Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

letters

I think this gravestone is interesting not only because of the two letter styles for “s”  and the way letters are squashed in near the edges of the stone but also the little letters, “th” which are carved before the “8” that they relate to. It wouldn’t be possible to read it that way.

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”

  1. Love it. I was actually trying to find a pic of a gravestone for this challenge… Took a pic of one where it said the person had died before they were born. 😀

    Sadly, got no idea when I took it, so wasn’t able to find it. I’ll have to remember to take a new pic next time I go to the little cemetery.

    1. It did occur to me that maybe the person who chipped the inscription didn’t actually read, I think that would have been quite common at that time.Thanks for commenting.

So, what do you think?
