Thank you for your thoughts.
I'm almost afraid to comment, because there seems to be a joke here, but I'm totally missing it. All I see is a sharp, in-focus picture of a clock and an sharp picture of an out-of-focus picture of a waving hand. Without the title, I wouldn't see any point at all. It's stark and somewhat puzzling. Anyway, I'm guessing that I'm missing an obvious pun, so I'll be watching to see how big a fool I am. ;-)
This is right out of The Far Side. If you don't find those cartoons bizarrely comic, no amount of explanation will suffice. That's the whole thing about a visual non sequitur, it neatly side steps the rational mind. Tick-tock and bye-bye.
I see more Man Ray than Far Side.
OBJECT TO BE DESTROYED
Pavel, do you know the origin of the sculpture in your photo?
Maybe 'hand' is a little obvious with clock?
Could the point be the counterpoint?
Thank you dcstep.
Of course, you can see it as a joke/caricature, there is no restrictions. I considering the name of this thread as a title.
p.s.: This is not a contest, no judging of replies
Thank you Jack.
I try to add a drop of meaning when capturing moving object.
Thank you Sam.
I should admit that I was inspired by work of the Man Ray you've mentioned.
I did not draw this interesting parallel between the sharp/still clock hand and the moving photo of my hand as representation of it. I like your "angle".
I like this. In the photo, time seems to stop while motion continues elsewhere.
The shadows provide additional dimension & depth. Can't tell if it's an illusion or not but everything appears to be ever so slightly off kilter.
Thank you Ricochetrider.
The light was a reflection of sun off the hardwood floor.
Given my penchant for abstract images, I found myself gazing at this one for quite a while. Well done, Pavel.
I've loved Far Side for decades.
Thank you Michael.
I glad you find it interesting.
