Thursday Doors 19/1/23: Rome – Monteverde 2.

This is indeed a door post, even though the featured photo is of the first blooming tree I ever saw on Christmas. Not quite true: on previous Christmas I saw the same fruit tree in bloom, just that the photos I took were rather bad. Monteverde, the hospital and residential area of Rome, is whereContinue reading “Thursday Doors 19/1/23: Rome – Monteverde 2.”

Complete Calendar 2021

Before the new year arrives, I still need to deal not with this one but with the one before. Here is 2021 with one photo per month. As I have done five years before – links to previous calendars are listed below the gallery – here is 2021 as it was originally planned, with oneContinue reading “Complete Calendar 2021”

Day 12 & Lens-Artists PC: Bokeh

Today’s poem and photos go together especially well, since the poem describes the process of achieving my first deliberate bokeh. Still can’t pronounced it though. I shall describe and show the process first and my poem will follow. Be patient, please. First I saw our host Sofia’s post. Her photos have lovely blurred backgrounds –Continue reading “Day 12 & Lens-Artists PC: Bokeh”

March 2021

It’s that time again when I look back a year and select twenty glimpses from the same month a year ago to see what is coming. Looking forward to birds and poppies.

PPAC: Fanor Hernández in Rome 1.

Today I wish to return six years back when we were strolling along the Appian Way in Rome and encountered memorable lively statues by Colombian sculptor Fanor Hernández. Amore’s friend from work lives near Via Appia Antica, one of the oldest Roman roads, and he has a (female) dog. Perfect. In 2016 he and hisContinue reading “PPAC: Fanor Hernández in Rome 1.”

February 2021

It’s that time of month again when I look at the same month last year and choose 20 photos for my Calendar. Meet February, the month when spring comes to town. The only time I ventured out of my municipality, the air by the Orbetello lagoon was full of smoke. Italians like to burn stuffContinue reading “February 2021”

Friendly Friday rule of thirds

My first reaction was to rebel. Then I wished to obey and make my photos really nail the rule of thirds. And then I thought: But why? These are the first three photos that I chose for this post. Then the obedience phase set it. Here is a rose as taken + cropped horizontally +Continue reading “Friendly Friday rule of thirds”
