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”

Five from Ostia Antica

On the last day of this August I went to the Fiumicino Airport to pick up my visitors from Oregon. After the lunch of fritto misto we went to Ostia Antica, a huge archaeological site of the ancient harbour of Rome. Here are just five glimpses from it. We had to show our Covid-19 vaccinationContinue reading “Five from Ostia Antica”

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”

Thursday Doors 4/11/21: San Gimignano

San JimmyJano, JohnRH called it in a comment to my Tuesday’s post, and I find it hilarious. Here it is, my first time in this small but highly touristy Tuscan town this September. When uncle and bestia and I went on our first autumn daytrip, I chose this famous multi-tower town on purpose as ourContinue reading “Thursday Doors 4/11/21: San Gimignano”

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”

Friendly Friday decades

Here is a video that Sandy completed a while ago and now I’m sharing her work with you. Earlier in the year I marvelled at the videos put together for the Bloggers with a View project, for example “Paths around the World” which is compiled from videos sent in by bloggers from all over theContinue reading “Friendly Friday decades”

Lens-Artists PC: Ups and downs

They say life needs to have its ups and downs, but over here with our visitors it’s been only up up up since Tuesday when they arrived. Let this post show that we look down too. This was our visitors’ last full day in Italy before Slovenia and all these ups and downs happened onContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Ups and downs”

Vámonos!

Taken with the new used camera Nikon DX in Sovana, with big thanks to the woman in the picture. Instead of zoom it has antizoom and I’ll have to buy a lens for it, but other than that it’s a wicked toy. It immediately made me not just click any more. It’s the little blackContinue reading “Vámonos!”

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”

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”

Lens-Artists PC: Feet with shoes

Leya surprised me with her theme of feet and shoes and then my archives surprised me with the quantity of available images. There are so many that this is merely Post 1. I’d never guess how many feet shots I own. The last photo I took especially for this challenge. Today the galleries are two:Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Feet with shoes”

Srečno, Lidija!

Today celebrates my writer/poet friend and here are some photos from ten days ago when us four last met. We had lunch and then drove up to Orle where the last battle for the liberation of our city was fought. You wrote three novels, “A Spare Life”, “Skrita kamera”, and “Non-Oui” – probably my favourite,Continue reading “Srečno, Lidija!”
