Lens-Artists PC: Weird is wonderful

Frankly, half of posts on my blog could have this title. For me, weird is absolutely wonderful and here is a collection of moments, finds and finally us being wonderfully weird, because Leya asked for it.

There is art, architecture, some statues, a funny name, some dogs, a snake (yes, yes, a real snake), an insect, some roadside attractions and it ends with four crazy people. These made the cut but frankly, I could go through my archives and choose twenty different ones in under a minute.

And also frankly, I could do the whole post from Giardino dei tarocchi by Niki de Saint Phalle alone. Here it is in the first photo below from the outside looking in for a change. And then we hop between Italy and Slovenia as is my habit if the year is good.

The featured photo is special. This was the door amore took me to see in Rome in the early days, even before I had eyes for doors as much as I do know. I love it that he knew even before I did what I’d soon begin to search out.

Be happy and stay weird, or other weirdos won’t be able to find you.

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. Well, dearest Manja – I still love your mind and photographic eye…despite or thanks to all this weirdness! Love your images for this theme, and the one that totally freaked me out laughing was the dog that used to be a cat – or was it the other way around? 😀 ♥♥♥

      1. You are so right – and the world would maybe be a better place if we said yes to our true colours. As a grown-up I have become better in doing this…always tried to be pleasing and do what was expected of me when I grew up, and as a young girl too. You are precious, Manja.

  2. Such a great collection for Weird and wonderful. I found the Social media float with the man on the left quite interesting. That IS the way some people act, isn’t it? The large stone Three Angels were kind of strange too. Wonder why they are in an empty field? All in all, great collection! Donna

    1. It is indeed, Donna. On our blogs we cannot hide many things. We are more of an open book. That’s why my blog is my preferred social medium. Please, have a look at one of my replies above and you will find a link to the post about the Three Angels where you can view them in total and they will make more sense. Thank you!

      1. I’ll look. Thank you. I live the way you put we are an open book, and it’s your preferred social medium. I’m always happier in my blog, thinking I need to open up more if who I am, and update. 😎
