High time.....!


I wish I'd waited and taken this shot an hour later! Where were you.. at ten past two, has a  much more poetic ring to it than where were you.. at ten past one :) The Scarborough Clock Tower was built to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the first European settlement here in WA and the 75th anniversary of Rotary International. It's a little utilitarian for my liking, but it does suit it's location and is an easily spotted rendezvous marker. In the background the top of the ampitheatre and on the horizon..that's  the Indian Ocean, nice! Click here to see other skies around the world. TGIF for sure! Happy day, take care and stay safe.....

  1. Interesting, Grace, Europeans in WA...
    Is the man on the second photo a guide who told you, that that's the Indian Ocean? ;-)

    P.S. Many thanks for your 400 nice comments on BDP!

  2. It was so nice to hear from you!
    Thank you for identifying the "Bell Tower".
    Music was my university major. I will need to spend more time there on my next visit.

  12. Is that a bit of 'yarn bombing' on the stairway? Have a good W/E.

  20. I know you are showing a clock, the sky and an amphitheatre but all I can see is the colour of the ocean!!

    Yes, well, sorry, you and Aimée will have to come back to V., won't you? :-)

  23. That colonial with the microphone does look a little lonely.

  25. Love the blue-green of the water. The clock doesn't turn me on, but maybe it's not time for that! :)

  26. That's a great shot! I always get distracted by the water, though--I should live near the ocean!

    Have a good weekend, Grace!
