We often hear of time machines which

are designed to transport us back

or forward in time. 

These machines only exist in our minds,

novels and movies such as the

Back to the Future series.

Yet all round are…

…time measuring machines

Big ones on Bell Towers…

…much smaller versions to hag on a kitchen wall…

…and finally, Melbourne’s famous landmark

The Flinders Street Station clocks.

Let’s meet under the clocks

was an oft used phrase of

Melbournians and visitors alike.

A few decades ago the analogue clock faces

were going to be replaced by their digital cousins.

This caused much discontent in Melbourne

that a compromise was reached.

These analog faces are now digitally powered.

Southern Cross Railway Station,

and…

…Flinders Street Station where you…

meet under the clocks,

are both at the edge of Melbourne’s CBD.

However, at either station one can catch

the City Loop

(our underground – short as it may be),

leave the train at

Melbourne Central Station

and you will save a four block walk

from either station.

Don’t know why I haven’t thought

of that before today..  🙂

A Melbourne special spot is

the footbridge over the Yarra River.

The long sandstone building is…

Flinders Street Station where Melbournians

meet under the clocks.

The Twelve Apostles is one of my favourite spots,

which has unfortunately become too touristy for me.

 

 

 

 

Further west along the Great Ocean Road

is, Loch Ard Gorge.

 

 

At  sunrise only a few joggers, dog walkers

and photographers encroach on one’s space

at Geelong’s Griffin Gully Pier.
