Well, that's Christmas over and I hope it's been a good one for you!!
V1 and V2 were taken, with Shadow Saturday in mind, in early December whilst visiting the Strasbourg Christmas Market.
I was quite attracted to this rather sad looking cast bronze gargoyle attached to the wall close to the entrance of the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Strasbourg - whatever turns you on!!Smile
I think I like the crop in V1 better than V2 but decided to include both.
The view of the Cathedral in V3 was taken in April 2011.
Many thank for all clicks and comments on my 'Hope He's Been!!' upload - appreciated as always.SmileSmile
Have a good weekend.
Richard

An impressive set of images Richard, particularly the shot of the cathedral, such excellent perspective and architectural details. The griffin like gargoyle makes a good subject for shadow saturday, if it's rather melancholy expression is anything to go by, one could say it looks like a shadow of its former self!Blush

This has got to a contender for the best Saturday's Shadow on epz today, Richard..!
By far the most imaginative, too.
Strasbourg's Cathedral is certainly a magnificent structure.
