Gargoyle


I found this one sitting on a gatepost, guarding a home in Scottsdale.  He's a little weathered but still on duty.

This is certainly unusual for houses in Scottsdale, or anywhere, for that matter.

Love the composition, Sharon.

It's unusual to see these guys on newer architecture. I think he's pretty neat.

I wouldn't mess with that house if I were you, Sharon. Black and white is a good choice for this photo.

That's pretty funny. It would scare me in the middle of the night! Reminds me of the gargoyles in Paris.

I was glad to hear of your petition signing! The less of the "signs" the better!

That would keep me out! I like the effect you put on this shot. Just right.

I take it he likes to sunbathe ;)

He'll keep that place safe!

Looks like one of those mean ones.

Gargoyles are not very cheerful "guys" but they are very interesting to look at like this one!
Rather unusual to find one on such a post in Scottsdale.
