London, England – Big Ben

In this picture we have the iconic “Big Ben” standing tall and proud at the Palace of Westminster – where the Parliament of the United Kingdom meets. Built between 1843 and 1858, this impressive clock still remains one of the largest clocks in the world. In today’s computer age the concept of telling time is often taken for granted, but what an impressive sight it must have been for an entire city population to maintain the pace of time without having a wrist watch or a cell phone to glance down at for a digital readout. In the past, people looked up to tell time; now we lower our head.
