Pictures of Biltmore

I've been carrying my camera, but not taking too many pictures lately. When I have seen something worth photographing the light has been bad.

I did manage to snap a few photos at the Biltmore House before Christmas that are worth sharing.

This fellow is not a gargoyle. Gargoyles are rain spouts. When the monster is purely decorative it is called a grotesque.

At Christmas time the lions wear wreaths, and sometimes children.

If it had not been overcast I probably would not have been able to get these pictures. The sun would have been so low on the horizon that it would have washed everything out.
