Even though I wasn't running late (I still had four minutes to catch the bus on the right) these girls were. I took lots of photos just like this one but with different people WALKING through the frame. I realised that what I needed, to give the clock some sort of meaning, was some people RUNNING through the frame, running late. Luckily these three girls ran down just before I had to run myself!
In an ideal world I would have moved back a little and zoomed in a little to reduce the gap between the clock and the walkway a little but as it was I was on my toes and backed up against a rail with a 4m drop on the other side so this was the best I could do. Apart from the obvious connection between the clock and the girls running I like the symmetry of the image (when I was setting up I made sure I was exactly in the middle of the clock and the walkway).
