I am sunk, then, Ginnie...beyond 21st Century, since the death of Jesus of Nazareth, I am clueless...
Ginnie Hart: A lot of people are clueless, Ray, so you're in good company! smile

Joli cadran solaire.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Martine.
I'd say 1:20pm...
Do I win??? smile

Great photo- a most interesting sun dial - I'm glad you kept the window in the shot, makes the comp I think!
Ginnie Hart: You win, I'm sure, Elizabeth. HA! Thank you.
i hope that it's not 1:15... i will have to go to bed now...
great find... love your treatment....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I think whatever guess you make may be right...because who can say otherwise???! HA! Thanks, Peter.
Already a quarter past one? So I am late then...Great capture Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: But where's the shadow when you need it??! Thanks, Richard.

This is beautiful, sundials are such a great invention. Great treatment of the picture. I noticed that 4 o'clock is IV as for clocks, like on churches, the 4 is IIII....
Ginnie Hart: I love sundials, MLMA, as you know. I still wonder how people told time by them, however! smile

1:15? The time is flying, it's now 8:28 h. Ootmarsum is a pictoresque, lovelly town!
Ginnie Hart: You're good if you can tell sundial time, Philine! smile And, yes, Ootmarsum is indeed lovely.

Might I be right that you also have a penchant for sun-dials, Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: You might be right indeed, Lisl. grin

Very pretty isn't it but as to how I tell the time with it..
Ginnie Hart: Someone will need to give us a lesson in sundialing, Chris!

I don't care what time it is today.. I've got the day off smile The day is my own! I'd say, though, that it's 1.18pm (it's not one 1.18am as it's too light for that smile ) I like the reflection in the window.
Ginnie Hart: Good for you to have the day off, as does Astrid every week. It makes for a nice weekend! Thanks, Alan.
I have enough trouble with a watch
Ginnie Hart: HA! Don't you wonder sometimes how we make it through the day! smile

quelle heure est-il ?
JP
Ginnie Hart: I thought you would tell me, JP! smile
I know!
It's time to get a new watch! wink
Ginnie Hart: HAHA! Maybe we should all go without watches/clocks/sundials and try to just live our lives according to how it feels. LOL.
I think it is 1pm because of the angle you are photographing it Ginnie. Weird though.
Ginnie Hart: I need to take a sundial course, Chad!!!
Without even using a clock, I know it is time to get ready for work.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good for you, Mary. Your internal clock works just fine.

I am getting old. I can't see the shadow of the pointer. Nice thing about the time they used these clocks, is that it was not possible to lay down curfew.

Overall, a great shot.
Ginnie Hart: I need to take a class in Sundialing, Louis, shadow or no shadow! grin Thanks.
Somehow or other we didn't worry about the time this morning and were late starters so this clock wouldn't have been any use to us for sure smile
Ginnie Hart: Isn't that a wonderful place to be, Brian, at this time of our lives!!! smile

Wonderful - aren't sundials amazing!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Anne. One of these days I need to take a crash course in how they work! smile
compo et traitement extra!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
I couldn't agree more with lots of the comments, ha ha! Thank goodness I have nowhere to go today!
Ginnie Hart: Lucky you, Robin, to stay put for awhile. HA! I'm so glad to know it happens from time to time. smile
I keep seeing ideas for my garden and house on your blog. Now if I just had the know-how to make them. I love this.
Ginnie Hart: Isn't that the truth, Michael! Thank you.
you know what, i am tempted to look under/behind the dial at the mechanism, Ginnie. an interesting find and a great shot
Ginnie Hart: I never even thought about that, Ayush, but now that you mention it.... HAHA.
I prefer to get lost in the lovely reflections in the window ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Not a bad idea, Cherry, especially if you can't tell sundial time! smile
