October 2020, part 2

Here is the second part of my last October as promised. Today’s photos are from two mega trips as a reminder that I must just go. To think about it, October was the last month when we could have any amount of fun out of our municipality for more or less half a year! SoContinue reading “October 2020, part 2”

Lens-Artists PC: Extra ordinary

Our guest host I. J. gives us a tricky theme this week: the ordinary. My camera is used to catching abnormalities and the extraordinary. Where is the border between the usual and the unusual? At first I was not sure what to go after. I opened the folder of my first year in Italy, 2013.Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Extra ordinary”

October 2020, part 1

This has never happened before but now it will. There will be two October posts for my Calendar 2020. I simply couldn’t choose only 20 photos, so another 20 will follow soon. Last October I went on two such mega trips that I could post only photos from those two days. And I will, butContinue reading “October 2020, part 1”

Wordless Wednesday 6/10/21

I don’t have internet connection at home since yesterday and had to sign into WordPress with my phone and post from there for the first time in 8 years, just so I don’t miss my daily post going on since May. Be well and send some good net vibes. Phone sucks. ADD-IT: It’s back. YourContinue reading “Wordless Wednesday 6/10/21”

Pic and a Word #284: Vulnerable

“The vulnerable won’t help” is one of those pot idea lines that have stuck. What do you mean you don’t have these? Since I have already written a poem with this title once I will repeat it this time. It was short and not so sweet and posted in April 2018 for NaPoWriMo together withContinue reading “Pic and a Word #284: Vulnerable”

Pic and a Word #283: Layers of blogging

Patrick is back with his challenge and it’s high time I wrote another poem. Layers of blogging My blog is my home. No, it’s neater than that. And there have been more blogs in my lifetime than homes. My blog is my reason to be, my job, my diary, a mark of the passing ofContinue reading “Pic and a Word #283: Layers of blogging”

Lens-Artists PC: United colours of autumn

Today I fondly remember four times when autumn showed itself most clearly to me here in Italy and there in Slovenia. Usually I have a look in the archives for such a challenge and take what calls out to me, but this time I had four days in mind already and only had to searchContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: United colours of autumn”

Friendly Friday flower button

It took me a while to discover the flower button on my point-and-shoot and experiment with what it could do. Now I have a new old Nikon D5000 and it likes to look at the world up close even more. All today’s photos were taken with my first DSLR camera, which I’ve had not yetContinue reading “Friendly Friday flower button”

September 2020

Before this September runs out, here are twenty images from last year’s for my Calendar series as is my monthly habit. Every month I look back a year and select twenty photos that will represent this month forever in my mind’s eye and for all of you who choose or happen to pass by. AsContinue reading “September 2020”

Found for Friendly Friday 1

Unlike some I know, I only take found objects with me in the form of visual memory. Here are several such memories from this May onwards. Clearly more than half of my photography is capturing found objects since I had 40 images gathered immediately. Therefore there will be another post for this Friendly Friday challengeContinue reading “Found for Friendly Friday 1”

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”

The story of a camera

This is the most palpable example of how blogging ripples. Not only you get the best people into your life, sometimes they bear astonishing gifts. All photos in this post are by Liz Pettit at Fetching the World. The new old camera, the wonderful past week, and the three quotes in this post are byContinue reading “The story of a camera”

Lens-Artists PC: Ups and downs

They say life needs to have its ups and downs, but over here with our visitors it’s been only up up up since Tuesday when they arrived. Let this post show that we look down too. This was our visitors’ last full day in Italy before Slovenia and all these ups and downs happened onContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Ups and downs”

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”

Here and now

As I’m off to meet my incoming friends at the airport, here is what they will see when they get here. I may like posting greens and blues, but here and now Tuscany looks like this. Yesterday it didn’t start right, since their first flight was cancelled. I cannot imagine how this must have felt.Continue reading “Here and now”

Lens-Artists PC: Potential walking

Here are some views of my city of birth Ljubljana, which I am about to show to my special visitors from far away, with the special emphasis on the mountains to show Crystal that we have some too and to give her ideas where all she could be walking. I’d love to, keep walking, butContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Potential walking”

Friendly Friday encounter

Who says that it must be a human? Especially because I tend not to meet many new ones lately. While two humans are incoming from far away – new only in person – here is somebody who cheered me up 100% earlier this month like only members of its species can, even if they don’tContinue reading “Friendly Friday encounter”
