Time x Square

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 such as the passing of time, or sayings such as a stitch in time, time running away from you.

Starting off with an obvious one on Day One is this famous Astronomical clock (Prague Orloj) in Prague’s Staroměstské nám. The clock was first installed in 1410, making it the third-oldest astronomical clock in the world and the oldest one still operating.

The 608-year-old clock, a must-see for many tourists with its hourly moving display of the 12 apostles and other figures, has been recently renovated taking nine months to fix previous badly done repairs.

To join in with the Squares challenge please visit Becky for instructions. Remember the only proper rule is that the photo must be SQUARE.

December Squares | Day One

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. I took some photos of that clock when I visited Prague. It is quite amazing to sit and watch the display of figures.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. I must confess to not actually seeing anything moving when we were watching it! Maybe I was looking at the wrong parts!

    1. I think it is still worth a visit. It was known as a stag and hen place when we went, but saw no obvious signs. September might be a nice time.
