Street Clocks

I have a slight obsession with clocks and watches. One of my favorite things to shoot when traveling is street clocks. These are clocks that hang outside of shops or restaurants. Small towns tend to have a random clock on the sidewalk. I do not know where this tradition is from, but I love it!

Some of these clocks still work, even though the shops they once represented are long gone. Each of these clocks has its own personality and look. Feel free to share links to your own street clocks in the comments! 

Thanks for looking at my street / shop clocks. Prints are available of these and other clock images here – https://1-sharon-popek.pixels.com/collections/time
