Photo Hunt - Self

The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is self. I suppose this means a self portrait. Accordingly I put the lens on that has reinforced glass and took these two.





One is of actually of a gargoyle on Notre Dame in Paris. I will let you decide which one is which...

The gargoyles are there to redirect people into thinking that they're more terrifying than the French governement. :)
