Sundials are ancient timepieces used before mechanical clocks. They marks time by the position of the sun.This lovely sundial is from the side of a church in Gourdon France. Sundials are popular in Provence. I saw them in many villages.
If you look closely at this sundial, you'll noticed something strange. The roman numerials do not go back to 1 after 12. Have they redone this sundial for European time? XIII, XIV, XV?
This is my first week playing PhotoHunt. I first saw it over on Leslie's Kaleidoscope blog. I've also seen Girasoli and Maria playing along. It looks like a lot of fun. If you are interested, just click on the PhotoHunt link and hunt along with us.
