PPAC: Piran 3. – Let’s read this place

I am a firm believer in really getting to know a place by reading its walls and other surfaces. Sometimes you won’t like all you learn but at least you’ll know. Not all scribbles that follow are artistic but all have merit in adding soul to the city, no matter what kind this soul turnsContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 3. – Let’s read this place”

PPAC: Piran 2. – Three sculptures

Why don’t we continue our art tour of Piran on the Slovenian coast with three sculptures, one by an Iranian, another by an Argentinian, and the third by two Serbian artists? First this. I have been posting daily since May the 20th. It has come along spontaneously, the idea and the execution, when I decidedContinue reading “PPAC: Piran 2. – Three sculptures”

Friendly Friday: Roma in Piran

This was a brief but friendly encounter on the Slovenian coast five months ago when we went to the bus station to meet my incoming uncle. “Roma!” I heard behind me.

And I don’t mean dog. The other reason for choosing sand over dirt? I mustContinue reading “CFFC: Sandy and shelly”

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”
