Photos taken in and around West Phoenix, AZ
Great find. I didn't remember this guy on this church. You've made me want to look for him the next time I'm up there.
I know right where this is. I've looked at those gargoyles many times and wondered why they were added to this old rock church.
Very nice. Good eye!
Potencial suicider if without wings!Great photo!
I have not seen gargoyles in Arizona. very good eye to capture this
That is a great find. Isn't there something of a gargoyles at the Orpheum downtown?
I love this guy--and on a church. Wonderful. MB
A face only a mother could love. It looks like he's trying to escape!
I thought the same thing when I first saw those faces. I like gargoyles though, where ever I find them.
Kathy, if you check out my other blog's posting "Flashes of Flagstaff", you'll see him sticking out from the side of the church. There's one on the other side too. I'm thinking they're rain spouts.
gargoyles are cool...and yes a bit odd for a church...i think...
Ha ha, kind of scary lookin! I've not encountered any gargoyles yet in AZ.
I read somewhere that gargoyles started out being displayed to protest against evil spirits, but who knows. =)That sure is BLUE BLUE sky!!!
There are some gargoyles very similar to this one on the First Baptist Church in Selma, Alabama.
Since my aunt sent me gargoyle bookends from Europe many years ago, I have been intrigued by them. Cool shot.
