    Your watch in famous places

    At some point I took a picture of my watch in front of a famous building, the Taj Mahal in India. From that point on, whenever I'm in front of some iconic place, I try to take a shot with it.
    I almost always take my AlphaUSA milsub watch on my travels, as it is cheap, robust and waterproof. So that one almost exclusively stars in the pics.


    Taj Mahal, Agra, India


    Sagrada Familia, Barcelona


    Astronomical Clock, Prague


    Pisa, Italia


    Eiffel Tower, Paris


    Colloseum, Rome

    Anyone of you with the same addiction wants to share?

    Photoshopped ... Only joking

    I tried last year to do something similar (but not a famous place,it was a water fall), but A: I found it tricky to get both in shot, and B: the camera struggled too..

    Oh .....and C: I felt I looked a bit of a fool doing it

    Now this is a game I'll enjoy!

    So just to get a paw in the door:



    The Dome of the Rock, third most holy site in Islam, from which Mohammed (PBUH) actually really ascended to Heaven on a flying horse, taken from within the Noble Sanctuary with the sort of careful respect that is so important in these troubled times. The watch is my long suffering Omega SMP so what looks like a lack of focus is merely wear and tear.

    Was he wearing trousers? Seems to be a rarity.
