DP photo challenge: time

Fleeting time, passage of time, I’ve no time, quality time, quiet time, thinking time, me time, time out, slow time, quick time, tempus fugit – have you ever stopped to think how often expressions of time appear in our thoughts, feelings or spoken words?

Vienna has a famous clock too – the Hoher Markt Clock (Ankeruhr). A large gilded clock also known as the dancing clock, in Jugendstil style (the local version of Art Nouveau). The clock spans a small alley, the Bauernmarkt. It was commissioned by the insurance company Der Anker – hence its name – and was constructed in 1917 after a design by Franz Matsch. When the clock strikes 12 all the figures dance across the clock face
