Day 226 – Time Stands Still

16 Nov

It was rainy and miserable here today so I did not get out to take any photo so I am going to post another shot from earlier this week. I am still interested in capturing architecture from my area so this is keeping with that theme. The Colgate Clock is one of the biggest clocks in the world (a fact I rarely even think about) and while I am sure I have taken a photo or two from across the bridge when it is lit up, I have never gone down to the building to capture it up close. It really is a beautiful building and I am glad I took the time to actually go explore.

    Reminds me of the Allen Bradley clock, aka The Polish Moon, here. Love the brick color on the one by you. Ours is much duller in color…..Great shot.

        BTW, not mine. Just a very cool angle.

    This is very cool.

    I love the perspective, rarely do you see a clock from right below it.

    Nice shot, I particularly like the vividness of the color in both the brick and the sky.

    The contrast in this photo is amazing – the old brick work with the white pointing and decoration which is beautiful by the way – and then topped by this amazing modern looking clock! Very interesting shot –

    Oh wow that’s a cool clock! It reminds me of the one in Back to the Future! Loving your architecture shots… makes me want to look for cool buildings and such here! These pics of yours inspire more than you know 🙂

    WOW!! What a cool clock. I’d sure like to know what idiot replace that center window. Such a Beautiful building design, and they could not even follow up with a little cornis work or sills to match?

    This is a really cool photo!!! I wonder what the guy in the window was thinking….
