Lens-Artists PC: Interesting finds

This is what I do, more or less. My camera is always on the lookout for objects of interest, be it in nature or culture. That’s why I’m suffering when nothing new comes along, even though same old means rural Tuscany. I could do many galleries like this one, and I have, and I will.Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Interesting finds”

Lens-Artists PC: January 2021

I had a bit of a problem deciding what to do. Lens-Artists ladies wish to see our favourite photos of 2021 but I don’t know which they are yet. I need to wait until the end of this year to find out. January is the best I can do. You see, since 2016 I’ve beenContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: January 2021”

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”

Lens-Artists PC: I choose

I was really happy to see that this week Tina lets us choose what to post. I’ve just had a wonderful Saturday and wish to show it to you. I went Among Humans again, but it started with a bird. I think I understand now why I don’t do it often, go anywhere out ofContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: I choose”

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”

PPAC: Piran 1. – Church art

This is the first post in my new public art challenge series. We will spend several weeks in Piran on the Slovenian coast and admire its many art forms, styles and shapes. Let’s start with some of its many churches and chapels. Even though my parents have had a house in this small but extremelyContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 1. – Church art”

November 2020

With this Calendar post we begin the six months that were really nothing to brag about. I took less photos than usually. I saw fewer new things. I talked to so few people (in person). I was in the pandemic funk and it started in November. First, before autumn is done: The most wonderful autumnContinue reading “November 2020”

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”

Pic and a Word #284: Vulnerable

“The vulnerable won’t help” is one of those pot idea lines that have stuck. What do you mean you don’t have these? Since I have already written a poem with this title once I will repeat it this time. It was short and not so sweet and posted in April 2018 for NaPoWriMo together withContinue reading “Pic and a Word #284: Vulnerable”

September 2020

Before this September runs out, here are twenty images from last year’s for my Calendar series as is my monthly habit. Every month I look back a year and select twenty photos that will represent this month forever in my mind’s eye and for all of you who choose or happen to pass by. AsContinue reading “September 2020”

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”

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”

Lens-Artists PC: Ups and downs

They say life needs to have its ups and downs, but over here with our visitors it’s been only up up up since Tuesday when they arrived. Let this post show that we look down too. This was our visitors’ last full day in Italy before Slovenia and all these ups and downs happened onContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Ups and downs”

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”
