70 mi je godina tek

Excuse my use of foreign tongue in the title, but this is my uncle saying that today he turns only 70. Welcome to the rhyming party! First, the original song from the title: “You are only 17”, a classic from the Yugoslavia times. The majority of 35 photos in this post (readers are lucky thatContinue reading “70 mi je godina tek”

Wordless Wednesday: Which way signs

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Which Way and for Which Way Photo Challenge, hosted by San at Alive and Trekking This day in my blogging history

Lens-Artists PC: Interesting finds

This is what I do, more or less. My camera is always on the lookout for objects of interest, be it in nature or culture. That’s why I’m suffering when nothing new comes along, even though same old means rural Tuscany. I could do many galleries like this one, and I have, and I will.Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Interesting finds”

Pic and a Word #297: Ljubljana spectacle

Lately I can’t make my poems in any other way than by twisting the letters and shuffling the words around until they stick. But then again – is there any other way? Spectre of man, spectator of mankind, spectacle of yourself, receptacle of others. Spectacular. Today, January 16th, is the birthday of my two happyContinue reading “Pic and a Word #297: Ljubljana spectacle”

CFFC: Happy Tili, windows, trios and seats

Today celebrates my friend who was gone from my life for almost thirty years but now is back and was the last friend from Slovenia to visit me in Tuscany together with her pack. Here are chosen together times featuring windows, trios and seats from both my countries. I realise that not everybody thinks joiningContinue reading “CFFC: Happy Tili, windows, trios and seats”

Five riders and six cypresses

Today I thought of posting one of my contributions that wasn’t excepted by a past Visual Verse edition since I like it anyway. I was wondering which photos would go with six riders. I know, six cypresses, thought I, gathered 10 photos of the same cypress field through the year, and then read my pieceContinue reading “Five riders and six cypresses”

Lens-Artists PC: Five new challenges

What a good idea Tina has! Why not bring us closer together by making us join new challenges? I gladly obey. This post answers to five. Every blogger just starting out should be told this: Do not wait. Start joining challenges immediately or your blog will only be visited by perplexed relatives for a yearContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Five new challenges”

Almost 50 documentaries

This post deals with all the documentaries that I have seen in the last three years. They are varied, sensational, ground-breaking, important, fun and neatly ranked and rated. But first, I wish to celebrate my friend Crystal, my generation, who celebrates her birthday today on a trip to Boston, one day after David Bowie, ElvisContinue reading “Almost 50 documentaries”

Thursday Doors 6/1/22: Maribor

Since today is my grandma’s birthday, I’m taking you on a door tour through Maribor, her city, where my father was born. It is also Slovenia’s city number 2. We visited her often and I spent many happy times with her, but she died two years before I moved to Tuscany almost nine years ago.Continue reading “Thursday Doors 6/1/22: Maribor”

PPAC: Piran 7 – Art mix

When I was gathering photos for this series, I already knew which photo will be the last in the final post. I’ll let nature win the art contest. But before the last one let’s have a look at all the little and big art pieces in Piran which are not murals, not church art, notContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 7 – Art mix”

Lens-Artists PC: January 2021

I had a bit of a problem deciding what to do. Lens-Artists ladies wish to see our favourite photos of 2021 but I don’t know which they are yet. I need to wait until the end of this year to find out. January is the best I can do. You see, since 2016 I’ve beenContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: January 2021”

A lion, a dog and a puddle

A little photo memory from this summer in Slovenia. There is always a puddle in front of my parents’ house in Ljubljana. In two weeks in August, between photos #2 and #3, it only got bigger. Bestia approves. (Blogging memories of today are actually yesterday’s, and vice versa. I mixed up the drafts. No worries,Continue reading “A lion, a dog and a puddle”

Wordless Wednesday with more than four colours

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Four Colors or More This day in my blogging history (Actually tomorrow, December 30th)

Complete Calendar 2020

I like to relive the past like this, year after year, month by month, 20 photos at the time. Before the new year can start, I have to deal away with the previous. These were my twelve months of 2020. At the time when people make calendars for 2022, I’m two years behind. What elseContinue reading “Complete Calendar 2020”

PPAC: Piran 6. – Murals

I was glad to see that Marsha put her post up despite the holidays and that she included my last week’s PPAC post among the featured ones. We are not done with Piran yet. Today: street art in four locations. The first two photos I took in 2017 at the Piran primary school’s playground. QuiteContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 6. – Murals”

Series killer

Today we are going serial. No fear, I will not spoil any series for you, but here are all the TV series and miniseries that I have seen in the last three years. They are ranked and accompanied by outdoor sitting as spotted here in Tuscany. Yes, it has indeed been three years since myContinue reading “Series killer”

Tuesday Trees

There is no challenge with this name that I know of but it could well be. Today is just the Tuesday to show Suzanne, who celebrates Two weeks of trees, and all of you some trees in my life from my two countries. I have always wished to write a book. In fact, I stillContinue reading “Tuesday Trees”

Lens-Artists PC: La Serenissima

This is a trick title. Neither is this post about Venice, nor am I very serene right now. I’m in pain, my back said it had enough of sitting here all the time. I got pills and cream and hope for the best. Still, only five photos. Ha. I also got a package from SloveniaContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: La Serenissima”

PPAC: Piran 5. – Lighthouse and rocks

Who would think that Piran is such an arty town? This is the fifth post from it for our beloved public art challenge and two more are waiting to be posted. Today we look into and around the tiny lighthouse on the tip of the peninsula. It’s true that you need to a pay aContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 5. – Lighthouse and rocks”

December 2020

Before we run out of this December, here is my last year’s in twenty images for my Calendar 2020. At the very end of the year I shall post the final calendar with one photo for each month. I’ve been doing this for five years now. Every month I go through all my photos fromContinue reading “December 2020”
