Saturday Snapshot: Home and Abroad

I was poking through my photos looking for inspiration for this week…and thought I’d do a couple of fun pairings of photos.

Stone LionThis stone lion lives a few blocks from me…

British Museum Lion…while this one lives at the British Museum in London.

GargoyleThis is a random little gargoyle statue on a porch in my neighborhood…

Notre Dame Gargoyles…and here are his more famous cousins.

    Interesting how similar the two lions look, though they are so far apart in distance. Good pairing!

    Great post with fun pairings. I hope to see both the British Museum lion and the Notre Dame gargoyles (upclose) later in the year.
