Lens-Artists PC: Happy end for odds

Here are some photos with words whose time to shine has finally arrived.

I like to post whatever I feel like and have been known to smuggle all sorts of photos into all sorts of challenges, so that now when Tina asks us to post photos that have been itching on the bench to be let out to play the longest, I wasn’t quite sure what to do. And then I did just that.

Many of the photos that have been patiently waiting feature words so I searched out more like them, taken when a city spoke to me in other ways, not by writings on the wall (even though a couple of such examples are included as well). Most are first-timers, only a few of these have already been posted on my first blog but it’s been eight years since.

Today we start in Slovenia but soon pass into Tuscany and Rome. Additional info and translations are provided in the captions. No matter what the last photo says, always welcome back.

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. So many fun images Manja – a perfect set for the challenge this week! The city duck is a hoot, and the closing image cracked me up. Finally, a soft spot in my heart for L’Unicorno – of course!

  2. So much fun in the variety of words! Your gift for whimsy serves us all very well. I particularly like the “Pesca” photo — an artifact of an earlier time that continues to whisper to us today. I love finding faded advertising signs on old buildings. Keep finding and sharing them! And I very much appreciated your Sunset Cocktail from 2017. Wow!

    1. Thank you, Carol Ann! I’m glad I chose the best photo to be featured then. My gift for whimsy, how lovely this sounds! I suppose that’s why it’s impossible for me to be bored. I have many sunset photos but it’s always better when you are right there surrounded by all this light. Photos rarely do it justice. Good to hear that you like these.

  3. You’re the biggest photo smuggler ever, hands down. You know all the ways.

    I love that Disaronno shot, it’s got book cover vibes. More beach read feel that starts off as an unassuming romance then *taps nose* turns into a darker crime mystery thing, I’d say.

    I also like the drink 🙂
