Creative Photography

Roger has changed things up a bit over at the Creative Photography blog and done away with the weekly contest replacing it with a weekly photo meme instead. I guess it was just too hard to pick a winner from the great submissions plus creativity is probably a very hard thing to judge as it's all pretty subjective - just like art and photography in general.

So, instead of vying for a badge to put on one's sidebar, the idea now is for people to post a photograph, put a link up at the Creative Photography blog, and then go check out the other entries. Sounds good to me as it gives me a chance to share some of my pictures and not worry about whether they are worthy of winning an award or not. Cool, right?

This week's Creative Photography Meme submission is a picture that I took last week while out fooling around with some night shots. I converted it to black & white as I think it just looks better that way and gives it more "pop" ...

Courthouse Clock & Bank Building

This is the clock that stands in front of the courthouse in downtown Norwich and the chauteau-esque looking building behind it is one of the downtown banks. If I had to give it a title, I might consider calling this picture "Time Standing Still". What do you think?


  1. Can I steal it for the 7 things I didn't know Last Sunday? I always have a clock for the main photo.
    Can I, huh?
    Can I?

    This is a beautiful shot, Linda. I love the crispness and cleanliness of the photo. Great job.

  3. "Time Standing Still" is a great title for it,
    "This is a spooky clock, where time freezes and monster leap out from another dimension to suck out your brains"

    I think mine is rather catchy....

  4. What a great picture and perfect title. Brings back a scene from Back to the Future, too.

    PS I have changed the settings on my blog. sorry about the problems you have had.

    Linda, a creative shot indeed. The entire framing is very nicely taken with a added sense of spook to this picture in the night :)
