Canal level view of overhanging balcony along Venice, Italy, canal. Many details begin with carved gargoyle on canal level archway keystone and marble column capstones. Was surprised at the cracked and missing stucco sections on exterior walls which revealed the brick and stone with mortar construction.

"Learning to Fly" One of two gargoyle statues that sit atop the three story Iron Bird Lofts in the Mural District of Downtown Fresno. The sculptures have drawn both praise and criticism. I'm a fan.

Thinking of the cartoon series, "Gargoyles" and movie, "Hunchback of Notre Dame", this night shot made me think of gargoyles as living beings perched between heaven and earth to rescue mankind from itself. This was taken with a Sony Alpha58 DSLR, during a pre-cruise night walk near the University of Venice and Basilica Maria d' Salut, Basilica of Praise to Saint Mary, while trying to learn the capabilities of a new tech-toy. Found the in camera HDR process could produce interesting low light results.
