Time x Square

Only one more chance to join in with December squares hosted by the lovely Becky. The photos don’t necessarily have to be of a timepiece, but are open to interpretation to reflect time in some way, or sayings such as ‘the passing of time’, ‘a stitch in time’, or ‘time running away from you’.

Day 30: The Cooke Clock in Much Wenlock

The small clock tower, located in the Square, was erected by Mayor Thomas Cooke to commemorate The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria on 20 June 1897.

Time for another square month hosted by the lovely Becky. The photos don’t necessarily have to be of a timepiece, but are open to interpretation to reflect time in some way, or sayings such as ‘the passing of time’, ‘a stitch in time’, or time running away from you.

Day 18: Iconic Projected Clock

In 1683, the Guildhall in Guildford, Surrey was refurbished, which included the addition of a council chamber, a balcony over the street and a bell turret. The clock is supposed to have been presented to the Council by a London clockmaker, John Aylward, who presented the projecting clock to the Corporation of Guildford in return for freedom to trade in the borough.

Remaining in Prague for Day Two and two images of the marvellous Daliesque-like melting clocks. Time pouring away? Time slipping through your fingers?

Personally I love the little poached egg clock in the window and regret that I didn’t buy it at the time.

The Persistence of Memory: The iconography may refer to a dream that Dalí himself had experienced, and the clocks may symbolise the passing of time as one experiences it in sleep or the persistence of time in the eyes of the dreamer. Wikipedia

March Square | Circles

For my penultimate March Square here is a photo of my very large wall clock.  Time is almost over for the very interesting challenge hosted by  Becky (“A life of a 40 something”). I hope she and you have enjoyed my dips into the archives this month. And now it is almost time for a rest I think.
