I love gargoyles. I always remember those mythological creatures turned into stone.

I have been looking and seeing so much more since I started taking pictures. I woud love to look up and be rewarded with a gargoyle to photograph. This is an excellent picture.

~Just me again~ said...

I find those creepy too, but good catch.

John said...

Well spotted; as you say, always look up, but don't forget, keep turning round and looking where you've been. Often that will give a shot you would not have noticed.

Carver said...

What a great shot. I'm glad you looked up.

Martha (Menagerie) said...

Great shot - especially so close to spooky Halloween!

Dagrun said...

Look up, indeed. I guess there's a lot to look at from the top of a mall.

Well, the tongue bit makes it more comical than creepy (for me). I doubt if he is having any deep thoughts on the nature of things. But I could be mistaken. Nice capture, Elizabeth.

Look up, exactly! SO many people miss things because they are always looking down!

Great picture!

You've mastered the art of seeing. It's a key skill for photography.

Disturbing and humorous at the same time.
