Thursday Doors 19/1/23: Rome – Monteverde 2.

This is indeed a door post, even though the featured photo is of the first blooming tree I ever saw on Christmas. Not quite true: on previous Christmas I saw the same fruit tree in bloom, just that the photos I took were rather bad. Monteverde, the hospital and residential area of Rome, is whereContinue reading “Thursday Doors 19/1/23: Rome – Monteverde 2.”

January 2022

Here we go, back in time for one year again. This is the beginning of my seventh Calendar series. It’s true that I don’t take as many photos as I used to, but finding twenty last January photos that I wish to gather in this post was not hard. It starts with the first photoContinue reading “January 2022”

Thursday Doors 12/1/23: Rome – Monteverde 1.

Here are some doors and views from Rome, taken one year ago. Nothing fancy nor old, just doors well used and well lived. Monteverde, the district of Rome where amore’s father lives, reminds me of New York, not that I’ve ever visited it. It’s multicultural, not particularly rich and not particularly clean. It has greenContinue reading “Thursday Doors 12/1/23: Rome – Monteverde 1.”

December 2021

Here we go, the last month of the year is here and with it my twelfth but not yet last calendar post. Before the year is through, I will select one photo per month for the final Calendar 2021 post.

Thursday Doors 12/5/22: Green doors of Italy

I set out to find green doors in my archives and immediately had 50 photos from one year alone. That’s why today Italy, Slovenia next week. Last week K. mentioned in a comment to my post that she liked green doors and I was reminded of the green door post I did once before. IContinue reading “Thursday Doors 12/5/22: Green doors of Italy”

Thursday Doors 5/5/22: Capalbio

You have seen this town and most of its doors already but the photos are new. On Sunday I hopped up with my passing visitors and clicked around while they climbed the tower. Sunday was lovely. Yesterday you saw the poppies we found, and today you will see our nearest town, Capalbio on the hill,Continue reading “Thursday Doors 5/5/22: Capalbio”

For Alenka and all Taurus people

Since I am a Taurus myself, with my birthday coming up in two weeks, I seem to get along with others like me the most. Today celebrates my first internet friend who I have met in person, and not just once. What are we like, if you didn’t know? Down to earth, outspoken, determined (someContinue reading “For Alenka and all Taurus people”

Day 28 & Thursday Doors poem

Because it’s Thursday, because my friend asks me what doors mean to me, and because we are to shape up our poem today – the shape can be only one. Prompt 28: “Write a concrete poem. In brief, a concrete poem is one in which the lines are shaped in a way that mimics theContinue reading “Day 28 & Thursday Doors poem”

Day 26 & Lens-Artists PC: Smile and simile

A post with a heart of light and gold today, since the Mavericks won so mercilessly last night. Who’d say that the most joy I’ll be getting will be from a 23-year-old Slovenian having fun playing basketball in Dallas? I almost wrote another poem for Luka (following this one) but that would be an exaggeration,Continue reading “Day 26 & Lens-Artists PC: Smile and simile”
