I wondered downtown one morning before work shooting some of Chicago's public clocks. This is the Father Time Clock on the Jeweler's Building. On top is a winged bearded guy with a scythe and an hourglass which is supposed to represent time's constant one-way movement. Most of details of the clock are lost in my entry, but you can see some of them better here:

I got pretty lucky with the light. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than be good. ;)
Thanks for the comments and favorites.

Beautifully done. I love the balance and tones. Great warm glow and all the elements (shadows, street lights and etc) tie into time and the clock.

Wonderful street scene. The light, especially the reflected light, is absolutely fabulous! I think that the perfect positioning of the clock has turned what would have been silhouette and blown light into this magical image.
My choice for the blue.

I really like the movement in this, which is so good to depict time
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/24/2014 01:52:21 PM
One of my top choices. The light is amazing. Great shadows. Plus it really shows how the time is passing by. (voted earlier)
