This week’s WP Photo Challenge is Time.


This is my favourite clock, the Corpus Clock outside  Corpus Christi Collage Library, Cambridge – time is shown by a series of flashing lights. It is mesmerizing – beautiful, disturbing, clever.  The creature is a Chronophage – a time eater.

Each moment of life

Experienced, vanishes,

Making memories.



Endurance of memory

This weekend’s WP Photo Challenge is Endurance.

Traitors’ Gate was the gate through which traitors were brought into  the Tower of London via the Thames.  Today there is a memorial on Tower Green, close to the execution site within the Tower where those of high rank were executed out of site of the crowds.

The inscription reads :

‘Gentle visitor pause awhile : where you stand death cut away the light of many days : here jewelled names were broken from the vivid thread of life : may they rest in peace while we walk the generations around their strife and courage : under there restless skies’. Brian Catling


Textures of Burghley

This weekend’s WP Photo challenge is Texture.

These are just a few of the textures we experienced last weekend during a sunny trip to Burghley House Gardens.  Well worth a visit or two!



Bronze Age Relics

This week’s WP Photo Challenge is Relic.


These excavated timbers are  relics of a Bronze Age causeway, thought to have been about a kilometre long, built across the Fens between 1350 & 850 BC.


On the wall at the back of this picture is an artists impression of what the causeway might have looked like.  The blue sprinklers keep the timbers moist to prevent further deterioration.

You can visit the causeway and the Bronze Age log boats which are currently being preserved at Flag Fen in Peterborough.  A fascinating day out in a remarkably peaceful spot.  Well worth a visit!
