Lens-Artists PC: Five new challenges

What a good idea Tina has! Why not bring us closer together by making us join new challenges? I gladly obey. This post answers to five. Every blogger just starting out should be told this: Do not wait. Start joining challenges immediately or your blog will only be visited by perplexed relatives for a yearContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Five new challenges”

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”

CFFC: Two colours

Another fun gallery to make for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. The more colours, the better. Today two. I love colours. Last week it was only one, now there are two in every image. Again photos need to words. They were taken in my parents’ garden in Piran, Ljubljana Botanical Gardens, and on walks around myContinue reading “CFFC: Two colours”

PPAC: Piran 4. – Safet Zec

I would like to apologize for the sadness of today’s post, but sadness can be beautifully portrayed as well. Especially if you are from Bosnia, a country with its fair share of sadness but also joy. This summer Bosnian painter Safet Zec displayed 50 works from his cycles Exodus and Embraces in eight locations inContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 4. – Safet Zec”

CFFC: More or less one colour

As you can see, monochrome is in the eyes of the beholder, and this beholder says: one colour, more or less. Cee’s – who is our host – and Bushboy’s images for this challenge were so vibrant and happy that I immediately wished to go through my archives and make my own post. Here itContinue reading “CFFC: More or less one colour”

Pic and a Word #291: Begging to begin

Today’s poem is so short that it comes with a song. Or is it vice versa? Plus there are pictures, of Rome, of course. It’s where Måneskin are from. Song first. Amore had said that they would win the Eurovision Song Contest for Italy, and they did. This happened in May and he is stillContinue reading “Pic and a Word #291: Begging to begin”

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. 😀

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”

CFFC: I (can)did it again

I have to search for people in my photos with a torch if you don’t count my tribe. Animals are better represented. Here is a careful selection of 25 times I shot both since my last candid post. It was this one, my Can? Did! post from 2019, and looking at it now I’m amazedContinue reading “CFFC: I (can)did it again”

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”

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”

Lens-Artists PC: Wide world

Going wide? Two weeks ago I wouldn’t even know what you mean. Before (since 2015): The Nikon Coolpix L830 point-and-shoot has a 34x Nikkor optical zoom lens, which is a 35mm equivalent of 22.5-765mm. Now (for the last two weeks): Nikon D5000 has a AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm VR Lens. So you see, Patti, it seems that IContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Wide world”

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”

September 7

I had prepared a draft post for every day my visitors were with us, and this is the last post that I have in my drafts. This means that Crystal and Pedro are off to new pastures – first the ones in Venice – while amore, bestia and I have just returned home to Tuscany.Continue reading “September 7”

Blurs

Here is a collection of unintentional blurs that I find too interesting to delete. Best to gather them together like this and pretend to be an artist. But first, look what a wonderful video Sandy put together of the early years of her, Amanda and me. Find it in her today’s post. There will beContinue reading “Blurs”

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”

PPAC: The beloved space

In my mind I’m getting ready to return to Tuscany, to my beloved and his spazio which can mean place or space. This is what I found there when I returned from Slovenia last August. I first noticed the letters when I passed Lake Burano, a few minutes from our home, at 10 in theContinue reading “PPAC: The beloved space”

Lens-Artists PC: Inspirational post

What inspires me most often? There are other things too, such as doors, but these photos wished to be together like this in this gallery. Who am I to say no? Except our first dog – his photo is from 2007 when he was eight like bestia is now – all these are from theContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Inspirational post”

CFFC: Big blue

Blue is the second colour in my scheme, right after green. Here are twenty blue photos, a lovely blue door in my blogging history, and just in – a lovely flesh hand-made postcard from New York from Kerfe. Even better than a medal. K. sent it a while ago, and this post of hers isContinue reading “CFFC: Big blue”
