Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue

Peace Tower and its clock architecturally relate to each other.


Dialogue or conversation with another is as old as mankind certainly here on Earth perhaps, going back to the Garden of Eden, when the Almighty created everything. As we all know an exchange between God and humans was followed by another of counter opinions by the serpent and the humans and the rest is history.

A recent bus trip to Ottawa provided me an opportunity to capture these images which show a different type of dialogue, one of architecture. Here parts are brought together and speak as a marvel of Canadian architectural history and also of Canadian heritage. The Peace Tower is the focal point in Ottawa with its giant Gothic style mechanical clocks that adorn it creating a unique dialogue. The Tower just would not be the same without its clocks and they would be just several large, old, out-of-fashion, mechanical clocks without a purpose.
