Wordless Wednesday with more than four colours

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Four Colors or More This day in my blogging history (Actually tomorrow, December 30th)

On this day two years ago

On this day in 2019 Flavia and I met for the first time in Rome. We had no idea what the future held and that we would have much fun together, see plenty of Italy, eat lots of goodies, but then the pandemic would arrive and she would move to Iraq where she is now.Continue reading “On this day two years ago”

Thursday Doors 9/12/21: Holiday doors

Today a mix of happy doors with a cheer, a tree, a light, a bird or a bestia. I’m really glad that I forgot to post these two special door gifts from Oregon last week since they fit perfectly in today’s post. Every day when I’m gifted a door is a holiday. Crystal sends theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 9/12/21: Holiday doors”

Lens-Artists PC: 18 images/18 stories

I smiled a little when I saw what Leya envisioned for her One Image/One Story challenge: “Pick one or two, maybe three?” Ahh, how cute. Three is a lonely number. How about other 15. This is how I do it every time. If a little story unfolds when I look at a photo, I know:Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: 18 images/18 stories”

Dear parents, well done!

As another year is being added to your union, let’s celebrate you and the fortune that is to be born near you. Luckily, I don’t need to study this question too hard, because you two indeed met and took care of my face and all the rest. Here are some of the loveliest photos thatContinue reading “Dear parents, well done!”

Lens-Artists PC: Shapeshifting in style

This is my favourite kind of posts: a compilation of shapes and styles from here, Italy, and there, Slovenia. No wonder I couldn’t stop before I hit 30 photos. I did my best to pair my photos in a way to create some sort of structure, while marvelling at Patti who was able to selectContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Shapeshifting in style”

Lens-Artists PC: London calling

I choose a place that many of you know and show it through my first digital camera’s eye as seen in 2010 because a Londoner said it was always interesting to see your home city through the eyes of a visitor. It was Sarah, and she picked some extraordinary architecture from North Korea for thisContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: London calling”

Thursday Doors 4/11/21: San Gimignano

San JimmyJano, JohnRH called it in a comment to my Tuesday’s post, and I find it hilarious. Here it is, my first time in this small but highly touristy Tuscan town this September. When uncle and bestia and I went on our first autumn daytrip, I chose this famous multi-tower town on purpose as ourContinue reading “Thursday Doors 4/11/21: San Gimignano”

Lens-Artists PC: Weird is wonderful

Frankly, half of posts on my blog could have this title. For me, weird is absolutely wonderful and here is a collection of moments, finds and finally us being wonderfully weird, because Leya asked for it. There is art, architecture, some statues, a funny name, some dogs, a snake (yes, yes, a real snake), anContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Weird is wonderful”

Lens-Artists PC: Extra ordinary

Our guest host I. J. gives us a tricky theme this week: the ordinary. My camera is used to catching abnormalities and the extraordinary. Where is the border between the usual and the unusual? At first I was not sure what to go after. I opened the folder of my first year in Italy, 2013.Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Extra ordinary”

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”

Getaways with Flavia

She has this category on her blog and it’s the best it could be: Getaway with Manja. We had twelve such since December 2019 when we first met for real in Rome. Then first pandemic got in the way and now she is moving far away for a year. I often say that blogging bringsContinue reading “Getaways with Flavia”

PPAC: Stožice street art 3

Here is the last part of the mysterious series of photos that I didn’t take. As you will see, the photographer felt increasingly uneasy and got the hell out of there, no matter that there were two more levels to explore. As I explained in part 1 of this series, it is all a resultContinue reading “PPAC: Stožice street art 3”

Vámonos!

Taken with the new used camera Nikon DX in Sovana, with big thanks to the woman in the picture. Instead of zoom it has antizoom and I’ll have to buy a lens for it, but other than that it’s a wicked toy. It immediately made me not just click any more. It’s the little blackContinue reading “Vámonos!”

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 with shoes

Leya surprised me with her theme of feet and shoes and then my archives surprised me with the quantity of available images. There are so many that this is merely Post 1. I’d never guess how many feet shots I own. The last photo I took especially for this challenge. Today the galleries are two:Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Feet with shoes”

CFFC: Big blue

Blue is the second colour in my scheme, right after green. Here are twenty blue photos, a lovely blue door in my blogging history, and just in – a lovely flesh hand-made postcard from New York from Kerfe. Even better than a medal. K. sent it a while ago, and this post of hers isContinue reading “CFFC: Big blue”
