Thematic Photographic - Signs of the Times

We're back with "Thematic Photographic" - Carmi at the blog Written, Inc. presents a weekly themed photographic challenge. This week's theme is Signs of the Times. Check in and see who else contributes photos based on this idea.

A sign, indeed, but a sign that is timeless. An ancient language still says "Beware of Dog" on this chain-link gate in my neighborhood. This sign has been adapted from a mosaic image of a dog found in the ruins of Pompeii, from 100 BC.

The dog, I should tell you, hasn't lived there for years.

Maybe they would let you buy the sign? That is pretty cool!

Priceless. I've never seen one of these. Scary enough to keep folks out even without a dog to back up the threat!

That is a fantastic sign.
You truly do have a great eye.
