New York Statuary
Lanny Medlin's Albums > New York Statuary
They crouch on window ledges and lurk in corners. They stand guard at doors and windows. The gargoyle's, grotesque's, and chimera's of New York City are whimsical, eerie, and often, funny creatures that can be found all over the city. New York is a very visual city and as I walk the city I usually give myself a theme to photograph. I hope you enjoy this excursion as I wander the streets of New York.
