Imagine stepping into a virtual gallery, not filled with paintings or sculptures, but with clocks. Not just any clocks, mind you, but a carefully curated collection showcasing the diverse array of timepieces gracing Edinburgh's streets, buildings, and landmarks. Sunlight streams through virtual skylights, casting warm glows on the clock faces, each one with its own story to tell.

Grand Clock Faces:
The gallery opens with a grand entrance, featuring the iconic clock tower of the Waverley Station. Its four clock faces, adorned with intricate Victorian detailing, seem to hold the rhythm of the city's coming and goings. Nearby, the imposing clock face of the Scottish Parliament building stands tall, a symbol of authority and precision.

Hidden Gems:
As you delve deeper, the gallery takes you on a journey through Edinburgh's hidden nooks and crannies. A quaint sundial nestled in a quiet churchyard whispers tales of time's gentle passage. A quirky pub clock, adorned with a mischievous gargoyle, hints at the city's playful spirit. An antique grandfather clock, standing sentinel in a historic bookshop, exudes an air of timeless wisdom.

Modern Marvels:
The gallery doesn't shy away from contemporary marvels. The sleek, digital display of the National Museum of Scotland reflects the city's embrace of innovation. The dynamic time projection onto the facade of the Usher Hall pulsates with the vibrant energy of Edinburgh's cultural scene.

Interactive Touches:
But this isn't just a passive viewing experience. Touch a clock face, and hear the chime of a bygone era. Zoom in to admire the craftsmanship of a delicate pocket watch. Click on a map, and see the location of each clock, inviting you to embark on your own time-traveling adventure through the city streets.

A Celebration of Time:
As you leave the gallery, you carry with you not just a collection of images, but a newfound appreciation for Edinburgh's relationship with time. The city's clocks, in their grandness and humility, their precision and whimsy, tell a collective story – a story of history, culture, and the ever-flowing river of time that binds us all.

Ref: Clock watching, timeout in Edinburgh. Photography in times of downtime. The ticking timepiece, ticking and clicking, time is of the essence, not, however, only time will tell if I continue to run with this venture, I might wind it up early. Mulling around town marking time until something else comes along. Filling in time when I have some spare time on my hands seems like a good use of time. It’s not a race against time here, I’m just bending the schedule to document some moments of time. Watch this space, images will be posted when the time is right. Doing time killing time in Edinburgh. Clock clocking, photography, is what makes me tick!
