An interesting hobby you have. I haven't scrolled through the blog yet but am wondering if you take photos of clocks all around the world too?

Isn't it fun learning about all the building styles in London and Europe? It makes such a difference to the concrete structures in Johannesburg and Durban.

I like this clock, there is something almost nautical about it but I guess that is because of the faded green background.
