Love Is First

Here is a pantoum that I wrote recently. I feel April coming up when I’ll do it every day, write a poem. And later, some personal disclosure. Love Is First You learn something, meet somebody, at first it’s always new and good. Every love is first at something, everything you love is first. At firstContinue reading “Love Is First”

Wordless Wednesday: Which way signs

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Which Way and for Which Way Photo Challenge, hosted by San at Alive and Trekking This day in my blogging history

Auguri, amore!

Like every year you get a grand holiday for your birthday and a tour of our past year in pictures, with best wishes for good health, good mood and good life. This year started off slowly and privately, even more than usual. By April we started to wake up from the pandemic sleep and inContinue reading “Auguri, amore!”

CFFC: More or less one colour

As you can see, monochrome is in the eyes of the beholder, and this beholder says: one colour, more or less. Cee’s – who is our host – and Bushboy’s images for this challenge were so vibrant and happy that I immediately wished to go through my archives and make my own post. Here itContinue reading “CFFC: More or less one colour”

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”

Friendly Friday weather

Today’s forecast: A compilation of weathers from here and there for Friendly Friday Sandy. Our most usual weather – clear sky with a rare cloud – is represented the least. So spoiled am I that I notice it only when it’s gone. Two quotations come to mind immediately regarding the weather. Here is the first:Continue reading “Friendly Friday weather”

Lens-Artists PC: Wide world

Going wide? Two weeks ago I wouldn’t even know what you mean. Before (since 2015): The Nikon Coolpix L830 point-and-shoot has a 34x Nikkor optical zoom lens, which is a 35mm equivalent of 22.5-765mm. Now (for the last two weeks): Nikon D5000 has a AF-S DX Nikkor 18-55mm VR Lens. So you see, Patti, it seems that IContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Wide world”

August 2020

This post is for my Calendar 2020 in the making for which I choose twenty photos taken in the same month one year ago. As you are reading this, my uncle, bestia and I are on the way to Tuscany, beating post-holiday traffic, road works, heat, storms (I hope not!), and the like. Just twoContinue reading “August 2020”

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”
