Saturday Snapshots #150

Pont Neuf gargoyle – Paris, June 2011


The Pont Neuf across the River Seine in Paris was officially opened in 1607 and, despite its name (“new bridge”), it is the oldest bridge in the city.  Walking under it along the river, you get a great view of the dozens of gargoyles adorning the entire length of the bridge.  No two are the same and each is more bizarre than the next.


This is part of a series of non-food photographs that will be published every Saturday on CookSister – previously featured photographs can be viewed on the Saturday Snapshots compendium pages. Photos featured in Saturday Snapshots are available to buy as high-quality greeting cards or prints in my RedBubble store, or even as gorgeous A3-size2011 CookSister calendars for foodies, for London-loversItalophiles or beach lovers.

If you want a custom calendar with your own selection of photos, starting in a month other than January, please e-mail me and we can discuss your requirements. They make great gifts, for friends or for yourself.

    You have an eye for a unique piece of art. I am imagining how under the bridge looks like from your description and I was expecting photos of them too.

    Paris is a stunning city. I always like to look at the Gargoyles on the various cathedrals around Europe, especially those found in England. They give a rather fascinating insight into the imaginations of our ancestors.
