Friday, eleven minutes to quittin' time. The clock seems to have stopped and time becomes a vague concept of miserable anticipation. Ernest Hemingway himself couldn't be more depressing.


Chuck Norris walks into a bar.
No one else walks out alive.
(sorry, I got caught up in the "walks into a bar" thread earlier.)

Amazing how you can have a phone on your desk for years and never notice the dust until you take a silly whim, a moment of total non-creativity, and shoot a macro. It's sad , really, reduced to this after just one week. I used this pic mostly because it was handheld at 1.5 seconds and still came out relatively crisp.
The smiley face sticker was stuck on my phone by the son of a friend who was visiting his mom at the office. It's been there about six years.
Maybe I'm in a rut...

meridian mail... ahhh the memories. love the smiley face making a weak partial appearance- really adds to the clocking moving backwards feel.

I a random sticker stuck on my computer at work that's been there for over 3 years and I can't even remember where it came from. Nice shot
Guns don't kill people. Chuck Norris kills People.

Macros are humbling that way, with the dust.

You seem not to like this shot, but I think you did a good job capturing that Friday-afternoon-time-has-started-moving-backward feeling.

They found out that Chuck Norris' tears cure cancer. Too bad Chuck Norris has never cried.

Your story is so poetic! I know what you mean about time crawling though... That is a really clear picture for being handheld!! I tried 1/20s earlier and bah! the results were blurry :) KUDOS X 2!!!!

I'm so shocked that the shutter was at 1.5 sec handheld. I think you stopped along with your clock. Friday's can do that, huh? (And I like the Chuck Norris jokes, gotta love it!)
