I'm a Gargoyle, Get Me Outta Here

An anachronistically gothic touch for a church started in 1875 and completed at the beginning of the second world war in 1914. But thanks to this fact, these Sacré Coeur gargoyles are in much better condition than some of their cohorts on older Parisian edifices.

There are plenty of opportunities to take great shots but you have to be creative and think hard or it will just be a greyish sticking out thing against a similarly grey wall.

This shot is a combination of seeing a striking shadow across a stepped wall, and a strong treatment afterwards to really make the image jump out with a sinister gothic feel.
