Thursday birthday doors and stuff 21/7/22

Today celebrates my sister so it won’t be only doors but rather a variety of views that I wish to gift to her right now with heartfelt wishes. Compared to my regular ones this post is a double, but since I do it so rarely these days, you deserve it – my sister, who isContinue reading “Thursday birthday doors and stuff 21/7/22”

May 2021

The selection was not easy, but here are twenty photos from last May for my Calendar. Frankly, I could easily post nothing but twenty photos of poppies, twenty of other flowers, twenty of animals, or twenty from my two day trips. Here is a bit of everything then. May is possibly the prettiest month aroundContinue reading “May 2021”

Last photo of April

Happy May 1st, happy birthday to my other uncle Rajko, happy end of April, happy new moon, and happy beginning of the second round of the NBA playoffs! Today I spent with my visitors from Slovenia, who are travelling around Tuscany, and it felt really good. I can still feel the sun on my face.Continue reading “Last photo of April”

Day 11 & April 2021

Today I look back a year and show you last April in twenty images for my Calendar series, and in the poem talk to a giant floating island of plastics, as one does. Prompt 11: “Following up on yesterday’s love poem, I have for you another deceptively simple challenge. Today, I’d like to challenge youContinue reading “Day 11 & April 2021”

Day Five & Last photo of March

The photo above is the last that I took in March because bushboy asks for it, and in the poem, the murder of peace as it happens. Another soul-stirring poem in the prompt today, Alfredo Aguilar’s “Palomar Mountain” from Waxwing. And let me add another cheerful one: “The Date (Notes to Self)” by Romana Iorga.Continue reading “Day Five & Last photo of March”

CFFC: Birdies

As long as we can still count on the birds and the seasons, it’s going to be alright. Here is a collection of my feathery companions here in southern Tuscany with a nature reserve as a neighbour. Only the last four photos are from elsewhere: two from Rome and two from Slovenia. All except theContinue reading “CFFC: Birdies”

February 2021

It’s that time of month again when I look at the same month last year and choose 20 photos for my Calendar. Meet February, the month when spring comes to town. The only time I ventured out of my municipality, the air by the Orbetello lagoon was full of smoke. Italians like to burn stuffContinue reading “February 2021”

Friendly Friday rule of thirds

My first reaction was to rebel. Then I wished to obey and make my photos really nail the rule of thirds. And then I thought: But why? These are the first three photos that I chose for this post. Then the obedience phase set it. Here is a rose as taken + cropped horizontally +Continue reading “Friendly Friday rule of thirds”

I am not out there either

Ever since the recent not-really-death of Buddhist monk and author Thich Nhat Hanh I keep encountering his thoughts online which make me feel really good. Here is a selection of them equipped with some of my recent photos. The first four quotes are from his Ten Love Letters to the Earth. Click and be transported:Continue reading “I am not out there either”
