The Gargoyle Watches Over Paris

High atop of the great cathedral of Notre Dame, half-man/half-beast Medieval monsters are perched above the city of Paris.  Carved out of stone, these creatures have watched over Paris for over 800 years.   I created this image in July 2013 after climbing 422 spiraling steps in the claustrophobic bell tower… but the magnificent view was worth it!
