This statue is located in front of the Madonna dei Martiri church at the north end of town. I don't know the name of the sculpture or year of installation, or anything, unfortunately...I forgot to take notes when I shot the photo! Currently I am not getting out of the house much as my younger son is having some health problems and is confined to bed. But I promise to find out more about this statue and let you know as soon as possible!
I wanted to post the photo even without all the details because one of my readers, Lagrasta, whose family comes from Molfetta, although he lives in the USA, mentioned that he loved this statue. At least, I believe this is the one he had in mind! (Let me know if this is not the right one, Lagrasta!)
Today I received the Blogging Friends Forever Award from Petrea of Pasadena Daily Photo (and other!) fame. I am so thrilled to receive this award because I admire Petrea and her blog for her thought-provoking photos and writing. I think it's especially nice that it's an award for "friends." I'm honored to be a friend of Petrea! We need all the friends we can get, I say!
Now, I get to give the award in turn to five bloggers, according to the following rules:
1. Only five people are allowed.
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. One has to be someone new or recently new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.
My award recipients are:
Hilda of My Manila, who is perhaps my most faithful comment-leaver. I am always thrilled to hear what she has to say about my photos!
Michelle of Bleeding Espresso, who, whether she knows it or not, was one of my very first blogging inspirations!
Fabrizio of Torino Daily Photo, who has offered me kind support from the very beginning!
Kimy of Mouse Medicine and Lakewood Daily Snap, whose work is inspiring and moving. I thank her for her comments and support which have meant a lot to me!
My new friend is Nobu of Funabashi Daily Cell Phone Photo whose photos take me back to my days in Japan and whose haiku are truly lovely!
Take a moment to visit my friends at their blogs, I think you'll enjoy them!
