DP Challenge – Atop

The Daily Post at WordPress has a weekly challenge and this week’s is “Atop”. While browsing my archives and choosing things that are on top of tall things, I started to see a pattern that I thought would make a good theme. Clock towers! You will often see clocks fixed onto tall towers and places. It might be a building, a church tower/steeple, a freestanding clock tower. We in Halifax have a Town Clock high on Citadel Hill that was built so that the soldiers in the garrison would know the time and not be late reporting for duty. I don’t have a good photo of the town clock at hand

Here are some of my clock tower photos!
