Skywatch: The Sundial Observation Deck





This is the bottom view of the observation deck and tip of the hand (called gnomon) of the Sundial at Kota Baru Parahyangan in the West of Bandung. For those of you who did not regularly follow my blog, I have previously posted a photo and story about this sundial here.

For a more comprehensive information about sundials, you may want to read this wikipedia article.

This post is BANDUNG DAILY PHOTO's participation in the weekly Skywatch Friday meme. Please check out the link to see other participants' photos.

I didn't realize it was the same building. But in fact, it's a view from underneath !

That's magic how changing the angle you can have a complete different perspective as if you had a new subject, Eki. A great lesson of photography.
Perfect Sky to enhance the whole picture.
