Time is one of the most precious things we have in life. None of us are guaranteed more time on Earth, and spending time is the ultimate opportunity cost. Any time you spend doing something, you forgo spending that time on other things. Thus, making the most of the time we are given is one of the keys to living a happy life.

That doesn’t mean that time can’t be wasted for a good reason, and it’s often said that wasted time that is enjoyed is not wasted time.

Time is a fun concept for photographers to play with, because it’s possible to express the passage (or stoppage) of time in a variety of ways. Photography itself is the ability to capture a moment in time, but just because it’s a single moment doesn’t mean that time can’t be advancing:
