My new job is to take photographs of beautiful buildings. Sort of.
This beauty sits on the campus of the university I work at (running their digital channels) and it is the tallest freestanding clock tower in the world. There is some confusion over just how tall it actually is but it’s Grade 2 listed, and is modelled on the Torre del Mangia in Siena, Italy.
And students on campus believe that if you walk through the tower archway when it chimes, you will fail your degree.
These are the facts and interesting titbits I get to research. And I just love this shot because it shows just how tall it is with the backdrop of a stunning blue sky. What you can’t see underneath is the hustle and bustle of student life; books being carried, bikes being parked, chatter, footsteps, people lost in deep thought.
I love that buildings can give so much back – this one has been doing it for over a hundred years!

➤ Now go visit as many of the other entries as you can. Leave a comment, discover new blogs, discover new ways of taking photos and maybe share any tips you have.
➤ The Photo Gallery isn’t about taking technically brilliant photos. You can take them on your phone, your point and shoot or your fancy pants camera. It’s about having a passion for photos, wanting to better yourself and discovering what other bloggers are doing.
