Ernest Hemingway in Paris in the 1920s. An expatriate learning to be an author while living with other members of the "lost generation."

His view of the city has not changed in decades. His eyes are fixed on the same scene so far away that nobody knows where.Interesting. I happened to see you at Kate's place and popped over to say, Hi.Stay warm.

:) What a wonderful close up of the little monster.
Hello, Nikon!I wish you a good end of 2007 and a good year of 2008.
Hello David, Thank you & happy holidays to you!
The gargoyle has become a strange concept in the present day. There they are, up there, adorning church roofs everywhere for purposes that mattered long before tourism was dreamed of. Now, there are masses of tourists staring up from the ground and without binoculars, or zoom lenses (which they all have, of course), the gargoyles' details can't be made out. No wonder this one looks so bored/tee'd off.And where's Charles Laughton?
Great shot Paul!Sorry for having taken so much time to come back here, but I will not tell you about my last weeks… The problem is that the coming ones don’t seem much nicer, at least up to January 14th, 2008…But let’s forget all that; I wish you a nice holiday and I’ll try to come back here to divert from less interesting tasks!Blogtrotter
Well Charles Laughton is getting into his makeup(or he's playing with his bells) - which is why the gargoyle is so bored - it takes FOREVER to do a hump :-)
Gargoyles are figures of fascination, aren't they? I want to thank you for your many visits and commentsto my blog this year. I hope that your holiday is joyous and that 2008 brings you health, happiness, and a very good life!!
Thank you Kate, my best wishes to you, too!
I wish you a Merry Xmas my friend. Let's hope 2008 will be the year.BTW... who's that Ame above? lol

Paris's most famous spitting gargoyle? What else do you NEED to add? ;)Have a happy holiday, Paul!
Sneaking away from our laden table (Christmas Eve dinner - an old European tradition) to wish you a Merry Christmas, Paul!(I'll speak to Santa about your single-rich-beautiful-girl requisition, but you must lower your standards, dear: she is more likely to quote Carrie from "Sex and the City" than Hemingway ;-))
