I had seen an image similar to the one I created above online a long time ago, and I always wanted to try to create it while adding my own artistic touch.  After taking approximately two hundred up-close photographs of my eye and spending a long time overlaying the clock onto my iris, the image you see above was created.

I decided to entitle this photograph “Nostalgia” due to the figurative symbolism of having a literal clock within your eye.  Whenever you remember anything, you tend to watch scenes from your life over in your brain like a film.  Memories are time dependent, and I think this photograph is the epitome of reliving or reflecting on any memory.  I feel that this photograph has a strong emotional connotation, shown by the look in the eye, the focus on the clock, and even the time on the clock.

I am extremely happy with the end product of this project that required a decent amount of time and effort.  Next time you see anything inspirational or feel drawn to create an image that expresses emotion, take the time to do so. You will be very impressed with your results!
