PhotoHunt: Time


Sundial in Gourdon France

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 . 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.

Yay!! Another PhotoHunt Slow Travel poster!! Annie is also participating.

I love your sundial photo! I think sundials are so cool. I have always been fascinated by all the sundials I have seen throughout Italy.

Perfect choice for this week's theme :)

Nice shot! Welcome to the Photo Hunt!

I'm delighted to see you joining in the fun! Love the picture and it's perfect for the theme. It is quite unusual - it looks like a hand fan.

What a cool clock!

Mine's up too :)

What a wonderful photo! I love that little statue in the window above...Father Time maybe?
