1996 Exactly Almost

The British Broadcasting Corporation marked the beginning of 1996 by broadcasting the prerecorded chimes of Big Ben. I started to make this photograph in the last milliseconds of 1995, but due to mechanical delays the shutter wasn't released until the following year. Unfortunately, I failed to note that my watch was five seconds fast, resulting in a photograph that failed to capture the intensity and excitement of the event.
