For our time is a very shadow that passeth away (Wisdom II.V) - reads the inscription on the magnificent Church clock at St. Mary's, in Rye, East Sussex. The two Quarter Boys that strike the clock every quarter hour are infact fibre-glass replicas of the originals that now reside inside the church.More pictures of Rye by Luc Hermans...
And it's also the oldest church turret clock in England built in 1560.
Very nicely composed telephoto shot, exposure is perfect
Great photo. I agree with the inscription, too, but why does time have to be in such a hurry?!
Great capture & focal point. Oops! The OT book of Wisdom was removed from the King James Bible. Surprised the inscription was not done away with in the 17th C.
