Last photos of October

This post will be brief, to the point and drama-less. Sure, easy for me to say. What about the praying mantises about to be hatched? I laughed when I saw my friend K.’s comment on Facebook: “Soon you will be an auntie!” Quite. A praying mantis decided to lay her eggs on our gate. ApparentlyContinue reading “Last photos of October”

Last photos of September

Last month ended with the following four photos. I was thinking no drama for a change, alas, the final one says it all. Let’s start innocently, with the last photo from our daytrip with my uncle before he returned to Slovenia. Our day ended with a non-filtered Ichnusa, my uncle’s favourite beer, and a freshlyContinue reading “Last photos of September”

Thursday Doors 15/9/22: Maribor 1

This post is one day late. For the first time in ages, I had nothing yesterday. Not doors, I always have those, I didn’t have the spirit. It’s my last two days in Slovenia. I think it’s been raining for 48 hours. In the night non-stop thunder, which had bestia climbing all over the room,Continue reading “Thursday Doors 15/9/22: Maribor 1”

Thursday Doors 8/9/22: Goodbye, Piran

Here are the last doors from Piran for this year as a goodbye, with some weather, music and Luka news. Today I left the coast and after a two-hour drive in heavy downpour arrived in Ljubljana in the centre of Slovenia, where I get to hear Konstrakta live with her band in a couple ofContinue reading “Thursday Doors 8/9/22: Goodbye, Piran”

Last photo of August

The last photo is from serene Piran, but the news are from tumultuous Tuscany. I’m having such dramatic summer last photo posts… In June it was Luka and his almost shirt, in July it was camera trouble, and on Saturday a rain bomb hit our home in Tuscany. Our first floor got flooded because theContinue reading “Last photo of August”

Last photo of July with lens trouble

Yesterday I remembered that it was the last day of the month so I made sure that my last couple of photos make a good piece of evidence of my lens trouble. This is something that has been happening more and more often. Have a look at my penultimate and last July photo: By theContinue reading “Last photo of July with lens trouble”

Thursday Doors 28/7/22: Piran in July

All these doors were captured this month on the coast of Slovenia. There are worse times and places to be. All but two, that is. Yesterday, just as I was choosing doors for this post, the following door came flying in by way of Crystal, my friend from Oregon who visited us last year andContinue reading “Thursday Doors 28/7/22: Piran in July”

Thursday Doors 14/7/22: Piran 5

Here is another portion of doors in Piran by the sea All these doors face the sea which was so full of jellyfish yesterday that I refused to enter. They are the small translucent kind that don’t sting but it’s no fun to suddenly touch one underwater. Pay attention to the last photo which showsContinue reading “Thursday Doors 14/7/22: Piran 5”

Thursday Doors 7/7/22: Koper 1.

Let’s infiltrate another city among all the Piran doors that have come and will be coming on Thursdays for a while. Koper is the biggest coastal city in Slovenia and here are a few of its doors. One Wednesday in June I drove to Koper by bus from Piran for 40 minutes and spent theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 7/7/22: Koper 1.”

Last photos of June

Isn’t this a case of good timing! While there may be only flowers as the last photo on my camera, my phone provides something special. First, the flowers: And here are my last two photos on my phone since I didn’t pack my camera to The Game on purpose. I knew I’d be otherwise occupied.Continue reading “Last photos of June”
