Complete Calendar 2021

Before the new year arrives, I still need to deal not with this one but with the one before. Here is 2021 with one photo per month. As I have done five years before – links to previous calendars are listed below the gallery – here is 2021 as it was originally planned, with oneContinue reading “Complete Calendar 2021”

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. Yes, I am aware that 2023 is just around the corner, but I still needContinue reading “December 2021”

Last photo of July with lens trouble

Yesterday I remembered that it was the last day of the month so I made sure that my last couple of photos make a good piece of evidence of my lens trouble. This is something that has been happening more and more often. Have a look at my penultimate and last July photo: By theContinue reading “Last photo of July with lens trouble”

Mercurial

Here is a nonet I wrote yesterday with nine syllables in the first line and one in the ninth. The photos are old but from the heart and slightly mercurial. Mercurial Nine is the times you cried for my love. Eight times I said no and cried back. Seven was not even when six cameContinue reading “Mercurial”

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!”

I noticed it since I have the first anniversary Thursday Doors post in my blogging memories today.

Pic and a Word #305: The sea

My today’s poem is channelled by the Oracle, as K. calls magnetic poetry, and comes with an old sunset. I haven’t seen anything like this in a while. But first – happy first day of spring! I didn’t know it’s today when I went on my first walk without my winter coat this morning, butContinue reading “Pic and a Word #305: The sea”

March 2021

It’s that time again when I look back a year and select twenty glimpses from the same month a year ago to see what is coming. Looking forward to birds and poppies. The photos have been left in the order as taken on purpose, so that you can stroll through the month with me asContinue reading “March 2021”

Lens-Artists PC: Water baby

Yes, I am one, I am drawn to every kind of water and whenever I was asked what I wished to do in life I replied: “I wish to live by the sea.” Here it is, a 12-km sandy beach less than 2 km away. For almost nine years I’ve been living in the southContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Water baby”
