Friendly Friday leading cat lines

This post is really an excuse to show Sarah the cats around my home last May. Hopefully certain lines that lead to cats will be noticeable. Whatever you do, never learn photography from me. I promised Friendly Friday Sarah to do my best in finding leading lines in my photos, but then I got distractedContinue reading “Friendly Friday leading cat lines”

Day 29 & Friendly Friday: Travel books

As Sandy teams up with the four ladies who run the What’s On Your Bookshelf challenge on the subject of travel books, I’d like to present three books by three bloggers that I admire. On my penultimate poem of April, I was barely able to nail the poetry series, just like the Mavs. But weContinue reading “Day 29 & Friendly Friday: Travel books”

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 One & Friendly Friday frames

Just like my English, my photography is that little bit wrong. And that’s what saves me. Damn! I just realised that after eight years and six free blogs, WordPress has reduced my free upload space from 3 GB to 500 MB! Thanks for nothing!! I started this blog in August and am at 100% already.Continue reading “Day One & Friendly Friday frames”

Friendly Friday gardens

Yesterday I showed you some doors from one of them, today a brief tour of all three gardens in Tuscany as visited last May on an open-door day. Since Friendly Friday guest host Sofia wishes to see our gardens and since I don’t have one, here are three that I visited just in time, lastContinue reading “Friendly Friday gardens”

Last good Friendly Friday

Oooops, I didn’t mean to say that in the title. There will be others! But Sandy wishes to know about the last good things we ate, saw and laughed at in recognition. When I saw Sandy’s Friendly Friday task, I REALLY planned to post only one photo per question, alas… You can guess the rest.Continue reading “Last good Friendly Friday”

Friendly Friday serenity search

Here is my Friendly Friday serenity which only a carefully worded post can ruffle. Is it true? Do I refuse to choose? Yes, I have found my serenity, no search required. You can see it regularly in the photos on my blog and in this post. At least I hope this is what my photosContinue reading “Friendly Friday serenity search”

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”

Friendly Friday Festivus

For our Festivus party I have gathered our holiday treats and one tradition, unless you count eating sea food on Christmas Eve among traditions and you should. In Italy they are serious about it. Do you know what Festivus means? If not, you weren’t watching Seinfeld or forgot all about it as I must have.Continue reading “Friendly Friday Festivus”

Friendly Friday: Roma in Piran

This was a brief but friendly encounter on the Slovenian coast five months ago when we went to the bus station to meet my incoming uncle. “Roma!” I heard behind me. I turned and there was the cutest terrier with the fanciest collar ready to meet bestia. Bestia, who is male if anybody still doubtsContinue reading “Friendly Friday: Roma in Piran”
