Détails de la cour d'hier


When last April I had posted the whole view of the courtyard, VP of Livorno Daily Photo asked for a detail of the statue and sundial. Here they are. I have added a poll under the header, I'd appreciate your opinion!

Quand en avril dernier j'avais posté une vue générale de cette cour, VP de Livorno Daily Photo avait demandé des détails, que voici. J'ai ajouté un sondage sous le titre du blog, j'apprécierais votre avis !

Now there's an energy efficient clock.

Very nice. But...how the heck can you remember something someone asked last April????

Good grief, I can barely remember what happened an hour ago!

You're a genius!

Birdman said...

What an interesting sundial. I love to look at them

Bob Crowe said...

A sundial, then? I almost wouldn't know what to do with it. I tell time on an iPhone but it's not all charming.

Tash said...

Love the top shot... so simple and so effective. Almost quilt-like :)
RE you comment on the Mosty LA Co Quilt post - You amazing girl, quilting along with your other talents.

Very interesting. I do not believe I have ever seen a vertical sundial before.

I'm glad he asked because it's very interesting. I do like the numbers.

Virginia said...

Well the French have a way with sundials, just like everything else! I love this one. Thanks for both views.

Interesting clock. Love the sculpture!

Paula said...

Everything in Versailles seems to be elegant, what a lovely piece of work.

Olivier said...

pour l'instant ton sondage, c'est un resultat de vote digne de certain pays africain ;)))

Tracy said...

I never get tired of looking at the art in Europe. It's so beautiful and classic. Very hard to see much of that over here - especially where I live since history only goes back about 400 years.

Rob and Mandy said...

That's a very nice sundial!

VP said...

I was right asking for more: this is a curious and unusual sundial. I like how the hours are dropping just above the statue. The statue itself looks so natural and relaxed, even patient, as it should be for a 'part' of a sundial...
Thanks very much for these details!

James Mark said...

Belles photos, les deux. At first glance the figures on the sundial look like people in little groups.

J'aime bien les cadrans solaires mais je n'arrive jamais à lire l'heure dessus! :) la statue assise me plait bien, les pieds qui pendent dans le vide donnent une sensation d'abandon..

Sharon Creech said...

Love the softness of the colors and the beauty in the details!

Kaori said...

Francisca said...

I had to go look at the courtyard to see how these two details relate... so creative to see the hours dropping on the statue...

Paulie said...

oh yes, the closeups are wonderful!

Diane AZ said...

I love the carefree pose of the statue and the curious floating sundial numbers behind him! :D

Loree said...

Interesting detail, especially the sun dial.
