Black and White # 11 Clock Tower

Black and white photograph of a clock tower by susan sheldon nolen

I shot this leaning out the window of a car.  I love the ornateness of the Sheerness Clock Tower.  Off the end of those curved hooks in 1902 hung fabulous lamps. It was erected in honour of King Edward VII and Queen Alexander. The cost?  An amazing £360.00.  It’s believed to be the tallest clock tower in Kent!  But what a different world we live in now! Time is on our phones!  But I rather like looking up and seeing this old-fashioned way of making sure one is not late for tea!  No hiding from Father Time when the clock tower is on the go!

Black and White Week 11

About susan sheldon

I am an explorer. It's taken me awhile to realise this. But I love capturing bits of our wonderful world with my camera, travelling through time and history, always returning to write, or paint what I've discovered. I use my Leica and my iPhone to capture images, and with those images I try to hold on to a feeling, a moment in our busy lives. Sometimes those moments bring me into the past, others into the studio to paint, or back to the old typewriter to try to use words to capture what the camera has done for me already. One of my goals in my blog is to have a space to take a breath away from our frantic world. I hope you enjoy your time here. It’s such a privilege to have readers.
