70 mi je godina tek

Excuse my use of foreign tongue in the title, but this is my uncle saying that today he turns only 70. Welcome to the rhyming party! First, the original song from the title: “You are only 17”, a classic from the Yugoslavia times. The majority of 35 photos in this post (readers are lucky thatContinue reading “70 mi je godina tek”

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”

Thursday Doors 2/12/21: Sant’Angelo di Roccalvecce

Many of you will remember this town with fairy-tale murals from my recent public art series. And if you don’t, this is an invitation. There are some doors that I’ve got saved. This is a small but surprisingly vibrant town in Lazio north of Rome between Viterbo and Orvieto. As I was choosing which photosContinue reading “Thursday Doors 2/12/21: Sant’Angelo di Roccalvecce”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 6

Here it is, the final part of my fairy-tale town series. It is a special place, especially if you have kids but adults will be entertained as well. Thank you for all the joy, Sant’Angelo di Roccalvecce! This is a town that clearly knows what it is doing. In 2017 they started with the firstContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 6”

Lens-Artists PC: Five days in a life

Friday was like most days. All I did was walk the dog: right in the morning light, left as the sun sets. The other four days were more active. They were the only ones in the last two months when I went somewhere else. Amy’s challenge is actually called A Day of my Week soContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Five days in a life”

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”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 4

Our stroll around the little but picturesque town Sant’Angelo in the Province of Viterbo moves into its second half with this post where we again meet some familiar faces, tails and tales. For a town which I imagined would end around post 2, Sant’Angelo kept spreading in a fully unpredictable manner. Even us grown-ups, thatContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 4”

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”

PPAC: Sant’Agnelo 3

Today’s public art post, the third with fairy-tale murals from Sant’Angelo, comes with a little reality check. As I write this (Friday, 5 pm), we have had no internet connection in home for the last twenty-four hours. And on Wednesday we were again without water most of the day. These problems are not related, neitherContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Agnelo 3”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 2

As promised, here is the continuation of our visit to a town of which I only learned because Facebook assumed correctly that I’d like it. I hope you do too as there will be four more posts from here. Fairy-tales forever! The only thing I regretted was that I was not carrying a child orContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 2”

PPAC: Sant’Angelo 1

Today a new series begins from the town in Lazio called Sant’Angelo. Here are the first 15 minutes of our Tuesday visit when uncle, bestia and I went fairy-tale hopping. For Tuesday I had planned three stops in places from my list that were new to me: first Montefiascone above Lake Bolsena (check, the viewContinue reading “PPAC: Sant’Angelo 1”
