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”

PPAC: Prekmurje 2. – Hundertwasser and Hasegawa

My apologies for this post, since this art was not really public. The exhibition was available in exchange for a small fee, and it was not visible from the street. Still, the vibrancy hopefully makes up for it. Here, let me show you. This is a card that I bought at this exhibition. I tookContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 2. – Hundertwasser and Hasegawa”

PPAC: Piran 7 – Art mix

When I was gathering photos for this series, I already knew which photo will be the last in the final post. I’ll let nature win the art contest. But before the last one let’s have a look at all the little and big art pieces in Piran which are not murals, not church art, notContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 7 – Art mix”

Last photo in December

Not matter if it’s crappy, as long as it’s happy. My last camera photo in December was taken on Christmas Eve, of the black nemesis, and I posted it already unaware that it would be the last of the year. I repeat it here as taken, together with the penultimate one. I did however takeContinue reading “Last photo in December”

Pic and a Word #295: Chill, year

A poem, a song, a quote and six photos from today, the first of firsts. Over here the year has started really good. There hasn’t been a single downside about today. Let it last. First, I feel the need for a tune. This one. Have a look at it too. And when you’re done, you’llContinue reading “Pic and a Word #295: Chill, year”

Happy, healthy, hearty 2022!

And let the black cat dream happily instead of crossing any road. For the last day of the year, here are some recent photos from our Christmas trip to Rome, the first after almost two years. I saw some fruit trees in bloom, and yesterday a mosquito bit me. I saw zero Christmas lights inContinue reading “Happy, healthy, hearty 2022!”

A lion, a dog and a puddle

A little photo memory from this summer in Slovenia. There is always a puddle in front of my parents’ house in Ljubljana. In two weeks in August, between photos #2 and #3, it only got bigger. Bestia approves. (Blogging memories of today are actually yesterday’s, and vice versa. I mixed up the drafts. No worries,Continue reading “A lion, a dog and a puddle”

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”

PPAC: Piran 6. – Murals

I was glad to see that Marsha put her post up despite the holidays and that she included my last week’s PPAC post among the featured ones. We are not done with Piran yet. Today: street art in four locations. The first two photos I took in 2017 at the Piran primary school’s playground. QuiteContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 6. – Murals”

Auguri, amore!

Like every year you get a grand holiday for your birthday and a tour of our past year in pictures, with best wishes for good health, good mood and good life. This year started off slowly and privately, even more than usual. By April we started to wake up from the pandemic sleep and inContinue reading “Auguri, amore!”

Tuesday Trees

There is no challenge with this name that I know of but it could well be. Today is just the Tuesday to show Suzanne, who celebrates Two weeks of trees, and all of you some trees in my life from my two countries. I have always wished to write a book. In fact, I stillContinue reading “Tuesday Trees”

PPAC: Piran 5. – Lighthouse and rocks

Who would think that Piran is such an arty town? This is the fifth post from it for our beloved public art challenge and two more are waiting to be posted. Today we look into and around the tiny lighthouse on the tip of the peninsula. It’s true that you need to a pay aContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 5. – Lighthouse and rocks”

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”

PPAC: Piran 4. – Safet Zec

I would like to apologize for the sadness of today’s post, but sadness can be beautifully portrayed as well. Especially if you are from Bosnia, a country with its fair share of sadness but also joy. This summer Bosnian painter Safet Zec displayed 50 works from his cycles Exodus and Embraces in eight locations inContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 4. – Safet Zec”

Thursday Doors 9/12/21: Holiday doors

Today a mix of happy doors with a cheer, a tree, a light, a bird or a bestia. I’m really glad that I forgot to post these two special door gifts from Oregon last week since they fit perfectly in today’s post. Every day when I’m gifted a door is a holiday. Crystal sends theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 9/12/21: Holiday doors”

Lens-Artists PC: Celebrating good times

I will privatise this post and show you happy moments with my family and with amore and his family, as we celebrated birthdays, Christmases, New Year’s Eves, victories, weddings, marriages and farewells. Except this year and the last there was nothing except one major online party for my 50th. We start with some of myContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Celebrating good times”

PPAC: Piran 3. – Let’s read this place

I am a firm believer in really getting to know a place by reading its walls and other surfaces. Sometimes you won’t like all you learn but at least you’ll know. Not all scribbles that follow are artistic but all have merit in adding soul to the city, no matter what kind this soul turnsContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 3. – Let’s read this place”

Lens-Artists PC: 18 images/18 stories

I smiled a little when I saw what Leya envisioned for her One Image/One Story challenge: “Pick one or two, maybe three?” Ahh, how cute. Three is a lonely number. How about other 15. This is how I do it every time. If a little story unfolds when I look at a photo, I know:Continue reading “Lens-Artists PC: 18 images/18 stories”
