Summer time

The clock of Notre-Dame church to remind everyone that it's our turn to switch to summer time! Unlike a lot of other people, the time change doesn't affect me. What I do hate is "losing" a whole hour's worth of precious sleep!

L'horloge de l'église Notre-Dame pour rappeler à tout le monde qu'on dort une heure de moins cette nuit (snif) mais qu'il fera jour plus longtemps !

Et oui les jours rallongent, c'est bon signe, l'été approche ... :o)

J'vais faire comme si je n'avais rien lu et dormir une heure de plus.
Joli angle de prise.

Oh, I like this composition, CQ! And the color!
Excellent.

I'm surprised you're just now going to "summer time." We did that 2-3 weeks ago...

As I've gotten older, the more I think we ought to leave time alone. In fact, I like time less and less. I want more time, not less.

Are you confused?

I'll go away now.

@Jacob no I'm not confused and I do know what it feels like to get older and feel time is running away. As to why we always switch later than you do, I don't know! It's the same in October...

I love having daylight for one more hour. What I really ate is the other way round, shorter days are awful!
Great detail on this shot.

On the bright side, you'll get an extras hour in the fall.

It is a beautiful clock and just think in 6 months you will get a whole extra hour to sleep in. LOL MB

Give me back one hour of my life!:)

Beautiful shot!

I love this shot too. You really do stop time with your lens...
And thanks for your kind comments, not just on my blog, but where ever your CDPB travels take you. I'll visit a blog and there you'll be, like an old friend, sharing something thoughtful.

Love the fine detail you've captured in this great shot, Ciel - even the anti-bird needles on the ornament.
Timely indeed is your post. Fret not though, your "lost" hour shall return.

At least it's on a Sunday morning so there could be some time for sleeping anyhow.

Regarding which date to switch, I'm reminded of the old saying: "Standards are good. Everybody should have one." ;)

Beautiful clock! Time changes don't bother me either, but it must be a problem for many people as statistically there are more auto accidents on the Monday after the clocks are moved forward and back. I wonder why!

George Townboy said...

Love this! Clocks are so cool. The 'Spring ahead' was tough for me to get used to!

Juergen Kuehn said...

Superb image bild-up. Great to learn something about your sleeping habits ;)

Steffe said...

Nice detail there. Doesn't effect me either.

Frankie / Nick said...

Actually it is rumoured that this practice could be abandoned. It has not been specified just when though. We have an area that does not abide by the time change and appear to suffer no ill effects.
