Thursday Doors 29/9/22: September 2021

I have already showed you my last year’s September in Italy and Slovenia in my two previous posts, only its doors were missing since I’ve been saving them for today. First of all, I wish health and safety to you all. These things are more than just little treats or small mercies. Let them last.Continue reading “Thursday Doors 29/9/22: September 2021”

September 2021

Last September was such a happening month. Here it is in twenty images for my monthly Calendar series. Let me continue right where I stopped in my previous post: I showed you our seven days together with Crystal and Pedro which were spent in Tuscany and Slovenia. Some of today’s photos are from this timeContinue reading “September 2021”

Thursday Doors 3/3/22: Celleno 2.

September was ending but it was still hot. Two days before uncle returned to Slovenia we went on our second lovely road trip to see ghost museums and fairy-tale murals. This would be my last trip in company. I have showed you the ghost town Celleno, its open-air museum in the castle, and all theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 3/3/22: Celleno 2.”

Hi, I’m Manja Mexcessive, this is my blog An Embarrassment of Riches and here are my 15 special places.

70 mi je godina tek

Excuse my use of foreign tongue in the title, but this is my uncle saying that today he turns only 70. Welcome to the rhyming party! First, the original song from the title: “You are only 17”, a classic from the Yugoslavia times. The majority of 35 photos in this post (readers are lucky thatContinue reading “70 mi je godina tek”

Lens-Artists PC: Five days in a life

Friday was like most days. All I did was walk the dog: right in the morning light, left as the sun sets. The other four days were more active. They were the only ones in the last two months when I went somewhere else. Amy’s challenge is actually called A Day of my Week soContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Five days in a life”

CFFC: Curvy & archy

This is Italy for you: curves – from pasta too – and arches. I could easily use only photos from Niki’s Tarot Garden, but there is so much more. Let’s begin there though: Il Giardino dei tarocchi, or the Tarot Garden, is a sculpture park in the south of Tuscany 15 minutes from me whereContinue reading “CFFC: Curvy & archy”

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”
