I didn’t realize the metaphor potential in this shot of flower petals dropping until I noticed the clock in the background when I was framing up the compostion in my viewfinder. I guess I could have gone the Steve Miller Band route rather than the soap opera route for the title: “Time keeps on slippin‘, slippin’, slippin’ into the future.”

This would have been a more surprising encounter for me if I didn’t know the Comic Con convention was going on in the building behind these two. (And a more curious POTD experience for you if I hadn’t mentioned that!)
