Cin cin, Flavia!

Getaways with Flavia are the thing I miss the most, if anybody asks. Let’s hope for many more. Just when you get the first friend in Italy (and what a friend!), first the pandemic hits and then she moves to Iraq. By the way, her hotel has just opened, if you wish to visit Basra.Continue reading “Cin cin, Flavia!”

Monday Window: Santa Severa Castle

Since windows are natural companions to doors, whoever loves ones must love the others too. Here are a bunch from the museum in the Santa Severa Castle on the Italian west coast between Rome and me in southern Tuscany. As I was selecting doors from this castle for my last Thursday Doors post, many windowsContinue reading “Monday Window: Santa Severa Castle”

Thursday Doors 13/1/22: Santa Severa 4.

This year looks like a good year for finishing stuff. I try to keep a neat blog but sometimes things are left horribly unfished (and even unfinished). This is the museum inside the Santa Severa castle and its doors. Last summer on my previous blog we finally reached the museum in the third Thursday DoorsContinue reading “Thursday Doors 13/1/22: Santa Severa 4.”

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”

September 2020

Before this September runs out, here are twenty images from last year’s for my Calendar series as is my monthly habit. Every month I look back a year and select twenty photos that will represent this month forever in my mind’s eye and for all of you who choose or happen to pass by. AsContinue reading “September 2020”

Found for Friendly Friday 2

Four days ago I posted part 1, here is the second part of objects that could or could not be art, depending on who you ask. For a variety of reasons I like taking photos of discarded objects by the road here in Italy, which some would call trash, and have been doing it allContinue reading “Found for Friendly Friday 2”

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”

Our Saturday, again

It’s been ten months but finally we managed to have another Saturday together, Flavia and I. Sea walking, lunch, a new town, gelato, laughs and chatter… exactly what we both needed. It didn’t start well since just as I arrived in Cerveteri, our meeting place, I saw Flavia’s message: “Do not come! Dead battery!” LuckilyContinue reading “Our Saturday, again”

Friendly purple Friday

Since Sandy said “purple”, I shall sprinkle some purple rain on my two galleries. The first one includes the sky, a vegetable, flowers, a couple of walls and a drawing of a foot, and the second a surprising amount of purple attire. Curious? Purple raaain, purple raaaain sounds in my head, as I remember myContinue reading “Friendly purple Friday”
