Gargoyles. Grrrr.

Notre Dame came at the end of a long, long day, seeing art and tall, famous, triangular towers. We were walking along the Seine, with very sore feet, seriously considering giving up. However, with the aid of a cab, we made it, and I'm so glad we did. I've wanted to see Notre Dame for ages, and it didn't disappoint.


The inside was stunning...










...but I think I loved the gothic twistiness of the outside, crawling in gargoyles and buttresses, most of all.

 

Going through this pictures on my computer was the first chance I had to really zoom in on these pictures and see the detail. You could really believe that real little monsters had landed on the towers and turned to stone.

Or, at least, I could.


And as I'm watching Doctor Who as I put this post together, with some really rather horrible statues, it's freaking me out a little bit. Don't even blink! Or they might appear in your bedroom!




In non-creepy statue news, I can't believe I'm almost at 100 followers! I'm planning a giveaway to celebrate when I get to 100, so keep those eyes peeled (okay, that phrase always grossed me out).
