but several times. Neat find.

A colorful array.

Oh, the stories each of these could tell. All about time and the people who spent it in their presence.

A timeless photo.

Did you know that in watch ads the hands are always set to 2:10 or 1:50? True.

My sister is a watch addict, she would love this place ..

A nice way to display some old watches!

Beautiful photograph. I love all the amber tones in it. I love how you can take a simple photo of something that most people would walk by without noticing, and you make it into a beautiful story.

Nice image! I think I need to find a new watch there.

You could have saved this for the likely Dec. 1 theme. The warm background moves this picture up a couple of notches.

Virginia said...

hey Sam Collins! Thanks for stopping by my blog. We share a love of B'ham photographs. :)

Thanks everyone for hanging with me as I continue my terrific training at the Apple Store. I'll be back to a more normal schedule here soon. Thanks for your patience.
