Thursday Doors 20/1/22: Santa Severa 5.

With this post we say goodbye to Santa Severa, that’s why I’m letting several non-door photos take part too, for you to get the feeling of how gloriously this day ended. It was a hot day in September 2020. My uncle was on a visit and we met with Flavia in Tarquinia, from where fourContinue reading “Thursday Doors 20/1/22: Santa Severa 5.”

Five riders and six cypresses

Today I thought of posting one of my contributions that wasn’t excepted by a past Visual Verse edition since I like it anyway. I was wondering which photos would go with six riders. I know, six cypresses, thought I, gathered 10 photos of the same cypress field through the year, and then read my pieceContinue reading “Five riders and six cypresses”

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”

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!”

Lens-Artists PC: I choose

I was really happy to see that this week Tina lets us choose what to post. I’ve just had a wonderful Saturday and wish to show it to you. I went Among Humans again, but it started with a bird. I think I understand now why I don’t do it often, go anywhere out ofContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: I choose”

CFFC: Two colours

Another fun gallery to make for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. The more colours, the better. Today two. I love colours. Last week it was only one, now there are two in every image. Again photos need to words. They were taken in my parents’ garden in Piran, Ljubljana Botanical Gardens, and on walks around myContinue reading “CFFC: Two colours”

Pic and a Word #292: Rocky

Today a real-life poem and photos from the Colosseum, but only from the outside. Inside is just a bunch of rocks. The Colosseum “It’s nothing but rocks,” says he, Rome born and bred. “No, I have never been inside, why would I go?” He still takes me to see it on my first visit, immediatelyContinue reading “Pic and a Word #292: Rocky”

CFFC: More or less one colour

As you can see, monochrome is in the eyes of the beholder, and this beholder says: one colour, more or less. Cee’s – who is our host – and Bushboy’s images for this challenge were so vibrant and happy that I immediately wished to go through my archives and make my own post. Here itContinue reading “CFFC: More or less one colour”

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. I turned and there was the cutest terrier with the fanciest collar ready to meet bestia. Bestia, who is male if anybody still doubtsContinue reading “Friendly Friday: Roma in Piran”

CFFC: Boooooks

Here is a compilation post for Cee close to my heart, with my favourite books and book photos of the last eight years. Just yesterday, as I was reading my first Martin Beck novel, The Laughing Policeman, on my e-reader, Kobo, I realised what is wrong with e-readers. They don’t make me feel the sameContinue reading “CFFC: Boooooks”

Thursday Doors 11/11/21: Ljubljana Bežigrad

Because sometimes you need doors that come with mom. These are the doors and more of Bežigrad in the north of Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia. All today’s photos were taken this summer five minutes or less from my parents’ house which was my home too for 20+ years. Even when I left, my newContinue reading “Thursday Doors 11/11/21: Ljubljana Bežigrad”

Friendly Friday weather

Today’s forecast: A compilation of weathers from here and there for Friendly Friday Sandy. Our most usual weather – clear sky with a rare cloud – is represented the least. So spoiled am I that I notice it only when it’s gone. Two quotations come to mind immediately regarding the weather. Here is the first:Continue reading “Friendly Friday weather”

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”

Thursday Doors 14/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 1.

It was two weeks ago, on the day trip that included the ghost town Celleno and the fairy-tale mural town Sant’Angelo. Before we reached either we stopped at the Fortress of the Popes above Lake Bolsena, where I had never been before. I will have to go back though. The day was murky but theContinue reading “Thursday Doors 14/10/21: Rocca dei Papi 1.”

October 2020, part 1

This has never happened before but now it will. There will be two October posts for my Calendar 2020. I simply couldn’t choose only 20 photos, so another 20 will follow soon. Last October I went on two such mega trips that I could post only photos from those two days. And I will, butContinue reading “October 2020, part 1”

Wordless Wednesday 6/10/21

I don’t have internet connection at home since yesterday and had to sign into WordPress with my phone and post from there for the first time in 8 years, just so I don’t miss my daily post going on since May. Be well and send some good net vibes. Phone sucks. ADD-IT: It’s back. YourContinue reading “Wordless Wednesday 6/10/21”

September 2020

Before this September runs out, here are twenty images from last year’s for my Calendar series as is my monthly habit. Every month I look back a year and select twenty photos that will represent this month forever in my mind’s eye and for all of you who choose or happen to pass by. AsContinue reading “September 2020”

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”

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”
