Lens-Artists PC: Interesting finds

This is what I do, more or less. My camera is always on the lookout for objects of interest, be it in nature or culture. That’s why I’m suffering when nothing new comes along, even though same old means rural Tuscany. I could do many galleries like this one, and I have, and I will.Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Interesting finds”

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”

Five riders and six cypresses

Today I thought of posting one of my contributions that wasn’t excepted by a past Visual Verse edition since I like it anyway. I was wondering which photos would go with six riders. I know, six cypresses, thought I, gathered 10 photos of the same cypress field through the year, and then read my pieceContinue reading “Five riders and six cypresses”

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”

Pic and a Word #296: Bluster

Once in a while I have to google the challenge word we are given. But even once I did, only silly verses dropped by. Bluster, buster, blister, booster. Gust, bust, lust. Just … must. Blast from the past, best for the last: blues & rhythm, drum & bass. The photo accompaniment is more serious. TheseContinue reading “Pic and a Word #296: Bluster”

Thursday Doors 6/1/22: Maribor

Since today is my grandma’s birthday, I’m taking you on a door tour through Maribor, her city, where my father was born. It is also Slovenia’s city number 2. We visited her often and I spent many happy times with her, but she died two years before I moved to Tuscany almost nine years ago.Continue reading “Thursday Doors 6/1/22: Maribor”

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”

Pic and a Word #295: Chill, year

A poem, a song, a quote and six photos from today, the first of firsts. Over here the year has started really good. There hasn’t been a single downside about today. Let it last. First, I feel the need for a tune. This one. Have a look at it too. And when you’re done, you’llContinue reading “Pic and a Word #295: Chill, year”

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!”

December 2020

Before we run out of this December, here is my last year’s in twenty images for my Calendar 2020. At the very end of the year I shall post the final calendar with one photo for each month. I’ve been doing this for five years now. Every month I go through all my photos fromContinue reading “December 2020”

Best of Thursday Doors 2021

Since this is the last Thursday Doors post of the year, let’s have 30 of my favourite doors posted in 2021. This year has been spread over two blogs, so the first half and a bit of my Thursday Doors can be found on my previous blog Mexcessive. With August we have all moved toContinue reading “Best of Thursday Doors 2021”

Pic and a Word #293: From the cradle

A cave must have been the cradle of civilisation, agreed? Here is a short ditty in words and a small cave in pictures. From the griddle to the crave from the cradle to the brave from the bridal to the cave from the tidal to the slave. Fun fact: First I had “gradle” in theContinue reading “Pic and a Word #293: From the cradle”

CFFC: Two colours

Another fun gallery to make for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. The more colours, the better. Today two. I love colours. Last week it was only one, now there are two in every image. Again photos need to words. They were taken in my parents’ garden in Piran, Ljubljana Botanical Gardens, and on walks around myContinue reading “CFFC: Two colours”

Thursday Doors 9/12/21: Holiday doors

Today a mix of happy doors with a cheer, a tree, a light, a bird or a bestia. I’m really glad that I forgot to post these two special door gifts from Oregon last week since they fit perfectly in today’s post. Every day when I’m gifted a door is a holiday. Crystal sends theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 9/12/21: Holiday doors”

Pic and a Word #292: Rocky

Today a real-life poem and photos from the Colosseum, but only from the outside. Inside is just a bunch of rocks. The Colosseum “It’s nothing but rocks,” says he, Rome born and bred. “No, I have never been inside, why would I go?” He still takes me to see it on my first visit, immediatelyContinue reading “Pic and a Word #292: Rocky”

Last photo in November

This time I knew exactly what day it was as I was strolling with bestia. The last day. So I had to pay attention to the last thing. Here it is, Monte Amiata on the right with a fresh coat of snow, untouched. Bushboy’s rules are simple:1. Post the last photo on your SD cardContinue reading “Last photo in November”
