This weeks challenge from Sunday Stills is Time. Time flies. Time stands still. Time passes. I have been spending time the past two weeks learning about things from a long time ago. Hundreds of years ago things were different . Horses wore armour and went into battles.
The Tower of London was begun by William the Conqueror in 1075. I stood in an office in the Tower and looking out the window I could see the modern creation of Renzo Piano, The Shard. Time passes. Things change.
At Windsor Castle I looked out of a window, across a courtyard to the Long Walk. Last May after the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle they came up the long walk in a horse drawn carriage with crowds lining the sides of the road. The original castle was built in the 11th Century and is the longest occupied castle in Europe. Time passes.
For thousands of years the sun has gone down on the Thames river. The buildings on the banks of the river may change but the river runs on.The Thames is a tidal river and the tide comes in and goes out. Time after time after time.
