Wind-up Baby Ben clock 52/24/2 #fp13 #wind, a photo by Hecuba's Story on Flickr.
The theme for my Flickr Friday photos this week is "Wind". One of the photos I took for this was of my old wind-up Baby Ben clock. It no longer works as the spring is broken. But I like to have it as a decorative piece and a reminder of my past.
Taking the photo really led me to reflect on the impact technology has on my use of time-keeping devices. Once I had a wind-up clock and a wind up watch that I religiously wound up every night. Now although I have a couple of (battery operated) watches which I wear occasionally as jewellery I really rely on my iPhone or other devices for timekeeping when I am out and about. In the house I have the time flashing at me in every room from devices, appliances and my desktop PC.
