Photography is coming back in a big way with smartphones now boasting high-quality cameras and Instagram being the medium of choice for many young people to share their own unique moments.

This clock face, located on the top floor of a world-famous gallery, has become a hotspot for the 'Insta generation' for its unparalleled views over the city but also its potential for profound time-related hashtags.

While some may argue that the Instagram generation makes a mockery of photography as a profession, those interested in the trade should perhaps visit the international fair of photography taking place just across the river from 9-12 November before taking a pop at capturing their own snap here.

It is also important to remember this coming month that as this clock strikes 11am on the 11th, this city, as well as many others accross the world, will stop for a solemn moment of commemoration and, as a national holiday, many public buildings will in fact be closed.

Congratulations to Ursula Cutts who had the correct answer for last month's competition. She correctly identified the Maras salt ponds as our 'good cause attraction', located not far from its more famous sibling, Machu Picchu, in Peru.

Your prize will be with you shortly.
