PPAC: Prekmurje 1. – Robert Jurak

When Marsha asked me recently what my next public art series would be, I still had no idea. And yet today starts a new series from Prekmurje, the region in the NE Slovenia that is a part of the vast Pannonian plain. First comes Robert Jurak, a welder artist. Prekmurje means “the land over theContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 1. – Robert Jurak”

Lens-Artists PC: January 2021

I had a bit of a problem deciding what to do. Lens-Artists ladies wish to see our favourite photos of 2021 but I don’t know which they are yet. I need to wait until the end of this year to find out. January is the best I can do. You see, since 2016 I’ve beenContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: January 2021”

Complete Calendar 2020

I like to relive the past like this, year after year, month by month, 20 photos at the time. Before the new year can start, I have to deal away with the previous. These were my twelve months of 2020. At the time when people make calendars for 2022, I’m two years behind. What elseContinue reading “Complete Calendar 2020”

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!”

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. 😀

CFFC: Future nostalgic

Isn’t this a brilliant theme? I had one photo in mind immediately and was sure to gather many others. And then… Cee’s post is so cute and I was in such good spirits when I started to look. The first photo I searched out deliberately. It was of a poster we spotted in Padua thisContinue reading “CFFC: Future nostalgic”

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”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 6

Here it is, the final part of my fairy-tale town series. It is a special place, especially if you have kids but adults will be entertained as well. Thank you for all the joy, Sant’Angelo di Roccalvecce! This is a town that clearly knows what it is doing. In 2017 they started with the firstContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 6”

November 2020

With this Calendar post we begin the six months that were really nothing to brag about. I took less photos than usually. I saw fewer new things. I talked to so few people (in person). I was in the pandemic funk and it started in November. First, before autumn is done: The most wonderful autumnContinue reading “November 2020”

October 2020, part 1

This has never happened before but now it will. There will be two October posts for my Calendar 2020. I simply couldn’t choose only 20 photos, so another 20 will follow soon. Last October I went on two such mega trips that I could post only photos from those two days. And I will, butContinue reading “October 2020, part 1”

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”

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”

Prepost

As there is a preseason, this is a prepost. This blog starts tomorrow, today just a few photos to show the strength of this theme called Shawburn. It is good to make your photos fullblown or fullwidth, as they call it on WordPress. First, the blog’s icon, chosen for its yellowness. And here is aContinue reading “Prepost”
