I'm not trying to make any kind of political
statement with this shot. (Besides, I'm a
New Yorker—where do you think I stand?)
The original clock was installed in Times Square
back in 1989 and this improved version was moved
here to 44th St. in 2004. By the way, from Sept. 2000
to July 2002, the clock was dark because the debt
went down and it wasn't designed to run backward.

[It's Ruby Tuesday. To see more, go here.]


  1. Hard to comment on something like this...

  2. Interesting, but I think it would be depressing to see it too often!

  3. It wasn't designed to go backwards? Created by a glass half-empty person, perhaps... or some might say a realist. I think I'd have to avert my gaze if I was walking past this often!

  4. Oh, great capture anyway. Happy RT2.

    Mine's here.

  5. If the Rs did what they are asked to do to help the job situation, the economy would turn around and these numbers would have to work backwards! Why do we shy away from saying what makes sense, I wonder?

  6. My country (Indonesia) is still in huge foreign debt.
    Great find and shot!
