This week’s MotD theme: Time After Time
Photographer, HobbiesTooMany, took this overhead photo of the Ingleside Terraces (Urbano) Sundial in San Francisco using a kite! Built in early 1900’s this 34′ wide sundial, still keeps time…except on cloudy days or during daylight savings time.
Along with the sundial being a mandala, so too are the four outer circles, and the large circle that surrounds the entire park-like area. The pathway creates a very interesting lotus petal-like design within the overall space. If you look closely at this photo, you’ll also notice that someone is standing halfway up the dial.
Inspiration for Today
HobbiesTooMany’s photo and the builders of the sundial both demonstrate how we can work with nature to create beautiful and functional (most of the time) works of art.
