Pic and a Word #285: Tango

Tango will be the death of me “When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.” ~Wayne Dyer (with thanks to Selma) Dance, dance. It takes two to tango. And if it doesn’t you don’t and you know. I tellContinue reading “Pic and a Word #285: Tango”

PPAC: Sant’Agnelo 3

Today’s public art post, the third with fairy-tale murals from Sant’Angelo, comes with a little reality check. As I write this (Friday, 5 pm), we have had no internet connection in home for the last twenty-four hours. And on Wednesday we were again without water most of the day. These problems are not related, neitherContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Agnelo 3”

Thursday Doors 14/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 1.

It was two weeks ago, on the day trip that included the ghost town Celleno and the fairy-tale mural town Sant’Angelo. Before we reached either we stopped at the Fortress of the Popes above Lake Bolsena, where I had never been before. I will have to go back though. The day was murky but theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 14/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 1.”

This little girl is me

She was so serious. She wanted to be a detective (not enough crime in her country), a writer (pending), a movie director (in a parallel life). But what she really wanted was to live by the sea. Here it is, 1.8 km away. Hold on to your books. Have your priorities straight. Always talk backContinue reading “This little girl is me”

Thursday Doors 7/10/21: Doors for lunch

Today’s post is an immersive experience. You will be fed doors for lunch in Tuscany on a glorious September day. After yesterday’s new moon when our internet went on a 24-hour fast as well and I had to post via my phone, it’s so good to be back behind my big screen. Our connection isContinue reading “Thursday Doors 7/10/21: Doors for lunch”

Lens-Artists PC: Can’t find a better day

As far as days go, last Tuesday was a good one, if not for the castle of the ghost town Celleno, then for us. You saw it, or better its doors, on Thursday already: Celleno, il borgo fantasma, the ghost town in Lazio between Orvieto and Viterbo. Today we look beyond the doors to seeContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Can’t find a better day”

Last photo of September 2021

I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t cheat again. There is the last photo of September too, unedited, the last in the gallery, but there is a whole bunch of others as well. You see, I figure why leave you alone with one terrible photo if I can add a few that happened before thisContinue reading “Last photo of September 2021”

Friendly Friday decades

Here is a video that Sandy completed a while ago and now I’m sharing her work with you. Earlier in the year I marvelled at the videos put together for the Bloggers with a View project, for example “Paths around the World” which is compiled from videos sent in by bloggers from all over theContinue reading “Friendly Friday decades”

Through Crystal’s eyes

All today’s photos were taken by Crystal during her and Pedro’s discovery of my two countries, Italy and Slovenia, in the first week in September. It is with gratitude and big thanks that I’m posting these glimpses from our one week together which proved that things happen if you make them happen, first by ideaContinue reading “Through Crystal’s eyes”

CMMC: My summer dark greens

This is my first entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge and she would like to see our dark greens, possibly my favourite eye balsam. All my today’s photos were taken this year from June up to now. This has been an exceptionally busy time for me, especially after months and months of low activity. MyContinue reading “CMMC: My summer dark greens”

Last photo of August 2021

This time around the last day of the month was not just a little special, since my friends Crystal and Pedro touched down on the 31st August. I took them to eat sea food in Fiumicino and to see ruins in Ostia Antica. Perfect first day, and even Flavia managed to join us in Ostia.Continue reading “Last photo of August 2021”

Lens-Artists PC: Queen light and Miss Tree

Light is queen but this is Miss Tree 2021. Father and I met her a week ago near Betnava Castle. Unlike photographers this tree cannot move and yet has been catching the best light for 250 years, experts estimate. At first it sounded like another human folly to me, proclaiming a tree the winner ofContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Queen light and Miss Tree”

PPAC: The Three Angels in Maribor

Last Saturday father knew exactly what I’d like to see in his city of birth. He was even willing to call in and grant us access. No need, the angels are free to visit. They are even in Google Maps under Trije Angeli. All father knew was that they were at Vodovod, Maribor, the waterContinue reading “PPAC: The Three Angels in Maribor”

Lens-Artists PC: Feet without shoes

Rarely but it happens that I have two posts for one challenge. On Tuesday feet were shoed, today they are shoeless. I remember when Sandy had her hands and feet challenge and a question formed in my mind: In a temple where you are to walk barefoot, is it feasible to do it in shoesContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Feet without shoes”

Friendly Friday’s back to the future

This time our host Amanda has come up with a fascinating way of looking backward and forward at the same time, and she does it splendidly in her host post. Here is my look back with the help of dad’s amazing photography. This theme goes together well with Sandy’s Flashback vlog which she has beenContinue reading “Friendly Friday’s back to the future”
