Emphasising change in 1 hour

Here I have just taken the middle section of the photograph from each 5 minute shot and put them next to each other to emphasise the change that occurred in the hour by looking at how it directly affected the same area.

I quite like this as an image in itself but it is really useful for seeing how the change in time does change the things around them. The gradual change from sunlight to shade is shown effectively here by the shadows creeping up on the tree, you can see it go right up until even the branches at the top are covered. You can also see the food truck just behind the tree start packing up and then leave by the middle point.

The change here is just as apparent as it was in the original image, the frequent change in the weather caused the sun to be shut out by clouds every now and then. This piece shows how time effects an area but not in the linear way that the above photo does, instead this one shows how things can change and then revert back to how it was, more of a cyclical view of time. 

I am starting to think of natures time and urban time as two separate ideas of time, for example natures time is to me a cycle, you have the seasons that come around and happen again each year, the moon cycle, the circle of life and also the fact that trees grow outwards and you get the circles or rings that show haw many years old they are. Then on the other hand you have urban time, a linear adaptation of time with its idea that 'time is money', time costs you, you don't get time back and you will never have enough of it. It is a very immediate view of the now and of the present without a care for the future or the past, it is a single track that can only lead to one thing, an inevitable end. A cycle has a much more positive view of time, one that comes around again and again, it has a structure, a reliability and a constant reoccurrence.
