The writing`s on the wall..............

I have never been a fan of graffiti but today I changed my mind!! Visiting a local church I was shocked to see so much graffiti etched in to the stone around the altar. 

But then amongst the newer carvings I found these wonderful names etched in the stone with old dates too. 

So timeless and evocative that I had to run my fingers over the stones. I wonder who and why?

Will someone like me way in the future find today`s names as charming?

A la prochaine mes belles

  1. If you go into the Temple of Dendur at the Met in New York, you'll see that graffiti goes back even farther. There seems to be a primeval urge to say "I was here."
