It’s All About the Timing

sundial.jpg

I love old Mallorcan farmhouses. This one must be over 220 years old if one can go by the sundial. And I am very partial to sundials. I wish I had one. I have always liked them. The art of constructing a sundial is called gnomonics.

If you compare the sun time shown on the sundial and the actual time recorded by my digital camera, please take into account that the sun does not really know about Daylight Savings Time, nor did the gnomonist in the year 1787, I suppose.

The photo was taken near the town of Felanitx, Mallorca. The date: August 4th, 2007. The time was 12:08:14.
