Thursday Doors 15/9/22: Maribor 1

This post is one day late. For the first time in ages, I had nothing yesterday. Not doors, I always have those, I didn’t have the spirit. It’s my last two days in Slovenia. I think it’s been raining for 48 hours. In the night non-stop thunder, which had bestia climbing all over the room,Continue reading “Thursday Doors 15/9/22: Maribor 1”

Day 22 & CFFC: Water

Seven rivers from here and there and some words as long as they still flow.

You can repeat a sound, a word, a phrase, or an image, or any combination ofContinue reading “Day 22 & CFFC: Water”

CFFC: Bridges from there to here

I don’t have that many photos of bridges, thought I as I started to gather them. There were 50 in no time. Here is a (good) half of them.

This day provided material for three posts already: first there were Thursday Doors from the Betnava Castle where we also found Miss TreeContinue reading “Thursday Doors 23/9/21: Maribor”

CMMC: My summer dark greens

This is my first entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge and she would like to see our dark greens, possibly my favourite eye balsam. All my today’s photos were taken this year from June up to now. This has been an exceptionally busy time for me, especially after months and months of low activity. MyContinue reading “CMMC: My summer dark greens”

Lens-Artists PC: Postcards

This – postcards – is what my photos most look like and I’m neither ashamed nor embarrassed by it. A while ago I looked through all the episodes of a certain photography challenge with young candidates dropping out one per episode, with colourful jury presided by Mr. Benetton himself, Oliviero Toscani (I see now thatContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Postcards”
