Omnes vulnerant, ultima necat
All (hours) wound, the last kills

I haven’t found a translation for the words found at the top of this sundial (diu s’ayudie) which was on one of the walls at Domaine Lavie, a villa just outside of Salies de Bearn in southern France.

The time was right if you take into account daylight savings!

Bermuda born so I occasionally get “rock fever” and have to travel – especially to France! Mostly use my Nikon D200, but also use a Sony Cybershot DSC T90 and a Lumix DMC-LX5 for quick shots.

    The inscription at the top may be an old form of Dios te ayude ([May] God help you). As for the inscription under the clock… all too true! God picture.

  • This shot was taken in the Basque area of southern France, so it may also be in that language. Thanks for your kind words – I appreciate it!
