Reflections Weekend... À la recherche du temps perdu

This window of old clocks makes me think of Marcel Proust's À la recherche du temps perdu (In Search of Lost Time). I photographed this window when the shop was closed, but must really try to see if they'll let me take a photo inside. Stepping into the shop is like entering another era... I'll see what I can do. In the meantime, enjoy the reflections...especially the one of that cute little black dog.

See other reflections at James' Newtown Daily Photo.

Love it! I have always like old clocks.

Yes, this is, indeed, a very timely photo. :~} And your cute little dog makes it! I took pictures in a clock shop in Florence, much to the owner's chagrin. Perhaps if I'd asked first . . . nah, I think he still would have said no. But good luck.

The clocks make a great subject for reflections, a bit of a double entendre. The little black dog fits into the scene perfectly!

Bon weekend, mon amie!

Quand le temps perdu se retrouve, est-ce surprenant que ce soit sur l'étalage de quel accorte commerçant ?

Bravo pour le cliché.

Indeed an amazing collection. Now that you've used this photo, I'm wondering what you'll come up with for the December "Time" TD.
