Bottlebrush progression

May is the month when bottlebrush (Callistemon) starts to bloom around here in Tuscany and one bush is conveniently placed in a garden just behind our home. This is how it went last May. And if you are impatiently waiting to flower, think about what Denise Riley wrote about it in the essay “Lyric Shame”Continue reading “Bottlebrush progression”

Lens-Artists PC: Water baby

Yes, I am one, I am drawn to every kind of water and whenever I was asked what I wished to do in life I replied: “I wish to live by the sea.” Here it is, a 12-km sandy beach less than 2 km away. For almost nine years I’ve been living in the southContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Water baby”

PPAC: Stožice street art 1

Today starts a series of three street art posts from Ljubljana with photos that were mysteriously left under my doormat. Really. It starts with the sign that would make happy a certain demographic. As it is, in Slovenian pot means path and such signs are all along the 30 km (20 miles) circle around Ljubljana,Continue reading “PPAC: Stožice street art 1”

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”
