CFFC: Curvy & archy

This is Italy for you: curves – from pasta too – and arches. I could easily use only photos from Niki’s Tarot Garden, but there is so much more.

Let’s begin there though: Il Giardino dei tarocchi, or the Tarot Garden, is a sculpture park in the south of Tuscany 15 minutes from me where Niki de Saint Phalle lived and created the world around her.

After I wrote above and uploaded the photos 5 hours ago, the internet connection died again. No fun this phone editing.

First six photos are from the Giardino, the rest as it says in the captions. Feel free to add curse words.

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Curvy or Arches


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. Thank you, Curt. My sister wished to go to Burning Man when she lived in Mendocino for a while but I don’t think she made it. These are great because they are here to stay and nobody gets burned. 🙂


  1. Ooh! I love the Star’s curves the best. I want her in my garden. It’s a fun surprise when your photos match my photos sometimes, like the Santa Fiora pics. And I am captivated by that handsome hunk in the arch at Amiata. So in MY photo of Lenny, I am a little backed up, and there is a photo of a woman, whom I don’t recognise. But when showing trip photos to Tara the other day, they didn’t recognize Lenny but said, “Oh! It’s Lady Gaga.” So, I’ll put money on it that you are right about the identity. I like your final water shot.

  2. ADORE THE SCULPTURE GARDEN. Brassieres and undulations and all! ❤ Is that your mum standing in a very choice position? What a lovely way to frame a portrait!! 😀 Hahaha!! Gosh, photo opportunities everywhere though. It's always like that with Italy, it's lush with beauty. Great captures, Manja.
