I'm so glad to see this community exists. :) I posted a few pictures of a couple of Notre Dame's gargoyles that I took on my trip to Paris in 1998. The pictures weren't photographed and scanned well but I hope you enjoy them.

Hello, I just joined recently... I've managed to cobble together a few gargoyle photos, which I've put in a collection here. The piccies include one recently discovered in a friend's back garden, one on a church and a couple of timber gargoyles. Unfortunatley the few on the priory gatehouse have eroded over time, but still...

The gargoyles trumpet Paris to me
when it rains out of their mouths
For centuries the same tremulous
petrified sepulchre cries
all into the Seine's narrow ear
It's the way they're placed
Outstretched gargy necks
screammouthed haunched pensivity
blasting golden era echoes from cathedral nests
as though avenging I imagine speechless Quasimodos
My ear is unlike the ear of the Seine
In my ear more resounded unsepulchre birds
loom the sphere the pinioned dome that is mine
this dream frontier the brief flight the zoomed utterance
that is mine to hear
O I don't know what to think when they sit
like spies with no clothes with no real eyes
watching me in the rain gushing storms like a defiance
They too would like raincoats
or something I don't know yet enough to know
their image false their purpose contagious counterfeit
I cannot feel that demondrains benefit the houses of God
on a rainy day forbidding or decreeing nourishment for
the river's diet

What a great idea, though rather specific. The layout is lovely too. Haven't got any pictures myself, but I'll tune in to soak up the ambience. Bring on the Green Men!

Came here from arch_history, by the way.
