Numerical analysis

A sandy beach, on a Friday before the schools had broken up for the holidays, taken in the early afternoon.

A shingle (pebbled) beach, taken on a Saturday in the early afternoon, during the school holidays.

It seems obvious that, numerically, people prefer sandy beaches.  I am perfectly happy with that distribution of numbers.  I like having a beach almost to myself.

A clock of course has a numerical basis, even if the numbers themselves are Roman.  This one wasn't numerically accurate though, because the photo was taken at 9:30 in the morning, in Pisa.

This magnificent astronomical clock in Prague must be based on numerical calculations....

... because it even has every day of the year marked on the lower face, the calendar.  However the one thing it doesn't tell, is the time of day.

Pay a visit to TNchick's site where you can find more interpretations of "numerical".

PS I'm still struggling with line spacing and sometimes other formatting disappearing when I switch from HTML to Compose mode in Blogger.  It makes posting very, very laborious.  Is nobody else having problems?

  2. Hi A. --

    Great takes with the beach (and yeah, I'm with the majority in preferring sandy beaches) and then there was the bonus of the clocks!

  3. oh, the beach--I miss it so...great take on numerical.

  4. It doesn't tell the time of day? Perhaps you are asking too much from a clock. It is a thing of beauty. :)

  5. wow unique entry for the all the photos..

    mine is up too..

    have a good weeknd

  6. I love the clocks... as for the beaches, a pebble beach like Brighton would be just fine and dandy for me.. I'd take a mat though!

  7. Nice contrast of the beaches.

    People here in our country prefer powder white sand beaches since the pebbled beaches are mostly for the (serous) divers :)

  8. superb captures for the theme!

  9. Great take on this weeks theme. Very unique clock. Thanks for stopping by.

  11. What a great post. I'm with ya on the sandy beaches.
