Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt - Time

Photo Hunt 33: Time

Theme: Time | Join the Photo Hunt | View Blogroll | Visit participants.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

When I'm strolling the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park and I see see these tall massive granite markers marking significant points in Tennessee's history, I think of Pink Floyd's song "Time" from the album Dark Side of the Moon.

Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

The Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park is located in the shadow of the State Capitol in downtown Nashville. The 19-acre park is designed to complement the Tennessee Capitol Building, give visitors a taste of Tennessee's history and natural wonders, and to serve as a lasting monument to Tennessee's Bicentennial celebration.


I joined the Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt hosted by TN Chick. You too can play: Join the Photo Hunt There's a different theme every Saturday, and it's a lot of fun visiting the community of participants.

Great choice: it's so interesting that your city has such beautiful & meaningful markers (Not to mention organized, Boston's Freedom Trail is all over the damn place!).

Have a wonderful week!

This makes me think of the monolith in 2001: A Space Odyssey. They are beautiful reminders of history, though. Thank you for sharing.
