Odd shots in Monochrome!


A clock strung among the bells! Odd! Does it signify the toll of time?! 
This is Ghanteshwar or Lord of the Bells, a temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman (monkey God). This is in Khar, a suburb of Mumbai. Devotees donate a bell to the temple as and when their wishes are fulfilled. Wonder if the clock was donated by some devotee who was granted time?!

  6. At first I thought some of the bells were bead. The clock adds interest and certainly makes me wonder why it is there. I like the shot a great deal. Carver's Photoblog

  7. Another fascinating shot! I'll bet the bells make a lovely sound. And who knows, maybe the alarm clock chimes in once a day...!

  9. Perhaps it means time is a wasting and they want their wish NOW. Or maybe their answer to prayer for their wishes is more time or their time ahs run out? Whatever the significance, it is a fantastic odd shot.

    Come and see mine.

  11. The bells are odd in their own right as a photographic composition. The clock just adds. I would like to see the bells in their natural color as well.

  17. Maybe the clock was donated by someone wondering what was taking so long?

    Excellent photo in any case. And I'd have to agree, that it wouldn't have been nearly as interesting in color.
