SKYWATCH-7 BELLS BUT ONLY PUSH ONE

They ring pure, nothing stands in their way. Giving sound to the wind and carried far and wide. But when listening to the melody, ask not for whom they toll. Join other SKYWATCH Friday participants and enjoy your weekend!

  1. I love the line, "ask not for whom they toll". We have a counter clarillon in Canberra for whomever the bell tolls. Musicians go there to play symphonic ensembles. I'm honoured by your visit. Thanks.

  4. Lovely shot of the bells. Why is the bell there for? For decoration or is there a significant reason to put the bells there.

  9. That is a lovely tower. I am intrigued by the campaniles of that architectural era. Very nice. They seem small and grand all at once.

  10. What an elegant bell tower! Looks southwestern to me but I believe you are in Michigan (or Minnesota)at the moment. Hmmm.

  11. A very simple (meaning difficult) and very efficient composition - and I see that you know you Hemingway.

    PS Thank you for the comment - I was standing on a bridge.

  16. Thanks for your visits and comments, B Squared. They are always appreciated. This is a fine composition here. Why is it so many of us love the sound of bells?

  17. I hope the different bells produce a wind chime like melody instead of the regular monotone toll.

    Cool concept!!

  18. Is this the Kennedy thingy?

    I was going to say a lot more, but I forgot. I'm such a ding-a-ling!

  19. Wow, I've never seen or heard bells like that either. Great post.

  20. I enlarged - the bells in the tower are a pleasing pattern against the vertical and the blue sky. Bet they sound great when they ring out a melody.

  28. A most unusual bell tower. Is there a significance to the seven bells (diatonic scale?)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Who do they toll for? Not Hemingway, he borrowed it from Donne.

  30. RuneE is partially correct, but Clueless in Boston is absolutely accurate and correct.

    "Therefore, send not to know
    For whom the bell tolls,
    It tolls for thee."

    Love it when literature is included in a post or commentary. The photo is very arresting. So glad I backtracked to see the ones I missed. A bell tower such as this is certainly appealing. Would love to hear them ringing out!
