Monday Mystery Photo – Last Time New Zealand

Every second Monday, I post a photo of a ‘mystery’ location, and sometimes a mystery object. 

I invite you to leave a comment if you think you know the location, or what the mystery object might be.

The Mystery Photo, this week, comes from Arundhati and you’ll find her at the awesome blog: Thetravellingdiaryofadippydottygirl

Thanks so much for a great photo to make us ponder about.  And here we are continuing with another statue theme, this week.

Can you guess its location; do you know who it depicts or why?

If you do guess correctly, I will link back to your blog in the follow up post, when the answer is revealed.

Comments will be released in the intervening Monday (Australian E.S.T.), so as not to spoil the fun for latecomers. If you have a travel photo you would like featured on Monday Mystery, please leave a comment or contact me on my email which you will find on the Contact page.

Ineke from iscrap2 supplied us with a great challenge this time, to determine the location for the following statue.  Some readers thought it was a European  Statue, or even Icelandic, and I have to admit, this one was quite a tricky location, but if you have been following my blog posts recently, you would have found a clue there. 

The statue is actually located in the Hutt Valley, north of Wellington, New Zealand. Ineke tells us about the location of the statue –

“It stood in front of the Upper Hutt station since 1979,
called the Maternity statue, depicting a mother and two children.

The station walkway has been completed the end of last year. The statue has been moved southwards to a new area and is more visible to pedestrians and motorists.” -Ineke

The clue for the location of the photo, is that it is also the subject of the logo for a poetry challenge which runs once a month for six months on Our blogs: Iscrap2 and Something to Ponder About.

A and I Poetry Challenge

Join in, if you wish! It is something you could ponder about.

Last week we were in the French part of Switzerland at Montreaux, at the Freddie Mercury statue in the city.  Mel & Suan, TidiousTed  and Drake got the guernsey this week for a correct guess!  Congratulations!

Why was the statue here? According to MySwitzerland:

At the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1978, the singer recorded the album “Jazz” with Queen. He fell in love with Montreux and Lake Geneva and decided to settle here. He said, among other things, “If you want peace of soul, come to Montreux”.

To commemorate his time in Montreux, a bronze statue of Freddie Mercury was placed by the waterfront in 1996. And what of today? Well, his fans still come and place flowers by his monument every day.

NB.  I am going to hold the comments and approve them manually, releasing them on Friday/Saturday this week, so if your comment isn’t showing immediately, this is why. It will give everyone a chance to guess, without looking at the previously posted comments.  Good luck everyone!

Everyone then has a good deal to ponder about!

Last week we were in Norway at the cruise ship port in Andalsnes, on the beautiful Romsdalfjord. It is here that the Giant Troll greets tourists who make their way to his nearby home in Trollvegen or climb the hairpin bends of  Trollstigen.

There were many correct guesses last week. Well done, guys. Here they are:
