Thursday Doors 20/1/22: Santa Severa 5.

With this post we say goodbye to Santa Severa, that’s why I’m letting several non-door photos take part too, for you to get the feeling of how gloriously this day ended. It was a hot day in September 2020. My uncle was on a visit and we met with Flavia in Tarquinia, from where fourContinue reading “Thursday Doors 20/1/22: Santa Severa 5.”

Monday Window: Santa Severa Castle

Since windows are natural companions to doors, whoever loves ones must love the others too. Here are a bunch from the museum in the Santa Severa Castle on the Italian west coast between Rome and me in southern Tuscany. As I was selecting doors from this castle for my last Thursday Doors post, many windowsContinue reading “Monday Window: Santa Severa Castle”

CFFC: Happy Tili, windows, trios and seats

Today celebrates my friend who was gone from my life for almost thirty years but now is back and was the last friend from Slovenia to visit me in Tuscany together with her pack. Here are chosen together times featuring windows, trios and seats from both my countries. I realise that not everybody thinks joiningContinue reading “CFFC: Happy Tili, windows, trios and seats”

Lens-Artists PC: Five new challenges

What a good idea Tina has! Why not bring us closer together by making us join new challenges? I gladly obey. This post answers to five. Every blogger just starting out should be told this: Do not wait. Start joining challenges immediately or your blog will only be visited by perplexed relatives for a yearContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Five new challenges”

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”

Last photo in December

Not matter if it’s crappy, as long as it’s happy. My last camera photo in December was taken on Christmas Eve, of the black nemesis, and I posted it already unaware that it would be the last of the year. I repeat it here as taken, together with the penultimate one. I did however takeContinue reading “Last photo in December”

Happy, healthy, hearty 2022!

And let the black cat dream happily instead of crossing any road. For the last day of the year, here are some recent photos from our Christmas trip to Rome, the first after almost two years. I saw some fruit trees in bloom, and yesterday a mosquito bit me. I saw zero Christmas lights inContinue reading “Happy, healthy, hearty 2022!”

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”

Thursday Doors 25/11/21: Santa Fiora 2.

Last week we came to this pretty town with a fish farm in its middle, today we climb the hill to the old town and find a most excellent meal. And doors are always nearby too, except when they are hidden by flowers so pretty that you don’t mind it at all. Since I willContinue reading “Thursday Doors 25/11/21: Santa Fiora 2.”

Thursday Doors 18/11/21: Santa Fiora 1.

This is the first of two Santa Fiora door posts from my first time there in early September. I chose this lovely sounding and looking town to show it to my two visitors from Oregon sight unseen and we weren’t sorry. This is chestnut territory below Monte Amiata, the highest peak of lower Tuscany, whichContinue reading “Thursday Doors 18/11/21: Santa Fiora 1.”

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”

Verboten!

The friend who seven years ago sent me the Pippi book re-emerges from her dark woods of Canada, starts a creative challenge on Facebook and calls Verboten as the theme. Dog forbid I say no. Verboten! To love more than. To love too early. To love still. Verboten! – To show nipples. To not showContinue reading “Verboten!”

CFFC: I (can)did it again

I have to search for people in my photos with a torch if you don’t count my tribe. Animals are better represented. Here is a careful selection of 25 times I shot both since my last candid post. It was this one, my Can? Did! post from 2019, and looking at it now I’m amazedContinue reading “CFFC: I (can)did it again”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 4

Our stroll around the little but picturesque town Sant’Angelo in the Province of Viterbo moves into its second half with this post where we again meet some familiar faces, tails and tales. For a town which I imagined would end around post 2, Sant’Angelo kept spreading in a fully unpredictable manner. Even us grown-ups, thatContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 4”

October 2020, part 2

Here is the second part of my last October as promised. Today’s photos are from two mega trips as a reminder that I must just go. To think about it, October was the last month when we could have any amount of fun out of our municipality for more or less half a year! SoContinue reading “October 2020, part 2”

Lens-Artists PC: Can’t find a better day

As far as days go, last Tuesday was a good one, if not for the castle of the ghost town Celleno, then for us. You saw it, or better its doors, on Thursday already: Celleno, il borgo fantasma, the ghost town in Lazio between Orvieto and Viterbo. Today we look beyond the doors to seeContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Can’t find a better day”

September 2020

Before this September runs out, here are twenty images from last year’s for my Calendar series as is my monthly habit. Every month I look back a year and select twenty photos that will represent this month forever in my mind’s eye and for all of you who choose or happen to pass by. AsContinue reading “September 2020”

Getaways with Flavia

She has this category on her blog and it’s the best it could be: Getaway with Manja. We had twelve such since December 2019 when we first met for real in Rome. Then first pandemic got in the way and now she is moving far away for a year. I often say that blogging bringsContinue reading “Getaways with Flavia”
