Day 26 & Lens-Artists PC: Smile and simile

A post with a heart of light and gold today, since the Mavericks won so mercilessly last night. Who’d say that the most joy I’ll be getting will be from a 23-year-old Slovenian having fun playing basketball in Dallas? I almost wrote another poem for Luka (following this one) but that would be an exaggeration,Continue reading “Day 26 & Lens-Artists PC: Smile and simile”

Day 17 & Pic and a Word #309: Dogs

I could write a poem with a line for every dog I’ve ever met… Prompt 17: “This is a fun one – it’s a prompt developed by the comic artist Lynda Barry, and it asks you to think about dogs you have known, seen, or heard about, and then use them as a springboard into whereverContinue reading “Day 17 & Pic and a Word #309: Dogs”

Thursday Doors 10/2/22: Cerveteri 1.

A hop back to August when Flavia and I had our last year’s only getaway. A week or so later she was off to Iraq for work. Ah, how well we did our getaways and how I miss them! So many giggles and jokes, doors for me and windows for her, new places, beauty, freshContinue reading “Thursday Doors 10/2/22: Cerveteri 1.”

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”

Every blogger just starting out should be told this: Do not wait. Start joining challenges immediately or your blog will only be visited by perplexed relatives for a yearContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Five new challenges”

Complete Calendar 2020

I like to relive the past like this, year after year, month by month, 20 photos at the time. Before the new year can start, I have to deal away with the previous. These were my twelve months of 2020. At the time when people make calendars for 2022, I’m two years behind. What elseContinue reading “Complete Calendar 2020”

Our Saturday, again

It’s been ten months but finally we managed to have another Saturday together, Flavia and I. Sea walking, lunch, a new town, gelato, laughs and chatter… exactly what we both needed. It didn’t start well since just as I arrived in Cerveteri, our meeting place, I saw Flavia’s message: “Do not come! Dead battery!” LuckilyContinue reading “Our Saturday, again”

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”
