Theme Day: WAITING


Today is THEME DAY within the City Daily Photo blogging community. Our theme is: WAITING. As I thought of how to visually interpret the theme, every way seemed to center around time, that WAITING was all about time (real and imagined). It pointed to our reliance on keeping time, marking time, planning our time and being on time ...or being late. We seem to spend years WAITING...on someone or something. This old watch has seen its share of windings, resettings and showing time. And gauged years, several decades and thousands of hours of WAITING. Take a look at the other scenes of WAITING at my fellow CDP sites throughout the blog world HERE.

That is a beautiful old watch Frank! I have my grandfather's old watch and it looks similar to this one, except it is square shaped.

A timepiece of any kind certainly is a symbol of WAITING. I wonder if watches are still valued as heirlooms anymore?

Waiting... waiting for time to pass. Waiting for the old-style watch to run down so you can rewind it.

Good take on the theme of "waiting".

Very creative, Frank. Looks to be a very old watch - family heirloom?

And I'm glad you finally posted a picture of it. I mean, it's about time!

Frank...great interpretation of the theme. That watch has some character!
Yes, the fire is roaring, and the dogs have been wearing their coats. They left a message for Dr. Porter the other day, did he get it?

It was one of the simplest answer to this theme day, we all misure our waiting time and again. So a wonderful old watch is a perfect choice.
