|'A clock with a message'.|
I discovered this interesting clock on the side of the office building for the Cremyll ferry.
If you look carefully, you can see two messages:-
"Dost thou love life, then do not squander time."
and,"Time and Tide tarry for none."
I wish that I had seen this clock earlier in the year, it would have been appropriate for a new year resolution!
The date of the clock is 1885; you can see the numbers in each corner.
It seems to be withstanding the weather very well, I think.
Thanks for looking.

Very well seen, and nicely captured.
Good exposure and colors, not so good POV (deformations).
Truly speaking, the framing is too tight for the subject, as inclusion of the full shadow of the clock might have enhanced the overall appeal of the picture IMHO!
The light and exposure are delicately handled and clarity is nice.
Good show of color contrast and bricks adds symmetry into the scene too.
Thanks for an informative note.
Thanks and regards,

"Time And Tide Wait For No Man"...thats what my dad used to tell me.
What a lovely clock you noticed and with so much on it to see. I hope it keeps good time. So good to see it even has a few rows of roofing tiles to keep it snug, well seen and taken Jean TFS
A lovely clock Jean with an excellent message for us all. TFS
