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”

Our Saturday, again

It’s been ten months but finally we managed to have another Saturday together, Flavia and I. Sea walking, lunch, a new town, gelato, laughs and chatter… exactly what we both needed. It didn’t start well since just as I arrived in Cerveteri, our meeting place, I saw Flavia’s message: “Do not come! Dead battery!” LuckilyContinue reading “Our Saturday, again”

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”

PPAC: Stožice street art 1

Today starts a series of three street art posts from Ljubljana with photos that were mysteriously left under my doormat. Really. It starts with the sign that would make happy a certain demographic. As it is, in Slovenian pot means path and such signs are all along the 30 km (20 miles) circle around Ljubljana,Continue reading “PPAC: Stožice street art 1”

Thursday Doors 26/8/21: Ljubljana Stožice

Even for Slovenians, “Stožice” is not the easiest word and then they put it in the name of the newly built Arena (well, from 2010). Ž is pronounced like the second g in garage and the stress is on o. Try it: sto-ži-tze. It is what this part of Ljubljana, a 15 minutes’ walk fromContinue reading “Thursday Doors 26/8/21: Ljubljana Stožice”

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”

Thursday Doors 19/8/21: Betnava, Maribor

This is one of those posts that transfer you to a place, and doors – doors are always somewhere near. This was last Saturday when I took father to his city of birth. First we stopped at a castle. We start with mom seeing us off and end with the best photo of the bunch,Continue reading “Thursday Doors 19/8/21: Betnava, Maribor”

Thursday Doors 12/8/21: Ljubljana Rakovnik

Today only one church and its doors, but what a church! I’ve been seeing it from afar all my life, and only now thought to approach. I was blown away. It looks mighty Italian and yet it’s in Ljubljana, my birthtown in Slovenia, which I’m about to leave once again. By next Thursday I’ll beContinue reading “Thursday Doors 12/8/21: Ljubljana Rakovnik”
