Thursday Doors 3/11/22: Ischia di Castro 2.

A church, some flowers, a dog and doors doors doors. Let’s continue our stroll through one more small Italian town, Ischia di Castro, which started last week on my blog and happened one month ago. This was the last time I saw something new. The places I like the most don’t care whether you stopContinue reading “Thursday Doors 3/11/22: Ischia di Castro 2.”

Last photos of June

Isn’t this a case of good timing! While there may be only flowers as the last photo on my camera, my phone provides something special. First, the flowers: And here are my last two photos on my phone since I didn’t pack my camera to The Game on purpose. I knew I’d be otherwise occupied.Continue reading “Last photos of June”

Team spirit

Just a recent poem today with some unrelated orange photos to make the Suns feel better. Team spirit Can you feel it? Sing, singe, synergy. Team spirit – knowing that nothing beats synergy – trumps teen spirit – thinking you are the only one who can. So what if now you can only sway insteadContinue reading “Team spirit”

Just flowers

My favourite kind of flowers are those that are still growing. All these were growing last May here in southern Tuscany. Okay, the Ukraine had to win the Eurovision Song Contest. And now I’m so extremely interested in seeing whether the league and the system will let Luka and the Mavs win tonight and eliminateContinue reading “Just flowers”

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”

For Alenka and all Taurus people

Since I am a Taurus myself, with my birthday coming up in two weeks, I seem to get along with others like me the most. Today celebrates my first internet friend who I have met in person, and not just once. What are we like, if you didn’t know? Down to earth, outspoken, determined (someContinue reading “For Alenka and all Taurus people”

Day 25 & Pic and a Word #310: Petal

Today is the Liberation Day in Italy, and in my poem two ladies of the marshes are fighting for my body and soul. I have a nice memory from last year’s Liberation Day. We drove to the lagoon again after being locked into our municipality for ages, but the supermarket was closed and we wentContinue reading “Day 25 & Pic and a Word #310: Petal”

Day 15 & Friendly Friday beneath our feet

Here is a collection of things under my feet in photos and another of things I don’t care about in the poem. April halfway done! Prompt 15: “This one may seem counter-intuitive, but today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem about something you have absolutely no interest in. This isn’t quite theContinue reading “Day 15 & Friendly Friday beneath our feet”

Day 12 & Lens-Artists PC: Bokeh

Today’s poem and photos go together especially well, since the poem describes the process of achieving my first deliberate bokeh. Still can’t pronounced it though. I shall describe and show the process first and my poem will follow. Be patient, please. First I saw our host Sofia’s post. Her photos have lovely blurred backgrounds –Continue reading “Day 12 & Lens-Artists PC: Bokeh”

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”
