Quarter to Five at the Louvre


I came across this photo while I was doing some spring cleaning of my photo library. You may have seen a different photo of this installation in a previous post, but here is another take on time that I really like. It may be a stretch to call this "street photography," although I was actually outside when I took the photo. At the Louvre, a windowed passage looks into one of the Richelieu rooms. I was passing by and saw this very bored worker dangling her shoe from her toes while waiting for her shift to end. The clocks, frozen at 5:45 in this photo, seem to condemn her to an endless wait.
