Hello

Well, this month's theme may seem related to some of my submissions (history is my weakness), but please do not feel obliged to follow this obvious association. In fact, I had a different idea before and the theme was conceived as an answer to my last photo great deficiency -- that there was a backstory that had to be told separately.

What I mean is -- let's try to capture more than a snapshot that photo usually is. Let's show that the moment the shutter clicks is anchored in past and/or future also; maybe it's a beginning, maybe an end, maybe a pivot, moment of change -- or in contrary, a steady process that began long ago and will go on. Or just find a really picturesque clock

Ah, there should be rules of course. Nothing new (just copied from earlier contests):

Photos must be taken during this month
Photos must be taken by the posting member
Photos must be taken with a camera phone
Users post only one photo per entry
Users can change the entry only once
Users must name the phone they used

Last three days of this month are for voting

Owww. Sure, thanks for heads-up (although I considered briefly fabricating an explanation in relation to topic ). One day, young man, you too will see years passing by so fast you'd fail to count them...

OK, let's get the game started. Here is my entry:

Background story:
Both me and my other half are Bloody Foreigners (tm) living in the UK and as such have no relatives here, thus facing a challenge every school break, runnng out of our whole year's holiday entitlement by mid August and all that jazz. Our kids just spent two weeks with my sister in another country, affording us a much needed releaf. This picture is from the flight when I was going to collect them. To me, it is the embodiment of our constant struggle against time.

Taken with a Jolla (1) on Friday, 12 August 2016.

Another couple of Bloody Foreigners with no relatives living in the UK as well. Also saving up holidays for a long trip. I can understand all the feelings!

The middle to August here means "Back to School" time. Sales tax "holidays," school supplies, new shoes and new backpacks.

First day of elementary school means a new grade for children, a realization that they've gotten a year older and so have you, and also the realization that Autumn is right around the corner.

forgot to add N9 with stock camera. Cropped with stock gallery editor.

I think we all needed our time this time

This is a picture of quality time with my family on this classic carousel from the old times.
