Vietnam Memorial. The names are listed in the order the soldiers died. It's a timeline of sorts. Hope this counts because I just shot this a few days ago and wanted to show it.

[image from undergroundbastard.com too old to be available]On October 24, a fire wiped out the 163-year-old St. George Maronite Catholic Church, leaving only the wall behind the pulpit intact, but melting all the other glass in the building as almost the rest of it burned to the ground.

Gargoyle in France, but don't remember where. Shot with a Lomo. Note that the face of the cherub to his left is chipped off--that's because of protestant iconoclasts removing the faces of all statues depicting saints. I wish I had the other picture handy, which shows the faceless saints above him.
