Roadside Shrine

Photo by: John DePasquale

This little shrine was located on the side of the road, in the middle of nowhere, at the foot of a large crucified Jesus, on a bluff overlooking the valley leading to the Adriatic Sea from Alberobello.

I'm guessing this cross was situated here in part because the site is quite spectacular, offering a breathtaking 180° panoramic view of olive groves, farm houses, the coastal cities, and the beautiful Adriatic Sea. And certainly, in part, to ask for protection for those driving this curvy road with a dramatic dropoff to one side.

Today's post was a photographic collaboration between my parents and myself!

These shrines are so important to the people that leave them. You've captured them beautifully.
