great find and capture!
It's mean, It's ugly, It's a great monochrome subject!
Is it a gargling gargoyle or justdecorative ?? I've always liked gargoyles.. a vanishing relic.
He is rather mean-looking, isn't he?
I like gargoyles but I'm not sure I'd want to live underneath one.
She's cool. I like to name things and I name her "Nora."
Very cool. The gargoyle of your dreams? ;)
Yes - but it is a Dragon... there is someone I must tell.
Greetings Daryl: We're Monochrome neighbors. Love this beastlike creature staring us down on this Monochrome shot!
I love gargoyles! And there are so many in NYC! Nice capture.
I loves me some gargoyles. Nice. :)
That's not a gargoyle. It's me, in the morning, before I've had my coffee.
May want to place a call to The Ghostbusters.
I love your gargoyles. We don't grow them around here, but they seem to do very well in your city. I wonder why they're always so mean looking...wikipedia mentioned something about them warding off evil spirits. They're fascinating.
Love him. All gargoyles are male, right?
Very dramatic effect. Contrasts well with the colourful header!
I love gargoyles! That's a great shot, Daryl. I gotta come to New York some day and visit (never been). You are a wonderful ambassador for the city!
Fantastic and beautiful shot !!Unseen Rajasthan
Very cool. Gotta love the photo ops in NYC. BTW, my email is davecory2(at)gmail(dot)com. I've elected not to put it in my Google profile and risk getting more spam than I already do. Since your blog seems to be visited by relatively harmless wackos like myself, I'll risk giving my address here.
gargoyles are totally awesome!<><
Love this. It really messes with one's perspective. The lower left corner keeps changing almost like one of those BW photos where you see one thing when you look at the white and another when you focus on the black. I love the repeated angles and lines and the flatness of the background. Reminds me of Escher. The gargoyle makes it even more surreal.
I hope he stays on the roof... :-)
I love thee on our old English churches. Lincoln cathedral has some very good ones.
Fascinating! Great capture.
Is it Ghostbusters where all the gargoyles on the buildings come alive? Whatever movie it is, I thought of that. Left you a little award on my blog...
I was going to say Dragon...lolI have seen too many horror films my imagination can run wild...
Daryl!!I'm stunned..Why the heck haven't we got gargoyles around were I live?Life's a bitch ;)Brilliant shot!
We are big gargoyle fans in this house. That is a great photo. I am sure MM and MG will appreciate it as well...
Crazy..but I really like these..I think your captures of them and work is just amazing-thanks
It is rather ugly. Used as a drain spout, right?Good eye, Daryl; again! And that camera of yours must have a darn good zoom lens!Have a wonderful day. It's still hotter than hell here!
I love all the old gargoyle's.
Wouldn't want to have to walk around on that pitched roof though visiting withe the gargoyles might be interesting...
That's an interesting shot Daryl :)
After a Columbus Day Harry Potter movie marathon with my daughter, this guy seems like a regular part of the family!
It is really amazing how many gargoyles are there in the New World :-). Yes, mean and ugly --- I love them ;-)
I think I should do Monochrome Monday. i think my friend Snapper does it from Gabriola. Of course my problem is always trying to remember to do these. I've really pooped out on Two Things Challenge. I'm hopeless.
I love gargoyles. Great capture. Am so glad you shared this NYC image. Thanks.
As long as it stays up there I am OK with it. I had to laugh at your comment as I did all those tricks too. I call that the Long Island girls diet:)Joyce
Great capture, Daryl :)
They are such ugly things! But enchanting in their own way.And the kittens above - 48??!?Good job there's a big Pond between me and them. ;0)
The Gargoyle monochrome is a perfect post in time for the impending Halloween holiday.& those poor homeless kittens, how sad is that? so sweet of you to post this Daryl!
Perfect monochrome Monday subject! I love gargoyles, in a creepy, scary kind of way!
You know, this is so weird. I was just wondering when you were going to show some of the many NYC gargoyles. And, here you are...And, if I could adopt one or two of those baby kitties, I'd do it in a red hot second!
Great shot. I think it's puff the magic dragon living on a roof.
very distinctive shot!
At first I thought - Paris - then I realized NY - very cool!
Looks majestic yet with a slight touch of spookiness :P
Gargoyles give me the creeps! But, that bottle fet kitty is too cute!
A friend once gave my son a book about Oxford gargoyles. They're so imponent and cool! Loved this one.
There is a dramatic feeling in the picture. Great shot.
the image is great, but I don´t really like these tings.
There is a house we pass frequently here where there is quite large, plastic gargoyle guarding the driveway - someone painted its fangs bright red. It's hilarious! A little genuine than your photograph's I would say. ;-)
I wish I could help those kitties.
Great photo & poem
☼¨`*•.♥AWESOME SHOT♥.•*¨`☼Spooky but I love it!Have a Lovely♥Day!~Rocío a.k.a."Mamí♥Picture"
Awesome creepy and very ghoul. omg i'm a harmless imponent wacko. I love it here. xoxo
Perfect for black and white and for Halloween too. I love the angle. It adds to the strangeness of the subject.
Perfect photo. Nice angle.
Excellent shot! And perfect for the season too.
