Lens-Artists PC: Inspirational post

What inspires me most often? There are other things too, such as doors, but these photos wished to be together like this in this gallery. Who am I to say no?

Except our first dog – his photo is from 2007 when he was eight like bestia is now – all these are from the last two years, from Italy and Slovenia, as is my habit.

I’m still in Slovenia for a few days and it’s getting hotter and hotter. I fear to think of the heat that awaits me in Tuscany which is considerably more to the south than Slovenia. Heat is one thing that inspires me the least.

So let’s see: what has inspired me the most lately?

For Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, hosted by Patti at P. A. Moed: Your Inspiration

This day in my blogging history

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

    1. Hihi, SMSW, it did try, the bench. It’s funny that I found the exact same love letter plea on another postbox, that one in Ljubljana. Now I don’t know if this campaign was organised officially by the Post of Slovenia, or a street artist has been very thorough and covered postboxes all around Slovenia.

    1. Thank you, Bonnie! In Rome there are several families of parrots that live wildly in the big parks, nesting inside the tall pine trees. It was weird seeing a flock of birds pass and they were all green. This was before I knew of it. Sometimes a single bird comes into some garden as happened the time of this photo. The resident cat was not too amused. Bestia was keeping out of it.

  1. What lovely inspirations! I loved the little cake box…that was a treat too, and the watercolor painting was lovely. It reminded of the painter Joseph Zbukvic. It’s a style I’d like to try one day.

    I can relate to Amore a bit. The older I get the more afraid of heights I’m getting!

    1. Oh, I never heard of Mr. Zbukvic before and now checked him out and it’s really similar! The height problem thing is true for me too, with age it worsens. Thank you, Deborah, I’m glad you liked my inspiration sources.

  2. A wonderful collection, Manja. I’m delighted you’re joined us again! Your gallery is inspiring me to visit some lesser known places in Italy. Thank you for that!! And of course, I loved your past and present “bestia” and the images of your family. Great inspiration!

    1. Thank you kindly, Patti. I loved all the guest hosts and your post too. This is great to hear, that you wish to see more of Italy after seeing my post. Italy is so full of such places that don’t get enough mention.
