Cin cin, Flavia!

Getaways with Flavia are the thing I miss the most, if anybody asks. Let’s hope for many more. Just when you get the first friend in Italy (and what a friend!), first the pandemic hits and then she moves to Iraq. By the way, her hotel has just opened, if you wish to visit Basra.Continue reading “Cin cin, Flavia!”

PPAC: Forma Viva 2.

Isn’t it inviting on a hot day, this bed of stone? First of all, happy Mother’s Day, mom! In Slovenia, and in the UK too apparently, it’s today. Twenty-three years ago you got a dog as a present, actually three, straight from the trash where we found the entire litter. We gave two away afterContinue reading “PPAC: Forma Viva 2.”

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”

Pic and a Word #301: Cadence

Today a poem, a couple of pics and a medal. In the new game against the Clippers, frustrated with everybody and everything, Luka Dončić scored 45 points but Mavs still lost by two, after which, at around 5 am, I went to bed, quite a bit sour. I dreamed that I was playing cards withContinue reading “Pic and a Word #301: Cadence”

Pic and a Word #300: Studio City

Here is a poem with more than one pic from my city of origin where ugly things are happening. But it looks really lovely. Studio City After 30 years my favourite program on national TV Slovenia, a rare one that still gives a damn and is still worth a damn, is losing funds, collaborators, hopeContinue reading “Pic and a Word #300: Studio City”

Monday Window: Santa Severa Castle

Since windows are natural companions to doors, whoever loves ones must love the others too. Here are a bunch from the museum in the Santa Severa Castle on the Italian west coast between Rome and me in southern Tuscany. As I was selecting doors from this castle for my last Thursday Doors post, many windowsContinue reading “Monday Window: Santa Severa Castle”

Lens-Artists PC: Five new challenges

What a good idea Tina has! Why not bring us closer together by making us join new challenges? I gladly obey. This post answers to five. Every blogger just starting out should be told this: Do not wait. Start joining challenges immediately or your blog will only be visited by perplexed relatives for a yearContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Five new challenges”

CFFC: Curvy & archy

This is Italy for you: curves – from pasta too – and arches. I could easily use only photos from Niki’s Tarot Garden, but there is so much more. Let’s begin there though: Il Giardino dei tarocchi, or the Tarot Garden, is a sculpture park in the south of Tuscany 15 minutes from me whereContinue reading “CFFC: Curvy & archy”

Getaways with Flavia

She has this category on her blog and it’s the best it could be: Getaway with Manja. We had twelve such since December 2019 when we first met for real in Rome. Then first pandemic got in the way and now she is moving far away for a year. I often say that blogging bringsContinue reading “Getaways with Flavia”

Lens-Artists PC: Inspirational post

What inspires me most often? There are other things too, such as doors, but these photos wished to be together like this in this gallery. Who am I to say no? Except our first dog – his photo is from 2007 when he was eight like bestia is now – all these are from theContinue reading “Lens-Artists PC: Inspirational post”
