Lens-Artists PC: Seven times bliss

For today’s post, which answers to two challenges with similar themes, I gather seven times when I felt blissful. I wouldn’t mind revelling in repetition of such times, but most of them were unique. I have a good friend who has just come out of the hospital after almost three weeks of Covid-19 pneumonia andContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Seven times bliss”

Lens-Artists PC: Shapeshifting in style

This is my favourite kind of posts: a compilation of shapes and styles from here, Italy, and there, Slovenia. No wonder I couldn’t stop before I hit 30 photos. I did my best to pair my photos in a way to create some sort of structure, while marvelling at Patti who was able to selectContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Shapeshifting in style”

CFFC: I (can)did it again

I have to search for people in my photos with a torch if you don’t count my tribe. Animals are better represented. Here is a careful selection of 25 times I shot both since my last candid post. It was this one, my Can? Did! post from 2019, and looking at it now I’m amazedContinue reading “CFFC: I (can)did it again”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 5

I’m so glad to see all the support for this series and the joy it brings. And it is not over yet. The series started with this post and today it’s already part five of fix. In this part: plenty of fun and beauty and known and unknown characters, including an encounter with a ladyContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 5”

Friendly Friday flower button

It took me a while to discover the flower button on my point-and-shoot and experiment with what it could do. Now I have a new old Nikon D5000 and it likes to look at the world up close even more. All today’s photos were taken with my first DSLR camera, which I’ve had not yetContinue reading “Friendly Friday flower button”

Lens-Artists PC: Supernatural light

Leya surprised me again with her choice of theme. Such a natural woman and yet she calls for artificial light. The prettiest thing that Leya says in her post is that candlelight does not count as artificial light. I had a look through my archives and realised that when the night comes, my camera goesContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Supernatural light”

Through Crystal’s eyes

All today’s photos were taken by Crystal during her and Pedro’s discovery of my two countries, Italy and Slovenia, in the first week in September. It is with gratitude and big thanks that I’m posting these glimpses from our one week together which proved that things happen if you make them happen, first by ideaContinue reading “Through Crystal’s eyes”

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”

Found for Friendly Friday 1

Unlike some I know, I only take found objects with me in the form of visual memory. Here are several such memories from this May onwards. Clearly more than half of my photography is capturing found objects since I had 40 images gathered immediately. Therefore there will be another post for this Friendly Friday challengeContinue reading “Found for Friendly Friday 1”

September 7

I had prepared a draft post for every day my visitors were with us, and this is the last post that I have in my drafts. This means that Crystal and Pedro are off to new pastures – first the ones in Venice – while amore, bestia and I have just returned home to Tuscany.Continue reading “September 7”
