Project 52: Week 7

time [tahym] noun, adjective, verb, timed, tim·ing.

  • the system of those sequential relations that any event has to any other, as past, present, or future; indefinite and continuous duration regarded as that in which events succeed one another.
  • duration regarded as belonging to the present life as distinct from the life to come or from eternity; finite duration.
  • a system or method of measuring or reckoning the passage of time: mean time; apparent time; Greenwich Time.
  • a limited period or interval, as between two successive events: a long time.
  • a particular period considered as distinct from other periods: Youth is the best time of life.
This weeks theme of time wasn't too hard. I was based in Queensland (at my mum and dad's house) so I had a different environment to shoot in as well, which was great.

Third place was the tree rings. As a tree grows, it produces new layers of wood around the trunk, just under the bark. If a tree is cut down, the layers are visible in a cross section. The layers appear as a set of concentric circles known as tree rings. In general, one layer of wood grows each year. Each layer consists of two colors of wood: light-colored "earlywood" that grows in the spring and summer plus darker, denser "latewood" from the fall and winter.Second place goes to the clock hanging in my mum and dad's house. This is a very literal interpretation of time! Some of my other photos (which didn't make the cut for this post) were more abstract.
In first place is the time signature in the music sheet (the Norwegian Cradle Song for those that are interested). In a music sheet, the time signature appears at the beginning of the piece, as a time symbol or stacked numerals immediately following the key signature of the clef. There are various types of time signatures, depending on whether the music follows simple rhythms or involves unusual shifting tempos.
Stay tuned for next week, the theme is "Red".
