November 2021

Before the month runs out, it’s time for my monthly Calendar post. Here is last November in twenty images plus two special photos from this year. Let’s start with a photo that my uncle in Ljubljana sent me almost three weeks ago, of his Japanese maple in all its November splendour. Next, today is theContinue reading “November 2021”

Seven days in last September

When I started choosing photos from September 2021 for my monthly calendar post, I realised it won’t go as easy. The first week was so busy that it deserves its own post. This is it. The proper September 2021 post will follow soon, and on Thursday there will be doors only from this eventful month.Continue reading “Seven days in last September”

Last photo in November

This time I knew exactly what day it was as I was strolling with bestia. The last day. So I had to pay attention to the last thing. Here it is, Monte Amiata on the right with a fresh coat of snow, untouched. Bushboy’s rules are simple:1. Post the last photo on your SD cardContinue reading “Last photo in November”

Thursday Doors 25/11/21: Santa Fiora 2.

Last week we came to this pretty town with a fish farm in its middle, today we climb the hill to the old town and find a most excellent meal. And doors are always nearby too, except when they are hidden by flowers so pretty that you don’t mind it at all. Since I willContinue reading “Thursday Doors 25/11/21: Santa Fiora 2.”

Thursday Doors 18/11/21: Santa Fiora 1.

This is the first of two Santa Fiora door posts from my first time there in early September. I chose this lovely sounding and looking town to show it to my two visitors from Oregon sight unseen and we weren’t sorry. This is chestnut territory below Monte Amiata, the highest peak of lower Tuscany, whichContinue reading “Thursday Doors 18/11/21: Santa Fiora 1.”

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: Five days in a life

Friday was like most days. All I did was walk the dog: right in the morning light, left as the sun sets. The other four days were more active. They were the only ones in the last two months when I went somewhere else. Amy’s challenge is actually called A Day of my Week soContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Five days in a life”

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”

Through Crystal’s eyes

All today’s photos were taken by Crystal during her and Pedro’s discovery of my two countries, Italy and Slovenia, in the first week in September. It is with gratitude and big thanks that I’m posting these glimpses from our one week together which proved that things happen if you make them happen, first by ideaContinue reading “Through Crystal’s eyes”

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”
