Latinus Scriptus Deletus

It's bad enough having to write, let alone hand carve words in Latin - but when you make a mistake and have to sand it all off again, Well!

I assume that's what's happened here - hence the title! ;)

This inscription is in plain sight next to the main door of St Catherine's Chapel, yet I hadn't noticed it until now - maybe because of the angle of the sunlight, maybe because the surroundings are captivating in themselves, or maybe because I just need to open my eyes more!

I meddled with this shot a bit, first in Lightroom and then further yet in Silver Efex Pro 2. (I do love the "wet rocks" preset in that programme!)

I'm hoping it says something like "Beware of the dog"... (But I am well aware it doesn't!)

Thanks for looking

Great shot. Love the detail.

Beautiful capture, love the contrast between the wooden doors and the stone on the side.

As bad as I am at typing I am glad I don't have to carve in stone.
