The Human Sundial #ShadowshotSunday

 At the Storybook Garden in Binghamton, New York, there is a human sundial.

The concept is simple.  You stand on a grid of month named blocks on the block belonging to the month you are in and face a corner of the display.

(taken sometime in 2020)

Your shadow is supposed to point at a numbered block.  The number represents the time.  (there are two rows - the upper row is for standard time and the lower row is daylight saving time).

My spouse decided to test it out.  He stood on the block for October (today is October 1) around 1:53 pm.

It's hard to see but his head is touching the "2" block in the lower row.

It works!
