"Gargoyles & Graffiti"chronicles architectural elements that I find interesting or unique in my travels. Gargoyles are my passion, but today graffiti (which I hate but am learning to love as it is everywhere) is as much a part of architecture as the gargoyles and decorative railings that thrill me.

first blog







Sarah & Liam
This is so scary, my first post in my first blog. Being of the baby boomer generation, I was comfortable with computers when they were IBM clones with PC DOS. My first computer, purchased through my professor at Florida Atlantic University, had Lotus 1-2-3 and Word Perfect and I blew the thing up in the first month of purchase in 1982. Luckily the computer came from the guy who built them for the university and also could fix them, so he had to reinstall my operating system. Back then before windows (the dinosaur age, I know) a basic knowledge of programming was helpful to use a computer. I was 27 years old and thought I had the world figured out. Little did I know that 28 years later, I would be grappling with setting up a blog about my travels and finding it oh so difficult. I am taking an online blog class to figure this out. (Thanks, Zora. Half of what you tell us seems like Greek to me - how fitting.) It will be the first computer class I have ever taken and I have been using personal computers half my life. (Wow, I just figured that out.)


I just took a trip from Barcelona to Dover for 10 days and it was amazing. With all the architectural gems I love finding along the way, I have decided to call my blog "Gargoyles & Graffiti," as today graffiti (which I hate but am trying to learn to love as it is everywhere) is as much a part of architecture as the gargoyles and decorative railings that thrill me. The photo above is of my niece and her beau, whom I met in Canterbury at the end of my trip.
