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”

Thursday Doors 14/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 1.

It was two weeks ago, on the day trip that included the ghost town Celleno and the fairy-tale mural town Sant’Angelo. Before we reached either we stopped at the Fortress of the Popes above Lake Bolsena, where I had never been before. I will have to go back though. The day was murky but theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 14/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 1.”

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”

Thursday Doors 7/10/21: Doors for lunch

Today’s post is an immersive experience. You will be fed doors for lunch in Tuscany on a glorious September day. After yesterday’s new moon when our internet went on a 24-hour fast as well and I had to post via my phone, it’s so good to be back behind my big screen. Our connection isContinue reading “Thursday Doors 7/10/21: Doors for lunch”

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”

Thursday Doors 30/9/21: Ghost town Celleno

I’m glad to be able to bring you the freshest doors from Tuesday when uncle, bestia and I made our wonderful three-stop trip of great variety. This was stop number two. Let’s hear you sing: “This toooown is coming like a ghoooost toooown.” ♫ Celleno in Lazio between Viterbo and Orvieto was abandoned in 1951Continue reading “Thursday Doors 30/9/21: Ghost town Celleno”

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”

Lens-Artists PC: Supernatural light

Leya surprised me again with her choice of theme. Such a natural woman and yet she calls for artificial light. The prettiest thing that Leya says in her post is that candlelight does not count as artificial light. I had a look through my archives and realised that when the night comes, my camera goesContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Supernatural light”

Thursday Doors 16/9/21: Piran

I might have showed most of today’s doors in previous years, but not the lighthouse as I was up there for the first time, and not the Ferrari. This is Piran on the Slovenian coast, the first place Crystal asked to see. These are all from one day, Saturday, September 4. After arriving from TuscanyContinue reading “Thursday Doors 16/9/21: Piran”

Found for Friendly Friday 1

Unlike some I know, I only take found objects with me in the form of visual memory. Here are several such memories from this May onwards. Clearly more than half of my photography is capturing found objects since I had 40 images gathered immediately. Therefore there will be another post for this Friendly Friday challengeContinue reading “Found for Friendly Friday 1”

September 7

I had prepared a draft post for every day my visitors were with us, and this is the last post that I have in my drafts. This means that Crystal and Pedro are off to new pastures – first the ones in Venice – while amore, bestia and I have just returned home to Tuscany.Continue reading “September 7”

Lens-Artists PC: Potential walking

Here are some views of my city of birth Ljubljana, which I am about to show to my special visitors from far away, with the special emphasis on the mountains to show Crystal that we have some too and to give her ideas where all she could be walking. I’d love to, keep walking, butContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Potential walking”

Friendly Friday encounter

Who says that it must be a human? Especially because I tend not to meet many new ones lately. While two humans are incoming from far away – new only in person – here is somebody who cheered me up 100% earlier this month like only members of its species can, even if they don’tContinue reading “Friendly Friday encounter”

Blurs

Here is a collection of unintentional blurs that I find too interesting to delete. Best to gather them together like this and pretend to be an artist. But first, look what a wonderful video Sandy put together of the early years of her, Amanda and me. Find it in her today’s post. There will beContinue reading “Blurs”

Lens-Artists PC: Feet without shoes

Rarely but it happens that I have two posts for one challenge. On Tuesday feet were shoed, today they are shoeless. I remember when Sandy had her hands and feet challenge and a question formed in my mind: In a temple where you are to walk barefoot, is it feasible to do it in shoesContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Feet without shoes”

Friendly Friday’s back to the future

This time our host Amanda has come up with a fascinating way of looking backward and forward at the same time, and she does it splendidly in her host post. Here is my look back with the help of dad’s amazing photography. This theme goes together well with Sandy’s Flashback vlog which she has beenContinue reading “Friendly Friday’s back to the future”

Thursday Doors 19/8/21: Betnava, Maribor

This is one of those posts that transfer you to a place, and doors – doors are always somewhere near. This was last Saturday when I took father to his city of birth. First we stopped at a castle. We start with mom seeing us off and end with the best photo of the bunch,Continue reading “Thursday Doors 19/8/21: Betnava, Maribor”
