I love my view!

I've been told that if you take a picture of
a person next to one of these stone creatures that
live atop Notre Dame, the chimera will look real and
the human will appear to be made of stone.  I've never
tested it out myself, but others I know have and guess what:
It's true.  If (or better yet, when) you go to Paris, 
the 387 steps of the north tower and try it out for yourself.
(Or just go up there for the awesome view!)

What's the story?

Saturday, 8 A.M., rue St. Julien le Pauvre—
in front of the Hotel Esmeralda.  I can think
of a few scenarios to go with this image, all of 

them dramatic and most likely involving tears.
So, is this a sad tale or a happy one?
