Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


The challenge for Tuesday’s A-Z Archive Challenge:  S is sponsored by FrizzText.  Click on link to see more entries to this challenge.

I choose for my entry a “SCULPTURE” that signified the unity I feel with the blogging community and my fellow-men all over the world.  I took a picture of this sculpture, located in the East Liberty neighborhood of Pittsburgh behind the First Presbyterian Church, a couple of years ago.



This sculpture is called “JOY OF LIFE”.  The figures are leaning back as if they were holding each other up as they celebrate.

These men with their arms locked together (represent) the strong and the weak; the affluent and the poor; the educated and the underprivileged; this is one society, one community.
