not so fast, my man. You have about half-hour left. Check out Bergman's movie "The Seventh Seal" to learn what you can do with that much time.
That's a pretty sharp turn from your usual external contemplation to the inner one. I like "new Mal". smile
Mal: hehe, thank you Z, a sharp turn indeed. As you know, I am looking for new avenues, I just need the time to convince myself that I have the ability to explore them.

BTW - "The seventh seal" is a fantastic movie!

all the best. mal

The really neat thing about living in Egg-timer World is that, when the world ends, you can just start it up again with the turn of a wrist.

And...if you are miserable, you can calculate how long the misery will last...
Mal: this timer had a sand man filling up the misery without the turn of the wrist Ray! hehe. All the best. mal
LOL at Ray, if you are trying to convey sadness it works.
Mal: indeed Nig, I thought it a mournful scene at that time, all the best. mal
wistful came to mind.
Mal: exactly Bill, perfect interpretation of the mood at that time. mal

Makes me sad looking at this.
Mal: thank you Aussie, the scene ended on a higher note, but you have interpreted the intent of the pic perfectly. mal

My wife grows a similar face when I take out the camera. I can understand why you would rather focus on the sand glass.

A great picture all round.
Mal: hehe, she groans when I get the cam out Louis, a familiar scene to us both.
This is plumbing blackdoggian depths of melancholia. Hourglasses crop up quite a lot in the history of art, so you are working in a rich tradition.
Mal: hehe, you are a master of words Ian! Love to have heard them next to my image, thank you. mal

This is a very good portrait- but was the sand-clock as well-known symbol necessary in in order to send a special message/intention? The title says all! Portraits might be a "new avenue" (but sorry, I'm only a little hobby-photographer)- for the "face of the human being is the most interesting landscape" as G.F. Lichtenberg once said.

a facial expression you can read much in, I suppose that you - perhaps being involved in that all- may be the best person to find out that all!
