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”

PPAC: Public art in Ljubljana

As I told Marsha, probably two thirds of all photos that I take contain some degree of public art. I find myself saving many for this challenge designed and run by Marsha and Cee who is the host today. All today’s photos were taken in the last three weeks, now that I’m in my SloveniaContinue reading “PPAC: Public art in Ljubljana”

Lens-Artists PC: Postcards

This – postcards – is what my photos most look like and I’m neither ashamed nor embarrassed by it. A while ago I looked through all the episodes of a certain photography challenge with young candidates dropping out one per episode, with colourful jury presided by Mr. Benetton himself, Oliviero Toscani (I see now thatContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Postcards”

The first post

First things first: If you want your blog to have larger captions, you need to pay for it, a WP expert told me yesterday. Beyond silly. After eight years of free blogging? No, I don’t. They wish to make you desperate enough with their lack of options so that you pay. Apparently I have chosenContinue reading “The first post”
