Series: Still Life - (44) - From a very young age, I remember it to be the dominant object on one of the two bedside tables of our parents' bedroom, with their photos appearing in their open "doorways" and thinking that they were watching us when we were secretly going there for any disorder.
I took it out of the wardrobe for photography, it no longer works, but I appreciated it more than ever as a design of its time. It's in the 1950s, the "shutters" are closing and ... it hides the time.

Nice piece of design.....and a wind up clock! A great memory of your parents, Dimitris. My mother died almost a year ago, and about a month before, my aunt, who lives in Philadelphia, told me that my mother had a collection of letters between my parents durning the War, my dad in his mid 20's, my mother in her late teens. Both raging hormones, new in their relationship, and being apart for a few years. She did indeed have an old suitcase full of letters. It is almost embarrassing reading them. And a side of my parents I never knew. And to think she had that all those years and neither my sister or I knew.

Special beyond words--- Something you saw and considered every day is the best of heirlooms!

A treasured item . You have succeeded in stopping time for one moment Dimitris, as if to forever remember our parents when they were in their prime and would of course never get old on us.
A Fantastic and very touching photo
Cheers Walt

So much to like here. The design, and hte way that your technique has let it be the focus, but has presented it really well. The personal details, that there are pictures of yoru parents there. An heirlook.

And, as a photographer, I love the name - ISOMAX...
