Last photo in December

Not matter if it’s crappy, as long as it’s happy. My last camera photo in December was taken on Christmas Eve, of the black nemesis, and I posted it already unaware that it would be the last of the year. I repeat it here as taken, together with the penultimate one. I did however takeContinue reading “Last photo in December”

Pic and a Word #295: Chill, year

A poem, a song, a quote and six photos from today, the first of firsts. Over here the year has started really good. There hasn’t been a single downside about today. Let it last. First, I feel the need for a tune. This one. Have a look at it too. And when you’re done, you’llContinue reading “Pic and a Word #295: Chill, year”

Happy, healthy, hearty 2022!

And let the black cat dream happily instead of crossing any road. For the last day of the year, here are some recent photos from our Christmas trip to Rome, the first after almost two years. I saw some fruit trees in bloom, and yesterday a mosquito bit me. I saw zero Christmas lights inContinue reading “Happy, healthy, hearty 2022!”

Pic and a Word #294: What travel?

This is how I travel, feet up. The pic is from a previous October but the words are from two days ago and the placement is the same. I haven’t been anywhere since, except brief dog walks. Today I may have been only in our supermarket by the lagoon, choosing chocolate, lettuce, yogurt but I’mContinue reading “Pic and a Word #294: What travel?”

Lens-Artists PC: I choose

I was really happy to see that this week Tina lets us choose what to post. I’ve just had a wonderful Saturday and wish to show it to you. I went Among Humans again, but it started with a bird. I think I understand now why I don’t do it often, go anywhere out ofContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: I choose”

Last photo in November

This time I knew exactly what day it was as I was strolling with bestia. The last day. So I had to pay attention to the last thing. Here it is, Monte Amiata on the right with a fresh coat of snow, untouched. Bushboy’s rules are simple:1. Post the last photo on your SD cardContinue reading “Last photo in November”

Wordless Wednesday 17/11/21 – New lens testing

Lens: new Tamron 18-200. Camera: new old Nikon D-5000. Location: home and Southern Tuscany around it. Lesson: don’t wield that sun visor wildly. 😀

CFFC: Future nostalgic

Isn’t this a brilliant theme? I had one photo in mind immediately and was sure to gather many others. And then… Cee’s post is so cute and I was in such good spirits when I started to look. The first photo I searched out deliberately. It was of a poster we spotted in Padua thisContinue reading “CFFC: Future nostalgic”

Lens-Artists PC: Five days in a life

Friday was like most days. All I did was walk the dog: right in the morning light, left as the sun sets. The other four days were more active. They were the only ones in the last two months when I went somewhere else. Amy’s challenge is actually called A Day of my Week soContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Five days in a life”

Pic and a Word #286: Sailing to Punta Ala

This was my Tuesday. No, I wasn’t sailing. I came by car but had to return. Read all about it – prose this time instead of poem – and see for yourselves what the future is like. I think I was disappointed since I expected a lovely little old town but pleased because I knewContinue reading “Pic and a Word #286: Sailing to Punta Ala”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 2

As promised, here is the continuation of our visit to a town of which I only learned because Facebook assumed correctly that I’d like it. I hope you do too as there will be four more posts from here. Fairy-tales forever! The only thing I regretted was that I was not carrying a child orContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 2”

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”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 1

Today a new series begins from the town in Lazio called Sant’Angelo. Here are the first 15 minutes of our Tuesday visit when uncle, bestia and I went fairy-tale hopping. For Tuesday I had planned three stops in places from my list that were new to me: first Montefiascone above Lake Bolsena (check, the viewContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 1”
