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”

PPAC: Piran 3. – Let’s read this place

I am a firm believer in really getting to know a place by reading its walls and other surfaces. Sometimes you won’t like all you learn but at least you’ll know. Not all scribbles that follow are artistic but all have merit in adding soul to the city, no matter what kind this soul turnsContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 3. – Let’s read this place”

Lens-Artists PC: 18 images/18 stories

I smiled a little when I saw what Leya envisioned for her One Image/One Story challenge: “Pick one or two, maybe three?” Ahh, how cute. Three is a lonely number. How about other 15. This is how I do it every time. If a little story unfolds when I look at a photo, I know:Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: 18 images/18 stories”

Dear parents, well done!

As another year is being added to your union, let’s celebrate you and the fortune that is to be born near you. Luckily, I don’t need to study this question too hard, because you two indeed met and took care of my face and all the rest. Here are some of the loveliest photos thatContinue reading “Dear parents, well done!”

PPAC: Piran 2. – Three sculptures

Why don’t we continue our art tour of Piran on the Slovenian coast with three sculptures, one by an Iranian, another by an Argentinian, and the third by two Serbian artists? First this. I have been posting daily since May the 20th. It has come along spontaneously, the idea and the execution, when I decidedContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 2. – Three sculptures”

Friendly Friday: Roma in Piran

This was a brief but friendly encounter on the Slovenian coast five months ago when we went to the bus station to meet my incoming uncle. “Roma!” I heard behind me. I turned and there was the cutest terrier with the fanciest collar ready to meet bestia. Bestia, who is male if anybody still doubtsContinue reading “Friendly Friday: Roma in Piran”

Lens-Artists PC: Seven times bliss

For today’s post, which answers to two challenges with similar themes, I gather seven times when I felt blissful. I wouldn’t mind revelling in repetition of such times, but most of them were unique. I have a good friend who has just come out of the hospital after almost three weeks of Covid-19 pneumonia andContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Seven times bliss”

CFFC: Boooooks

Here is a compilation post for Cee close to my heart, with my favourite books and book photos of the last eight years. Just yesterday, as I was reading my first Martin Beck novel, The Laughing Policeman, on my e-reader, Kobo, I realised what is wrong with e-readers. They don’t make me feel the sameContinue reading “CFFC: Boooooks”

PPAC: Piran 1. – Church art

This is the first post in my new public art challenge series. We will spend several weeks in Piran on the Slovenian coast and admire its many art forms, styles and shapes. Let’s start with some of its many churches and chapels. Even though my parents have had a house in this small but extremelyContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 1. – Church art”

Lens-Artists PC: Shapeshifting in style

This is my favourite kind of posts: a compilation of shapes and styles from here, Italy, and there, Slovenia. No wonder I couldn’t stop before I hit 30 photos. I did my best to pair my photos in a way to create some sort of structure, while marvelling at Patti who was able to selectContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Shapeshifting in style”

Weekend Writing Prompt #235: Death by concert

I rarely decide on a new challenge since my blogging days are really full as it is, but Nope, Not Pam (last week) and Sunra Rainz prompted me to have a try at a new prompt. Each week writer Sammi Cox proposes the word and the length and off we go. This week it’s mirrorContinue reading “Weekend Writing Prompt #235: Death by concert”

My Friendly Friday airports

First of all, this post for Amanda turned out a bit long. Thank you for reading, really. As I told Snow Melts Somewhere recently, it takes a certain effort to be swept in anything these days. I truly appreciate it. The runway ends in a hillock, then there’s the fence, and then there’s us. TheContinue reading “My Friendly Friday airports”

Thursday Doors 11/11/21: Ljubljana Bežigrad

Because sometimes you need doors that come with mom. These are the doors and more of Bežigrad in the north of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. All today’s photos were taken this summer five minutes or less from my parents’ house which was my home too for 20+ years. Even when I left, my newContinue reading “Thursday Doors 11/11/21: Ljubljana Bežigrad”

CFFC: Sandy and shelly

I focused on sand out of Cee’s offered theme Sand or Dirt because I found just the quote to go with something that I can always find on the 12 kilometres of sand right here, the last beach in Tuscany. And I don’t mean dog. The other reason for choosing sand over dirt? I mustContinue reading “CFFC: Sandy and shelly”

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”

Friendly Friday weather

Today’s forecast: A compilation of weathers from here and there for Friendly Friday Sandy. Our most usual weather – clear sky with a rare cloud – is represented the least. So spoiled am I that I notice it only when it’s gone. Two quotations come to mind immediately regarding the weather. Here is the first:Continue reading “Friendly Friday weather”

Lens-Artists PC: Weird is wonderful

Frankly, half of posts on my blog could have this title. For me, weird is absolutely wonderful and here is a collection of moments, finds and finally us being wonderfully weird, because Leya asked for it. There is art, architecture, some statues, a funny name, some dogs, a snake (yes, yes, a real snake), anContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Weird is wonderful”

CFFC: Twisty or squiggly

Another mighty fun gallery put together for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, ending with my favourite twisty image of all times. I clearly remember posting several twists of fate already, including the last shot of today. It was the post Simple twists of May 2017 when I lost my front tooth to chicken. Today I addContinue reading “CFFC: Twisty or squiggly”

Thursday Doors, 21/10/21: Ljubljana

Since today celebrates my poet friend, we stop the regular posting and look back at the day when I saw him last. Certain doors are waiting to be showed from that day as if they knew today would be Thursday. Whenever I’m in Slovenia we manage to get together at least once, and I appreciateContinue reading “Thursday Doors, 21/10/21: Ljubljana”

Lens-Artists PC: Street treats

Oh, how I love this theme. Here is a selection of most memorable or quirkiest pieces from here, Italy, and there, Slovenia. Art in the street – how marvellous. I’ve always loved it when streets talk and I know the language, but art without words is even more universal and accessible. That said, some wordsContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Street treats”
