Thursday Doors 19/5/22: Green doors from Slovenia and Trieste

I made it! With this post my one year of daily blogging is complete. With this post we have made the full circle of one year together. Thank you for all your visits and words! I’ll be posting less from now on through the summer but will still drop by, for example on Thursdays. BeContinue reading “Thursday Doors 19/5/22: Green doors from Slovenia and Trieste”

Day 12 & Lens-Artists PC: Bokeh

Today’s poem and photos go together especially well, since the poem describes the process of achieving my first deliberate bokeh. Still can’t pronounced it though. I shall describe and show the process first and my poem will follow. Be patient, please. First I saw our host Sofia’s post. Her photos have lovely blurred backgrounds –Continue reading “Day 12 & Lens-Artists PC: Bokeh”

Day One & Friendly Friday frames

Just like my English, my photography is that little bit wrong. And that’s what saves me. Damn! I just realised that after eight years and six free blogs, WordPress has reduced my free upload space from 3 GB to 500 MB! Thanks for nothing!! I started this blog in August and am at 100% already.Continue reading “Day One & Friendly Friday frames”

Lens Artists PC: Closer and closer

Since Patti wishes that we step closer, this is what I or my camera will do in this post seven times. These photos have something in common: they were all taken last March just around the corner. This is the third post with photos from that month. Who would have thought that one quarantine monthContinue reading “Lens Artists PC: Closer and closer”

Friendly Friday serenity search

Here is my Friendly Friday serenity which only a carefully worded post can ruffle. Is it true? Do I refuse to choose? Yes, I have found my serenity, no search required. You can see it regularly in the photos on my blog and in this post. At least I hope this is what my photosContinue reading “Friendly Friday serenity search”

Lens-Artists PC: Low light x3

When I first saw this week’s theme, set by our new host Sofia, I grumbled a little on the inside. Low light is when I put my camera away. But then I had an idea… First a quick note, for those who are counting: Today Slovenia won silver in ski-jumping team event! This is medalContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Low light x3”

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”

Wordless Wednesday 17/11/21 – New lens testing

Lens: new Tamron 18-200. Camera: new old Nikon D-5000. Location: home and Southern Tuscany around it. Lesson: don’t wield that sun visor wildly. 😀

PPAC: San Gimignano

After eight years in Tuscany maybe it’s time to visit San Gimignano, I said to myself, packed uncle and bestia on Thursday and off we went, after a lovely stroll by the Elsa river. As everything in Italy it was full of art and surprisingly full of people. San Gimignano, two hours NW from me,Continue reading “PPAC: San Gimignano”

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”
