Sundial

About 30 years ago, when the architect was designing a commercial building, he learned that some transformation was going to happen in an urban uplift on the region. This way, the sidewalk in front of that building was going to enlarge and he took advantage of that designing also a sundial as an “urban courtesy” to the town. This way, we got a beautiful sculpture that became a symbol of the neighborhood and of the town. I wanted to photograph it for some time, but repeatedly as I passed by, the sun hid himself over the clouds. Finally I got a visible demonstration of its efficiency.

Mais ou menos 30 anos atrás, quando o arquiteto estava projetando um edifício comercial, ele soube que algumas transformações iam acontecer numa reforma urbana na região. Desse modo, o passeio na frente do prédio ia ser alargado e ele aproveitou e desenhou um relógio de sol na frente do prédio como uma gentileza urbana para a cidade. Desse modo, ganhamos uma bela escultura que virou um símbolo do bairro e da cidade. Há algum tempo que desejava fotografá-lo, mas toda vez que passava ali o sol se escondia atrás das nuvens. Finalmente consegui uma demonstração visível da sua eficiência.
