C is for Clocks on ABC Wednesday

Huge clock on the wall of the Musee d'Orsay. This museum is on the site of a former train station; thus, the large clock.


Also at the Musee d' Orsay is this clock that can be seen from the inside and outside of the building. Funny enough, it is located right by the cafeteria.


This clock is located on the sidewalk leading to the famous Hotel Del Coronado.

Fantastic set of clocks! I collect photos of clocks myself. . . I almost used my clocks but decided to save them for a different letter.

The first is beautiful and the last a problematic welcome to that hotel if real time is unequal to checkin time

I'm not part of ABC Wednesday so i feel a bit of an intruder, but I just have to say how much I love the picture of the clock at the Musée d'Orsay. It's one of my favourite places. Somewhere, somewhere, I have a photo of the cafeteria showing the clock. I must see if I can root it out.

Its been years since I visited the Del. I must go back and see it with "blog" eyes.

Wonderful clocks!

AVCR8TEUR said...

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I really didn't realize I had so many clock pictures in my archives. I guess subconsciously, I am intrigued by clocks because the photos stop that moment in time.

Edmund (the explorer) Nesbitt said...

Exactly! Clocks show a moment intime.
Great stuff!

Orsay's clock had a familiar look to me... obviously !
Greetings from Paris.
