Pic and a Word #285: Tango

Tango will be the death of me “When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.” ~Wayne Dyer (with thanks to Selma) Dance, dance. It takes two to tango. And if it doesn’t you don’t and you know. I tellContinue reading “Pic and a Word #285: Tango”

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”

Friendly Friday friend

Let’s call him Rory since this is his name. It was not exactly travel, more like a job that brought me to Denmark, but travel around we did, a busload of students and I as a journalist. My last evening in the country, Rory was Irish, a writer and suddenly there. This was not aContinue reading “Friendly Friday friend”

Lens-Artists PC: Extra ordinary

Our guest host I. J. gives us a tricky theme this week: the ordinary. My camera is used to catching abnormalities and the extraordinary. Where is the border between the usual and the unusual? At first I was not sure what to go after. I opened the folder of my first year in Italy, 2013.Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Extra ordinary”

October 2020, part 1

This has never happened before but now it will. There will be two October posts for my Calendar 2020. I simply couldn’t choose only 20 photos, so another 20 will follow soon. Last October I went on two such mega trips that I could post only photos from those two days. And I will, butContinue reading “October 2020, part 1”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 2

As promised, here is the continuation of our visit to a town of which I only learned because Facebook assumed correctly that I’d like it. I hope you do too as there will be four more posts from here. Fairy-tales forever! The only thing I regretted was that I was not carrying a child orContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 2”

Wordless Wednesday 6/10/21

I don’t have internet connection at home since yesterday and had to sign into WordPress with my phone and post from there for the first time in 8 years, just so I don’t miss my daily post going on since May. Be well and send some good net vibes. Phone sucks. ADD-IT: It’s back. YourContinue reading “Wordless Wednesday 6/10/21”

Pic and a Word #284: Vulnerable

“The vulnerable won’t help” is one of those pot idea lines that have stuck. What do you mean you don’t have these? Since I have already written a poem with this title once I will repeat it this time. It was short and not so sweet and posted in April 2018 for NaPoWriMo together withContinue reading “Pic and a Word #284: Vulnerable”

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”

Last photo of September 2021

I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t cheat again. There is the last photo of September too, unedited, the last in the gallery, but there is a whole bunch of others as well. You see, I figure why leave you alone with one terrible photo if I can add a few that happened before thisContinue reading “Last photo of September 2021”

Pic and a Word #283: Layers of blogging

Patrick is back with his challenge and it’s high time I wrote another poem. Layers of blogging My blog is my home. No, it’s neater than that. And there have been more blogs in my lifetime than homes. My blog is my reason to be, my job, my diary, a mark of the passing ofContinue reading “Pic and a Word #283: Layers of blogging”

Lens-Artists PC: United colours of autumn

Today I fondly remember four times when autumn showed itself most clearly to me here in Italy and there in Slovenia. Usually I have a look in the archives for such a challenge and take what calls out to me, but this time I had four days in mind already and only had to searchContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: United colours of autumn”

Friendly Friday flower button

It took me a while to discover the flower button on my point-and-shoot and experiment with what it could do. Now I have a new old Nikon D5000 and it likes to look at the world up close even more. All today’s photos were taken with my first DSLR camera, which I’ve had not yetContinue reading “Friendly Friday flower button”

Friendly Friday decades

Here is a video that Sandy completed a while ago and now I’m sharing her work with you. Earlier in the year I marvelled at the videos put together for the Bloggers with a View project, for example “Paths around the World” which is compiled from videos sent in by bloggers from all over theContinue reading “Friendly Friday decades”

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”

Through Crystal’s eyes

All today’s photos were taken by Crystal during her and Pedro’s discovery of my two countries, Italy and Slovenia, in the first week in September. It is with gratitude and big thanks that I’m posting these glimpses from our one week together which proved that things happen if you make them happen, first by ideaContinue reading “Through Crystal’s eyes”

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”

The story of a camera

This is the most palpable example of how blogging ripples. Not only you get the best people into your life, sometimes they bear astonishing gifts. All photos in this post are by Liz Pettit at Fetching the World. The new old camera, the wonderful past week, and the three quotes in this post are byContinue reading “The story of a camera”
