Keeping Time

While I was on my big train trip from San Francisco to Moncton, I figured it would only make sense to have a pocket watch. I haven't owned or worn a watch in about a decade now, and I wouldn't ever want to have to wear one on my wrist again, so this made a lot of sense.

I also figured while looking for one, why skimp out, why not get a nice one, and especially one where you can actually see what's going on inside! It's very mesmerizing.

I also debated about the background on this, and decided that I liked the lines on lined paper, especially cause I could make them off angled to hopefully give it a bit of dynamics.

Good thing about this project, it definitely has got me thinking again, and interested in trying to capture different things than I normally would.

a friend of mine has one and it's always so awesome when someone asks him the time and he whips it out.
