"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.

Gargoyle-Inspired Photographs by Stephen Crome

Cemetery at Glendalough by Stephen Crome
I love reading the posts by fellow travelers on Holland America Line fans Facebook page. I especially love the photos of Stephen Crome, and all the wonderful places he visits. His recent photos of Dublin include an area I knew nothing about until today. That is the Glendalough area that was founded in the 6th century AD by St. Kevin and became a monastic city.

More information on this wonderful place can be found here.

Another great photo by Stephen was taken at Irishtown, Dublin. It lies outside the medieval city walls.

Thanks Stephen for the wonderful, gargoyle-inspired photos and my chance to learn new things today! Finally my favorite photo ....

Stephen mentioned on Facebook he took the tour with Paddywagon Tours. Looks like a great one for anybody who makes it to Dublin. That is one of my bucket list dreams.


  1. I like your blog. You've gone many places. Most of them in European. I hope you can come Vietnam some day to visit natural environment. It's different with European but it's beautiful.

  2. I would love that Nomad Life. Going to Vietnam is on my bucket list. We actually have a furniture store on the island of Cozumel, Mexico and import furniture from Vietnam.
