Tick tock

Clock face.    Fuji F10
9th October 2014

By reception in the hotel, there is a rather splendid grandfather clock.   It was a tad to dark to capture a decent picture of the swinging pendulum, so I went for the dial instead.

There is something satisfying about the rhythmic tick and clunk that large mechanical clocks make, however I am glad there is not one in my room as the ticking would drive me nuts overnight.

I remember as a kid lying awake some nights as the ticking on my mechanical alarm clock seemed to get louder and louder as the hours grew smaller.

Although not as pretty, the digital age has however made time 'quieter'.
