    I Have A Few But They're Sore Of Scattered

    I've always liked them really, I remember buying a few around when I was 8 years old. I have two on an arch that I keep on a desk. I have another that's sort of a single statue. Then i have kind of a ram-head one I think. I actually lost track of a few of them.

    My First Gargoyle

    Being a French major in college, I was naturally exposed to the idea of gargoyles more than the average person.  LOL  When I took Art History, there was a whole section on Gothic cathedrals, with a subsection just on gargoyles in the course.  The first time I went...

    I am in the process of getting rid of stuff - these may be the last to go.    They  could  even  go out in   the  yard  !

    Little Servants

    I love gargoyles, too. My first was the sort of famous one from Notre Dam, the real thing, and the others are knockoffs such as a ledge seated skeleton with angel wings, and a CVS Halloween hybrid with wings and claws, among others including a sort of dog with wings. I pretend...

    I think photos capture a place in time that is unique and to never be seen again. As such I view each photo that I like as once of a kind and enjoy having it in my collection.
