Pic and a Word #285: Tango

Tango will be the death of me “When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way.” ~Wayne Dyer (with thanks to Selma) Dance, dance. It takes two to tango. And if it doesn’t you don’t and you know. I tellContinue reading “Pic and a Word #285: Tango”

Friendly Friday friend

Let’s call him Rory since this is his name. It was not exactly travel, more like a job that brought me to Denmark, but travel around we did, a busload of students and I as a journalist. My last evening in the country, Rory was Irish, a writer and suddenly there. This was not aContinue reading “Friendly Friday friend”

CFFC: Circles and a few wheels

This is a compilation post of the kind that I love doing the most, especially since I don’t recall ever doing a circular gallery in eight years of blogging. I went quickly through all the photos that I took this year (almost 9500) and selected 24 various round shapes that caught my eye. But first,Continue reading “CFFC: Circles and a few wheels”

Lens-Artists PC: United colours of autumn

Today I fondly remember four times when autumn showed itself most clearly to me here in Italy and there in Slovenia. Usually I have a look in the archives for such a challenge and take what calls out to me, but this time I had four days in mind already and only had to searchContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: United colours of autumn”

Thursday Doors 23/9/21: Maribor

Two days before I returned to Tuscany from this year’s summer holidays in Slovenia, I took dad to his hometown Maribor for some maintenance. A certain bridge and swans looked so familiar. This day provided material for three posts already: first there were Thursday Doors from the Betnava Castle where we also found Miss TreeContinue reading “Thursday Doors 23/9/21: Maribor”

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”

Thursday Doors 16/9/21: Piran

I might have showed most of today’s doors in previous years, but not the lighthouse as I was up there for the first time, and not the Ferrari. This is Piran on the Slovenian coast, the first place Crystal asked to see. These are all from one day, Saturday, September 4. After arriving from TuscanyContinue reading “Thursday Doors 16/9/21: Piran”

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”

CMMC: My summer dark greens

This is my first entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge and she would like to see our dark greens, possibly my favourite eye balsam. All my today’s photos were taken this year from June up to now. This has been an exceptionally busy time for me, especially after months and months of low activity. MyContinue reading “CMMC: My summer dark greens”

PPAC: Stožice street art 3

Here is the last part of the mysterious series of photos that I didn’t take. As you will see, the photographer felt increasingly uneasy and got the hell out of there, no matter that there were two more levels to explore. As I explained in part 1 of this series, it is all a resultContinue reading “PPAC: Stožice street art 3”

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”

PPAC: Stožice street art 2

As promised, here is the second part of the photos that I didn’t take from the newly-built ruin between the Stožice Arena and the stadium in Ljubljana where graffiti artists have their picnic. While I’m enjoying Piran with my visitors, let’s look back to mid-August when a series of (non)coincidences brought me in possession ofContinue reading “PPAC: Stožice street art 2”

Vámonos!

Taken with the new used camera Nikon DX in Sovana, with big thanks to the woman in the picture. Instead of zoom it has antizoom and I’ll have to buy a lens for it, but other than that it’s a wicked toy. It immediately made me not just click any more. It’s the little blackContinue reading “Vámonos!”

Last photo of August 2021

This time around the last day of the month was not just a little special, since my friends Crystal and Pedro touched down on the 31st August. I took them to eat sea food in Fiumicino and to see ruins in Ostia Antica. Perfect first day, and even Flavia managed to join us in Ostia.Continue reading “Last photo of August 2021”

Here and now

As I’m off to meet my incoming friends at the airport, here is what they will see when they get here. I may like posting greens and blues, but here and now Tuscany looks like this. Yesterday it didn’t start right, since their first flight was cancelled. I cannot imagine how this must have felt.Continue reading “Here and now”

Lens-Artists PC: Potential walking

Here are some views of my city of birth Ljubljana, which I am about to show to my special visitors from far away, with the special emphasis on the mountains to show Crystal that we have some too and to give her ideas where all she could be walking. I’d love to, keep walking, butContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Potential walking”
