I prefer reading time on analogue clocks over the new digital ones. They are not only stylish but they also give a relaxing effect. The sound of the pendulum swinging from left to right and the tic toc sound somehow reminds me of the older days when people relied so much on their watches, since they did not have mobile phones yet.
I told my partner that I want a pendulum clock someday when we already have a house. I also told him that I want a striking clock (grandfather clock), the one that makes a gong-ish sound. But he does not want it because for him it makes a lot of sound. We’ll see, I might challenge him in a pool game and if I win I am going to buy the most beautiful striking clock that I could find in the antique shops.
Anyway, this is my take on last Friday’s The Daily Post photo challenge, time. The invention of clock is one of the greatest breakthrough in the human history. Without clocks, we would still be living without internet, mobile phones and almost all of gadgets that we have today.
