January 2022

Here we go, back in time for one year again. This is the beginning of my seventh Calendar series. It’s true that I don’t take as many photos as I used to, but finding twenty last January photos that I wish to gather in this post was not hard. It starts with the first photoContinue reading “January 2022”

Thursday Doors 15/12/22: Best of 2022

Are you ready for a door feast? Here are two massive Mexcessive galleries with a selection of Thursday Doors posted this year. I love doing this kind of overview posts, especially since I don’t need to upload anything new, merely look back in my Media and select the favourites. And since this is the lastContinue reading “Thursday Doors 15/12/22: Best of 2022”

I wish to remember the good old times in hope of more to come with photos taken by my friend who celebrates today. This post is also my contribution to the second Thursday Doors Writing Challenge: three door photos called my name and caught my eye and earned some words.

Thursday Doors 12/5/22: Green doors of Italy

I set out to find green doors in my archives and immediately had 50 photos from one year alone. That’s why today Italy, Slovenia next week. Last week K. mentioned in a comment to my post that she liked green doors and I was reminded of the green door post I did once before. IContinue reading “Thursday Doors 12/5/22: Green doors of Italy”

You have seen this town and most of its doors already but the photos are new. On Sunday I hopped up with my passing visitors and clicked around while they climbed the tower. Sunday was lovely.

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 29 & Friendly Friday: Travel books

As Sandy teams up with the four ladies who run the What’s On Your Bookshelf challenge on the subject of travel books, I’d like to present three books by three bloggers that I admire. On my penultimate poem of April, I was barely able to nail the poetry series, just like the Mavs. But weContinue reading “Day 29 & Friendly Friday: Travel books”

Day 21 & Thursday Doors 21/4/22: Ljubljana Bežigrad

Why is it that some things end up together? And why don’t I shoot the doors in Slovenia the same way as in Italy? First the poem, and then the doors with an invitation to write about them. Prompt 21: “This prompt asks you to write a poem in which you first recall someone youContinue reading “Day 21 & Thursday Doors 21/4/22: Ljubljana Bežigrad”

Day 11 & April 2021

Today I look back a year and show you last April in twenty images for my Calendar series, and in the poem talk to a giant floating island of plastics, as one does. Prompt 11: “Following up on yesterday’s love poem, I have for you another deceptively simple challenge. Today, I’d like to challenge youContinue reading “Day 11 & April 2021”
