Eternal Moment by Cuellar Eternal Moment by Cuellar
Model Choochy with his Gradfather's pocketwatch...he took this out of his pocket toward the end of the session and wanted a picture with it... I could feel how special this watch was to him...and for that moment it seemed, time stood still... Quantum physicists no longer use the word time; instead they use the term Space-Time Continuum, because they know that time is a relative perception; it's not absolute. There is no past, future, then or now, before, or after: there is only the eternal moment...

Thank you so much for the Fav, and your comments, yes the Ring adds an extra little something there... and always have been fascinated by hands, I think they are the windows to the soul...I love thumb rings! :heart:

such a beautiful image, its so intimate but a subject everyone can feel has such power and substance. I love the colours and the simple relaxed gesture of looking at the watch and how you can see the motion of the hands and how they open it, its like a film still. really really beautiful. well worth the Daily Deviation :) x

Beautiful subject and composition.

But the distortions on the arm are quite heavy. Additionally it looks like there are small stripes on the arm. Is this caused by deviantArt or the compression of the image?
