Old tombstone

Old tombstone

Went on a photo fieldtrip with Ken, the photographer
who works for The Argus. While in the graveyard at
Holy Trinity, Carlingford, I noticed these old inscriptions
on the back of a tombstone which dated back to the
18th century.

Nikon D40x
1/640s f/4.8 at 75.0mm iso200 full exif

other sizes: small medium large

A new take on an ancient art. Laine's right, these are a bit easier to interpret than the older ones.
