Sunset over the Mongolfiera Mall

Today marks my 200th post on Molfetta Daily Photo. I am really glad to have begun this blog and especially to have joined the City Daily Photo community which is full of such kind, supportive and wonderful people. I am not a photographer, my area of expertise has always been linguistic, but through this blog I have discovered the joy of really looking at things and trying to create an interesting image. And it has forced me to stop and think about the place where I live, and how to present it to those of you from other corners of the globe. I started this blog from a feeling of being unhappy with Molfetta's limitations, but through the blog I have (re)discovered how many good things there are here, too. Thanks to all of you who stop by to visit me here every so often!

I like your blog and your photos too: the spirit of Daily Photo is clearly stated as a way of showing your city to others.
I am a novice here in CDP, but I see people posting beatiful but meaningless photos just to show off...
Keep going! You're right!

Congratulations, Saretta! And what a beautiful image to celebrate the day.

Aside from your beautiful photos, it has always been because of your writing that your blog has been a favorite of mine. And I am glad for you that you re-found beauty and goodness in Molfetta because of your blog. Keep it up! I am looking forward to many more years of photos and insightful commentary from you about Molfetta.

Oho! 200 is a respectful number of posts!!! Well done Saretta. I like your eye on Molfetta and I completely agree with you: doing VDP helped me to look at the town with different eyes, so now I tend to really appreciate details that once I hardly notice...
