Would it be okay if i used your photo as a visual aid in a presentation about the poem "But I can't" by W.H. Auden for my high school english class, to represent how time is always moving around us but seems to stop in our eyes, in the way we see things as people in a society. I love this photo it almost looks unreal, like something photoshopped.
"Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
Tired of lying in the sunshine Staying home to watch the rain And you are young and life is long And there is time to kill today And then one day you find Ten years have got behind you No one told you when to run You missed the starting gun
And you run, and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking Racing around to come up behind you again The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older Shorter of breath and one day closer to death
Every year is getting shorter Never seem to find the time Plans that either come to nought Or half a page of scribbled lines Hanging on in quiet desparation is the English way The time is gone The song is over Thought I'd something more to say ..."
Absoutley stunning. I hope you don't mind me asking, but how did you get the clock in your eye? I'm working on a project right now witht the same concept, but I can't get it to look realistic. Mind helping me out? Thanks, doll.
How did you get the clock, but not your hand? It's an amazing shot. My problem is that I've created a cartoon eye in photoshop and I want to get a reflection in there, but since it's a cartoon I have to put it in there digitally, and I'm stuck. Any suggestions, dollface? :]
