Well, well, well. It has been a while, hasn’t it?
Are you well?
Oh, I’m well too, thank you (that was me assuming you asked me the question in return.)
You didn’t? Well, I never!
Since it’s been an age since I did a ‘Wordless-or-Wordy-Wednesday-depending-on-my-mood’ type post, I thought it was about time!
I’m feeling wordless today, as luck would have it (yours I mean– we both know I could waffle on about utter nonsense for the longest span of time). Ergo, I give you a photograph (because, you know, a picture’s worth a thousand words or something), and an accompanying caption WITH a fun fact (because sometimes you need an extra 104 words):
Connecting two buildings in Vienna's oldest square, the Anker clock was designed by artist Franz von Matsch and constructed between 1911 and 1917. What's interesting about it is how it displays the time: over the course of 12 hours, twelve historical figures or pairs pass through, each with a Roman numeral over their heads (denoting the hour). The tip of the numeral plaque serves as the minute-hand. Pictured is Prinz (Prince) Eugen Von Savoyen at roughly 10.35. Cool, eh? If you're in Vienna, check out the clock at noon– there's music and a little parade-y thing with all the bronze figurines moving through.
