Gargoyles on Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament

Across the street from the gargoyles at Westminster Abbey in London, some gargoyles with a more whimsical feel line the Houses of Parliament.

I shot the photos below during a trip to the UK for my 30th birthday. I'd only recently switched to shooting with a digital camera. The color photos below are digital, and the two black & white photos at the end are scanned negatives.




  1. I adore your photos, Gigi! You know how we share our gargoyle love ;-)
    Have you photographed in the Chapel of the Chimes in Oakland? Some great stuff there.
    Thanks for posting these!

  2. Thanks Juliet and Supriya. You know, I haven't photographed the Chapel of the Chimes in Oakland, even though I've visited -- I must do that!

  3. I'm behind on checking out your blog, Gigi. I've been concentrating on getting two hives of honeybees installed on my back deck.

    Would you be willing to let me use the phto of the ram-horned gargoyle in my blog?

    and I'm glad you're putting your copyright note directly on the photos.

  4. Thanks for asking, Fran. Please feel free to use the ram-horned gargoyle on your blog. Glad you like him :)
