Dragon

Here is what I found on the corner of one of the old tenement houses in Bytom - one of the cities in Silesia, just 20-30 minutes' drive from where I live. Bytom, unfortunately is quite "underinvested" and hence full of such old buildings that are just crying for a general overhaul. But I know that it is a very beautiful city which deserves to have a photoblog of its own. And I know what I'm talking about, cause I used to live in Bytom for some years ;) But untill someone starts shooting photos around Bytom, I will sometimes post a picture here. For another photo of the Dragon -> click here.

Here's the proof that crocodiles and aligators are spawned from dragons! ;)

That is a cool...well, it's not a gargoyle. Dragoyle? Alligoyle? Whatever it is, it's cool!

Looks like a dragon to me, meaning if I were to encounter one, I would quickly run away and tell everyone "There's a DRAGON after me!" Whereupon, they would sit me down, give me tea and assure me that i could not possibly be correct.

Thanks for finding it!!! Lili

A Dragon is a very special anymal. It's the symbol of some things in Porto. The photo interests me a lot, because this Dragon is very similar to a modern Gargoyle (typical e 13th century cathedrals), or dhould I say, a chimera. Gargoyles are a fascinating subject. that's why I blog them. If you find some interesting ones, please send them to me, pictures of gargoyles I mean.

You are very right about Bytom, great history and so many old beautiful buildings which are unfortunatelly so run down....
