"time it was, and what a time it was, it was

a time of innocence,
a time of confidences.
long ago it must be,
i have a photograph,
preserve your memories;
they're all that's left you."
-bookends, p. simon, 1968

I like this perspective on theme day. well done. and, we are glad to be back from Easter Island. it was beautiful. Now we are playing catch up.

Wonderful representation of time! These young ones are living with a much slower paced time than us older folks. The time it will take to get to Christmas will seem like forever to them, for us it will pass in blink of the eye.

Thanks for linking our time theme to photographs and memory and existence. These are sweet shots. I appreciated the Simon lyrics, too.'

Oh, I do love that song. What a sweet way to accompany the music in my head. Lovely shots! And maybe the most creative entry for today's theme I've seen so far.

What sweet, sweet faces... and accompanied by the lyrics of one of my favorite songs. Perfect.

Jacob said...

Super shots, BC. And yes, I think there is something to the notion that youth can be a time of innocence...

And perhaps it is also true that the time of our youth was a more innocent time than now...not sure, though.

The good old days were sometimes great and sometimes not so great.

Let's always remember the good times.

Fantastic.

My idea (which I had a while back and had forgotten until tonight when it's now way too late) was another Simon and Garfunkel song: 'time time time and see what's become of me, while I look around for my possibilities, I was so hard to please..."

One of my favourites. At least you will know what my time post was meant to be.
