Thursday Doors 29/9/22: September 2021

I have already showed you my last year’s September in Italy and Slovenia in my two previous posts, only its doors were missing since I’ve been saving them for today. First of all, I wish health and safety to you all. These things are more than just little treats or small mercies. Let them last.Continue reading “Thursday Doors 29/9/22: September 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”

CFFC: Bridges from there to here

I don’t have that many photos of bridges, thought I as I started to gather them. There were 50 in no time. Here is a (good) half of them. I like bridges – crossing them, looking at them, looking from them, the purpose and the idea of them. They are old and new, designed forContinue reading “CFFC: Bridges from there to here”

Lens-Artists PC: Water baby

Yes, I am one, I am drawn to every kind of water and whenever I was asked what I wished to do in life I replied: “I wish to live by the sea.” Here it is, a 12-km sandy beach less than 2 km away. For almost nine years I’ve been living in the southContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Water baby”

Best of Thursday Doors 2021

Since this is the last Thursday Doors post of the year, let’s have 30 of my favourite doors posted in 2021. This year has been spread over two blogs, so the first half and a bit of my Thursday Doors can be found on my previous blog Mexcessive. With August we have all moved toContinue reading “Best of Thursday Doors 2021”

CFFC: Future nostalgic

Isn’t this a brilliant theme? I had one photo in mind immediately and was sure to gather many others. And then… Cee’s post is so cute and I was in such good spirits when I started to look. The first photo I searched out deliberately. It was of a poster we spotted in Padua thisContinue reading “CFFC: Future nostalgic”

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”

CFFC: Circles and a few wheels

This is a compilation post of the kind that I love doing the most, especially since I don’t recall ever doing a circular gallery in eight years of blogging. I went quickly through all the photos that I took this year (almost 9500) and selected 24 various round shapes that caught my eye. But first,Continue reading “CFFC: Circles and a few wheels”

Lens-Artists PC: United colours of autumn

Today I fondly remember four times when autumn showed itself most clearly to me here in Italy and there in Slovenia. Usually I have a look in the archives for such a challenge and take what calls out to me, but this time I had four days in mind already and only had to searchContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: United colours of autumn”

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”
