Lens-Artists PC: January 2021

I had a bit of a problem deciding what to do. Lens-Artists ladies wish to see our favourite photos of 2021 but I don’t know which they are yet. I need to wait until the end of this year to find out. January is the best I can do. You see, since 2016 I’ve beenContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: January 2021”

Pic and a Word #295: Chill, year

A poem, a song, a quote and six photos from today, the first of firsts. Over here the year has started really good. There hasn’t been a single downside about today. Let it last. First, I feel the need for a tune. This one. Have a look at it too. And when you’re done, you’llContinue reading “Pic and a Word #295: Chill, year”

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”

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”

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”

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”

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”

Our Saturday, again

It’s been ten months but finally we managed to have another Saturday together, Flavia and I. Sea walking, lunch, a new town, gelato, laughs and chatter… exactly what we both needed. It didn’t start well since just as I arrived in Cerveteri, our meeting place, I saw Flavia’s message: “Do not come! Dead battery!” LuckilyContinue reading “Our Saturday, again”

Thursday Doors 26/8/21: Ljubljana Stožice

Even for Slovenians, “Stožice” is not the easiest word and then they put it in the name of the newly built Arena (well, from 2010). Ž is pronounced like the second g in garage and the stress is on o. Try it: sto-ži-tze. It is what this part of Ljubljana, a 15 minutes’ walk fromContinue reading “Thursday Doors 26/8/21: Ljubljana Stožice”

Lens-Artists PC: Queen light and Miss Tree

Light is queen but this is Miss Tree 2021. Father and I met her a week ago near Betnava Castle. Unlike photographers this tree cannot move and yet has been catching the best light for 250 years, experts estimate. At first it sounded like another human folly to me, proclaiming a tree the winner ofContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Queen light and Miss Tree”

Thursday Doors 19/8/21: Betnava, Maribor

This is one of those posts that transfer you to a place, and doors – doors are always somewhere near. This was last Saturday when I took father to his city of birth. First we stopped at a castle. We start with mom seeing us off and end with the best photo of the bunch,Continue reading “Thursday Doors 19/8/21: Betnava, Maribor”

The first post

First things first: If you want your blog to have larger captions, you need to pay for it, a WP expert told me yesterday. Beyond silly. After eight years of free blogging? No, I don’t. They wish to make you desperate enough with their lack of options so that you pay. Apparently I have chosenContinue reading “The first post”
