Travel theme: Time

Seasons are changing and clocks are springing forward and falling back in the places around the globe that observe daylight savings time. With all this change afoot, I can’t help but think about the passing of time. Looking at past photographs from my travels I found quite a few clocks, from the iconic clock in the Main Concourse of Grand Central Terminal, New York …

and the trusted meeting spot under the Eason’s clock in Dublin

to the bright, modern clocks of downtown Seattle.

But there are plenty of other things that remind me of the passing of time, like lengthening shadows on brightly painted houses in Antigua, Guatemala …

or an abandoned record store in Asbury Park along the Jersey Shore …

and the faded glory of another time along the Coney Island boardwalk.

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

    A great theme and your photos are wonderful – especially the blue house in Guatemala. Here are a few of mine taken during a walk through an old – almost deserted village southern Italy…..
