June 2021

Before this June gets out of hand and out of sight, here are twenty photos from last year’s in memory of the early hot post-pandemic joys. There were two especially memorable days: when I drove north towards Castiglione della Pescaia to visit a new-to-me artistic garden “Viaggio di Ritorno”, the home and playground of scrapContinue reading “June 2021”

Thursday Doors + CFFC: Door gifts + Lendava Castle

Every door is a gift, every gift is a door, and through its mouth we walk. Today is a rare occasion that my door post most happily answers to two challenges: Dan is our usual Thursday Doors host, whereas Cee, having fun connecting to other challenges, has chosen Thursday Doors to play with this week.Continue reading “Thursday Doors + CFFC: Door gifts + Lendava Castle”

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”

On this day two years ago

On this day in 2019 Flavia and I met for the first time in Rome. We had no idea what the future held and that we would have much fun together, see plenty of Italy, eat lots of goodies, but then the pandemic would arrive and she would move to Iraq where she is now.Continue reading “On this day two years ago”

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”

Pic and a Word #289 & PPAC: The wave of irony

The photos are from Orbetello for Marsha’s PPAC. The poem is a double fib, named after the Fibonacci sequence, for Patrick’s Pic and a Word challenge. That it doesn’t make much sense is a sign of the times. And the waves are for waving. 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13 0 I runContinue reading “Pic and a Word #289 & PPAC: The wave of irony”

Lens-Artists PC: London calling

I choose a place that many of you know and show it through my first digital camera’s eye as seen in 2010 because a Londoner said it was always interesting to see your home city through the eyes of a visitor. It was Sarah, and she picked some extraordinary architecture from North Korea for thisContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: London calling”

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”

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”

CFFC: Twisty or squiggly

Another mighty fun gallery put together for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, ending with my favourite twisty image of all times. I clearly remember posting several twists of fate already, including the last shot of today. It was the post Simple twists of May 2017 when I lost my front tooth to chicken. Today I addContinue reading “CFFC: Twisty or squiggly”
