Lens-Artists PC: Shadow heroes

Where I live there is a little park. I needed a while but then I realised what is strange about it: there is not a single bench. But there are tall pine trees that cast great shadows. I’m not a fan of black and photo photos (mine, that is) but I thought this photo ofContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Shadow heroes”

For Alenka and all Taurus people

Since I am a Taurus myself, with my birthday coming up in two weeks, I seem to get along with others like me the most. Today celebrates my first internet friend who I have met in person, and not just once. What are we like, if you didn’t know? Down to earth, outspoken, determined (someContinue reading “For Alenka and all Taurus people”

Last photo of April

Happy May 1st, happy birthday to my other uncle Rajko, happy end of April, happy new moon, and happy beginning of the second round of the NBA playoffs! Today I spent with my visitors from Slovenia, who are travelling around Tuscany, and it felt really good. I can still feel the sun on my face.Continue reading “Last photo of April”

Day 26 & Lens-Artists PC: Smile and simile

A post with a heart of light and gold today, since the Mavericks won so mercilessly last night. Who’d say that the most joy I’ll be getting will be from a 23-year-old Slovenian having fun playing basketball in Dallas? I almost wrote another poem for Luka (following this one) but that would be an exaggeration,Continue reading “Day 26 & Lens-Artists PC: Smile and simile”

Day 18 & Lens-Artists PC: Piran sunset colours

When uncle sent me these photos four days ago, I promised him to put them on my blog. I didn’t know I’ll get a chance so soon though. And in my poem, some more (para) romantics. Today the photos first to set the mood. My travelling uncle has a new phone. The first red photoContinue reading “Day 18 & Lens-Artists PC: Piran sunset colours”

Day Seven & Thursday Doors 7/4/22: Villa di Radi 2.

This is the last door post from the open-door day last May when I visited three properties south of Siena in Tuscany. But first, two images and a poem. The first was shared today by a dear friend with this quote: When a great moment knocks on the door of your life, it is oftenContinue reading “Day Seven & Thursday Doors 7/4/22: Villa di Radi 2.”

Day Five & Last photo of March

The photo above is the last that I took in March because bushboy asks for it, and in the poem, the murder of peace as it happens. Another soul-stirring poem in the prompt today, Alfredo Aguilar’s “Palomar Mountain” from Waxwing. And let me add another cheerful one: “The Date (Notes to Self)” by Romana Iorga.Continue reading “Day Five & Last photo of March”

Day Three & Pic and a Word #307

Today we were to react to a 4-line stanza by another poet – and look, Patrick has a poem of exactly four lines in his Pic and a Word challenge this week. Prompt 3: “It’s a Spanish form called a ‘glosa’ – literally a poem that glosses, or explains, or in some way responds toContinue reading “Day Three & Pic and a Word #307”

PPAC: Fanor Hernández in Rome 2.

Here is the second part of Fanor’s bronze statues as happened upon along the Appian Way in Rome six years ago. As you could see last week in part 1, this Columbian sculptor is very good at making bronze come to life. Today amore, his friend from work, our two dogs and I enter theContinue reading “PPAC: Fanor Hernández in Rome 2.”
