The Old Courthouse
Fayetteville, Arkansas

 

Clock: A machine for measuring time, indicating the hour and other divisions by means of hands moving on a dial plate. Its works are moved by a weight or a spring, and it is often so constructed as to tell the hour by the stroke of a hammer on a bell. It is not adapted, like the watch, to be carried on the person.

I am not sure why or how you watermarked this image with the text subject and location. I do like the composition and the execution, though the text makes it feel like a postcard.

i frequently use typography in my images because i like to

it’s not to watermark them as in a copyright watermark

it’s just part of my vision for the image

I like how you interpreted the image, like a vintage print.

I think my favourite part is the way the clouds seem to open up for the buildings and clock tower.

Clock towers are so European, Sherri, so when I see them in America, I smile. I wonder how old this one is?!

this one was built in 1905 to replace “Old Main” which was built in 1875

Splendid use of light to highlight the clock tower and facade!! Excellent PoV as well.

It all looks very still and calm, time standing still.

don’t you think the word ‘watch’ is kind of creep for an inanimate object? 🙂
i love this pic, the clock tower building reminds me of the court house in ‘My Cousin Vinny’

that would figure because that movie was filmed in Georgia

we are due west of Georgia so the builders would have built the same style they were accustomed to seeing and knowing how to build

I like the constrast between this church the hurt bell tower and the building which is next to it, as a big cube of sad stone

it’s not a church building, it’s a courthouse

the other buildings; which i agree to not be very pretty, are influenced by the structures of the western USA

Arkansas was called “the gateway to the west” when pioneers were traveling to California

the sky really has given focus to the clock tower. The image has a real feel of history.
