That's a very cool picture!

That's great! I love his posture.

Barb Cabot:

Love it! Awesome image of the two sizing each other up.

Do you know, I particularly like this. :)

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Girasoli, great photo. I almost didn't see the boy! Have a great weekend!


I love it. And wondering at his wonderment (is that a word?) ... what could he have been thinking.... will he remember this visit? will it be etched in his memory?

G - great shot ! Wonder what the boy was thinking....M

Very cool photo! It took me a minute to find the boy.

Cool photo! I wonder if the boy was thinking:"What can't I look like that?"


I had to go and look more than once for the boy, oops, but yes, what a great shot.

Thanks everyone. I have to admit I did crop out some people standing to the left and to the right of the fountain, but I did not photoshop anyone out. The boy is hard to spot at first. I love the way the boy is standing there looking up. I too wonder what he is thinking.

Awesome photo!

That is a wonderful photo. As others have said, it is really cool how it looks like the two are communing. Almost as if the boy is receiving a blessing or some sort of important instruction.


Oh my lord, it took me a moment to figure out what you meant by "the boy" -- he looks so tiny!!! I had no idea how gigantic the sculpture is until I saw the boy, that certainly puts it in perspective.

That makes this such a fantastic photo! Was it taken in Bologna?


Ignore my question about where the fountain is located! I've been catching up on your blog, and reading posts in reverse order (which I shouldn't do!) I just saw the Neptune fountain in one of your earlier posts on Bologna!

Maria, thanks!

Deborah, it does look like they are having a conversation :)

sandra, he is hard to spot. I purposefully chose this title as a hint figuring the boy would probably be missed without the clue. He is easier to see when the photo is blown up a little more. I did the same thing on another blog, asking a question that was then answered in the previous post (also reading backwards).
