For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Which Way and for Which Way Photo Challenge, hosted by San at Alive and Trekking This day in my blogging history

Pic and a Word #297: Ljubljana spectacle

Lately I can’t make my poems in any other way than by twisting the letters and shuffling the words around until they stick. But then again – is there any other way? Spectre of man, spectator of mankind, spectacle of yourself, receptacle of others. Spectacular. Today, January 16th, is the birthday of my two happyContinue reading “Pic and a Word #297: Ljubljana spectacle”

PPAC: Prekmurje 2. – Hundertwasser and Hasegawa

My apologies for this post, since this art was not really public. The exhibition was available in exchange for a small fee, and it was not visible from the street. Still, the vibrancy hopefully makes up for it. Here, let me show you. This is a card that I bought at this exhibition. I tookContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 2. – Hundertwasser and Hasegawa”

PPAC: Prekmurje 1. – Robert Jurak

When Marsha asked me recently what my next public art series would be, I still had no idea. And yet today starts a new series from Prekmurje, the region in the NE Slovenia that is a part of the vast Pannonian plain. First comes Robert Jurak, a welder artist. Prekmurje means “the land over theContinue reading “PPAC: Prekmurje 1. – Robert Jurak”

Thursday Doors 6/1/22: Maribor

Since today is my grandma’s birthday, I’m taking you on a door tour through Maribor, her city, where my father was born. It is also Slovenia’s city number 2. We visited her often and I spent many happy times with her, but she died two years before I moved to Tuscany almost nine years ago.Continue reading “Thursday Doors 6/1/22: Maribor”

PPAC: Piran 7 – Art mix

When I was gathering photos for this series, I already knew which photo will be the last in the final post. I’ll let nature win the art contest. But before the last one let’s have a look at all the little and big art pieces in Piran which are not murals, not church art, notContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 7 – Art mix”

Last photo in December

Not matter if it’s crappy, as long as it’s happy. My last camera photo in December was taken on Christmas Eve, of the black nemesis, and I posted it already unaware that it would be the last of the year. I repeat it here as taken, together with the penultimate one. I did however takeContinue reading “Last photo in December”

Happy, healthy, hearty 2022!

And let the black cat dream happily instead of crossing any road. For the last day of the year, here are some recent photos from our Christmas trip to Rome, the first after almost two years. I saw some fruit trees in bloom, and yesterday a mosquito bit me. I saw zero Christmas lights inContinue reading “Happy, healthy, hearty 2022!”

A lion, a dog and a puddle

A little photo memory from this summer in Slovenia. There is always a puddle in front of my parents’ house in Ljubljana. In two weeks in August, between photos #2 and #3, it only got bigger. Bestia approves. (Blogging memories of today are actually yesterday’s, and vice versa. I mixed up the drafts. No worries,Continue reading “A lion, a dog and a puddle”

Complete Calendar 2020

I like to relive the past like this, year after year, month by month, 20 photos at the time. Before the new year can start, I have to deal away with the previous. These were my twelve months of 2020. At the time when people make calendars for 2022, I’m two years behind. What elseContinue reading “Complete Calendar 2020”

PPAC: Piran 6. – Murals

I was glad to see that Marsha put her post up despite the holidays and that she included my last week’s PPAC post among the featured ones. We are not done with Piran yet. Today: street art in four locations. The first two photos I took in 2017 at the Piran primary school’s playground. QuiteContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 6. – Murals”

Auguri, amore!

Like every year you get a grand holiday for your birthday and a tour of our past year in pictures, with best wishes for good health, good mood and good life. This year started off slowly and privately, even more than usual. By April we started to wake up from the pandemic sleep and inContinue reading “Auguri, amore!”

Tuesday Trees

There is no challenge with this name that I know of but it could well be. Today is just the Tuesday to show Suzanne, who celebrates Two weeks of trees, and all of you some trees in my life from my two countries. I have always wished to write a book. In fact, I stillContinue reading “Tuesday Trees”

Lens-Artists PC: La Serenissima

This is a trick title. Neither is this post about Venice, nor am I very serene right now. I’m in pain, my back said it had enough of sitting here all the time. I got pills and cream and hope for the best. Still, only five photos. Ha. I also got a package from SloveniaContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: La Serenissima”

Pic and a Word #294: What travel?

This is how I travel, feet up. The pic is from a previous October but the words are from two days ago and the placement is the same. I haven’t been anywhere since, except brief dog walks. Today I may have been only in our supermarket by the lagoon, choosing chocolate, lettuce, yogurt but I’mContinue reading “Pic and a Word #294: What travel?”

PPAC: Piran 5. – Lighthouse and rocks

Who would think that Piran is such an arty town? This is the fifth post from it for our beloved public art challenge and two more are waiting to be posted. Today we look into and around the tiny lighthouse on the tip of the peninsula. It’s true that you need to a pay aContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 5. – Lighthouse and rocks”

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”

Pic and a Word #293: From the cradle

A cave must have been the cradle of civilisation, agreed? Here is a short ditty in words and a small cave in pictures. From the griddle to the crave from the cradle to the brave from the bridal to the cave from the tidal to the slave. Fun fact: First I had “gradle” in theContinue reading “Pic and a Word #293: From the cradle”
