Clocks & Watches - 18 picturesAdvanced Photoshop Contest
Past weekend was the time to reset the clocks again as Daylight Saving Time begins. Each year we lose an hour of sleep as we "Spring Forward" and turn the hands ahead one hour. Daylight Saving Time was instituted in the United States during World War I in order to save energy for war production by taking advantage of the later hours of daylight between April and October. Daylight Savings Time (DST) begins each year at 2:00 a.m. on the second Sunday in March in most of the United States and its territories. However there are some places that have not bought into this campaign: it is not observed in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands nor the state of Arizona except for the Navajo Indian Reservation, which does observe DST.
To celebrate resetting the clocks past weekend, design new clocks and watches (sundials, hourglass are OK too) from other things, or redesign existing clocks and watches (or sundials, hourglass) with some unusual elements.
