November 2021

Before the month runs out, it’s time for my monthly Calendar post. Here is last November in twenty images plus two special photos from this year. Let’s start with a photo that my uncle in Ljubljana sent me almost three weeks ago, of his Japanese maple in all its November splendour. Next, today is theContinue reading “November 2021”

Thursday Doors 27/10/22: Ischia di Castro 1.

Yes, I know, there is a cat above, but this post is still the beginning of a new door series from a small town that is not even in Tuscany but in Lazio. Ischia di Castro saw me for the first time almost exactly one month ago, when uncle, bestia and I stopped there forContinue reading “Thursday Doors 27/10/22: Ischia di Castro 1.”

Thursday Doors 16/6/22: Piran 2.

Thinking about how to arrange all my recent door photos from the pretty Piran, I decided to just do it chronologically. All these are from the first Saturday in June, two days after I arrived in Slovenia for the summer. I’m having problems with the speed, image quality and typing on my laptop, so I’llContinue reading “Thursday Doors 16/6/22: Piran 2.”

Friendly Friday leading cat lines

This post is really an excuse to show Sarah the cats around my home last May. Hopefully certain lines that lead to cats will be noticeable. Whatever you do, never learn photography from me. I promised Friendly Friday Sarah to do my best in finding leading lines in my photos, but then I got distractedContinue reading “Friendly Friday leading cat lines”

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 24: Body of work

Today I woke up, read the prompt, fell back into dreams, and awoke with the first part of the poem. It is also the birthday of my elephant-loving friend without a single elephant in my post and the election day in Slovenia. Prompt 24: “Hard-boiled detective novels are known for their use of vivid similes,Continue reading “Day 24: Body of work”

Day 17 & Pic and a Word #309: Dogs

I could write a poem with a line for every dog I’ve ever met… Prompt 17: “This is a fun one – it’s a prompt developed by the comic artist Lynda Barry, and it asks you to think about dogs you have known, seen, or heard about, and then use them as a springboard into whereverContinue reading “Day 17 & Pic and a Word #309: Dogs”

Day 15 & Friendly Friday beneath our feet

Here is a collection of things under my feet in photos and another of things I don’t care about in the poem. April halfway done! Prompt 15: “This one may seem counter-intuitive, but today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about something you have absolutely no interest in. This isn’t quite theContinue reading “Day 15 & Friendly Friday beneath our feet”

Day 14 & Thursday Doors: First two weeks of Tuscany

My first three blogs were called Mexi Movie. I’m ready for a film of my life. In fact, this is what my blog is. A film with lots of doors. Prompt 14: “Today’s challenge is a fun one: write a poem that takes the form of the opening scene of the movie of your life.“ NineContinue reading “Day 14 & Thursday Doors: First two weeks of Tuscany”

Day 13: Stream of a con

How about some random thoughts about a calf and how amazing things are going to be? Prompt 13: “Today, in honor of the potential luckiness of the number 13, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that, like the example poem here, joyfully states that ‘Everything is Going to Be Amazing.’“ Stream ofContinue reading “Day 13: Stream of a con”
