The World Clock Project is a website that displays the current time (in your time zone) using photos of clocks shot around the globe. They're always looking for more shots to fill the empty time-slots and anyone can contribute images (preferably) of public clocks. Submit either using Flickr or email (methods described below).

The brainchild of Shawn Liu and Danny Wen, two New York-based members of the digirati, they say, "We find it intriguing to see a picture of a clock that is located thousands of miles away, but one which tells us the exact time of where we are right now. So we've set out to collect as many pictures of clocks as possible from as many different people as possible from around the world. Our goal is to gather enough pictures to account for all the minutes of the day. Upon accomplishing that, we will create a "digital picture clock" for the community."

Email your clock photos to clocks [at] worldclockproject [dot] org or, if you're already a Flickr user, join them on the World Clock Project Flickr group. See more detailed instructions on their site.
