2 Minutes to Midnight

By Kako
Noticed my partner's watch on the windowsill near to a vase of flowers I was taking shots of.

Image taken earlier today despite the date...does anybody have a date watch that always shows the correct date?

Buy a Seiko Perpetual Calendar; I think it calculates months correctly and adds an extra day in February every four years for the next 200 years. Alternatively you buy a Rolex with a magnifying glass over the date display box so you adjust dates promptly.
Once you grow old and the eyesight gets worse you don't mind if you lose a get worried if you lose your life.

I think you should have included the crown of the watch in the picture and use a mirror to reflect sone of the light onto the warch to light the watch so you shoot it .

Thanks Isabel...always nice to get positive comments.

pablophotographer...thanks for the suggestion on watch...I was being a bit 'tongue-in cheek' in i wouldn't buy a watch with a date as shown because they go out of sync too easily and are a pain to keep adjusting!

Fully agree i could have taken some better compositions etc...but I only took this one shot of the watch a spontaneous one having finished shooting some flowers. Never intended taking the watch at all.

Having said that I was quite pleased with the subject matter so might take some more shots as an intentional shoot in which case i'll play around with background, lighting, composition a bit more.
