May 2021

The selection was not easy, but here are twenty photos from last May for my Calendar. Frankly, I could easily post nothing but twenty photos of poppies, twenty of other flowers, twenty of animals, or twenty from my two day trips. Here is a bit of everything then. May is possibly the prettiest month aroundContinue reading “May 2021”

Lens-Artists PC: Shadow heroes

Where I live there is a little park. I needed a while but then I realised what is strange about it: there is not a single bench. But there are tall pine trees that cast great shadows. I’m not a fan of black and photo photos (mine, that is) but I thought this photo ofContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Shadow heroes”

Day 27: Duplex with the dog

Today I wrote my first duplex and the counting down the days of April made me feel like Scheherezade. What if it must never end? And the dog, the dog is always here somewhere. Prompt 27: “Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a duplex. A duplex is a variation on the sonnet, developedContinue reading “Day 27: Duplex with the dog”

Day Seven & Thursday Doors 7/4/22: Villa di Radi 2.

This is the last door post from the open-door day last May when I visited three properties south of Siena in Tuscany. But first, two images and a poem. The first was shared today by a dear friend with this quote: When a great moment knocks on the door of your life, it is oftenContinue reading “Day Seven & Thursday Doors 7/4/22: Villa di Radi 2.”

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”

PPAC: War memorials

I have gathered public monuments to the fallen from Slovenia and Italy of diverse artistry, but always here to make us think. After all, we used to kill each other. Plus there is this poem that I have been writing since Thursday when it all began. Soft War Song It’s the end of War DayContinue reading “PPAC: War memorials”

Wordless Wednesday: Which way signs

Lens-Artists PC: Street treats

Oh, how I love this theme. Here is a selection of most memorable or quirkiest pieces from here, Italy, and there, Slovenia. Art in the street – how marvellous. I’ve always loved it when streets talk and I know the language, but art without words is even more universal and accessible. That said, some wordsContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Street treats”

October 2020, part 2

Here is the second part of my last October as promised. Today’s photos are from two mega trips as a reminder that I must just go. To think about it, October was the last month when we could have any amount of fun out of our municipality for more or less half a year! SoContinue reading “October 2020, part 2”
