SKYWATCH--A Gargoyle in Belgrade

This post is for Kim of Seattle Daily Photo, who back in April of 2008 posted a gargoyle for me that you can see right here. Well, I scoured Belgrade looking for a Balkan gargoyle, but had little luck until I stepped out on my terrace the other morning, and lo and behold, there he was....

It's actually an ex-pat gargoyle, purchased at Gargoyles Statuary in the U. District. I'd forgotten that he had been hanging out on my porch railing....

All kinds of fun for Skywatch Friday. Join by clicking here!

Very funny! But a gorgeous sunset!

That's too funny. Search all over and then find a gargoyle at home. But where else. ;-) Then to back it with fire. Nice job Bibi.

Gargoyle on your terrace eh? Great shot. I've never seen a skywatch photo with a gargoyle before.

Spectacular sunrise, Bibi! And you have your very own gargoyle? Wow—that is one terrace with a view!

Stunning feature in silhouette against the lovely colours of the sky!

He looks like a puzzle piece that has been cut out of the shot! I like it!

Outstanding, Bibi!

That's a really dramatic view, I never would have guessed it wasn't on the side of a chathedral. It almost looks like a lion!

What a lovely mood it all set. Colorful ~ shadowy ~ a bit mysterious.
