Only too much is enough

This is my message to you, Aleš, in the last minutes of your birthday with images from the last day we spent together in Ljubljana, our hometown. Only the featured photo is not from there but from Piran, your favourite town where we often had mussels and wine even before my parents got lucky and…

Admit it, I could be showing you just a handful of doors and towns in a loop and you wouldn’t even know it. True, they start to blend one into the other after a while but this only allows you to notice little differences. This is Castagnetto Carducci, another small town on the top of…

$$$$$$

Some say money is funny, others say it’s too tight to mention. Sometimes you earn, sometimes you spend, and sometimes you ripple which for me is worth the most. And so it happened that Matthias, who has kept a few blogs about the Beat Generation and Charles Bukowski, liked my windows so much that he…

Turning headers

This is a quick post with my six randomised headers. Say what? Simple: Here are six photos that run at the top of my blog’s front page whenever I’m not featuring Thursday Doors, Weekly Photo Contest posts or something other. Lest we forget, my blog runs under the headline Eye spy, love speak, Volkswagen, or…

Calling colours

If you look at the main page of my blog, you will notice that things have been a bit lacklustre lately. Time to call in the colours. Lest we (this is royal we, meaning I) forget: I need only to look up and it’s symphony. This is how the daily drive home from the railway…

Thursday Doors, October 12 2107

After an entire week without a single blog post we are back to Maribor and its doors. I don’t have any excuse, really. I’ve been blogging regularly for 3+ years and this is the longest I’ve been without a post. For the last few days I’ve been feeling flu-ely but it’s not just that. Blogging…

For the Dying Town, as it’s called, Civita di Bagnoregio in Umbria (ADD-IT: actually in Lazio by some 10 km) feels surprisingly alive and welcoming, even in the heat. When Liz from Fetching the World – who showed you some doors from here already – told me that one of the towns she wanted to…

You just have to live

You just have to live and life will give you pictures. ~ Henri Cartier-Bresson The quote above, which I reblog from this post by a great photographer Jane Lurie, pretty much sums up photography for me. Even clicking is optional – sometimes my eyelashes flutter instead. Here are five images that life gave me on…

WPC: Windowing

What’s new? Windows 10 but also twenty windows right here. As if the word got around that I’m finally getting Windows 10 this weekend… With it came a small dose of bitching – for example, they took the font of my watermark away. Why? They also considerably changed my beloved Windows Photo Gallery. I’m pretty…

Thursday Doors, September 28 2017

Today I take you to my birth town, Ljubljana in Slovenia, to see some of its doors and one funny graffiti. If I can find it. It was hot this August. Most of my holidays in the country of origin I spent by the sea but I managed to reach the capital too. It’s only…

Surrounded by story

This post is an exercise in trying something new, technically speaking. The content is old, pretty and uplifting, even though it’s from a cemetery. Italy is alive in death too. If you click on the photo below, you will see the difference. Alert! Come back here! There are only photos there, no text. As Sara…

Caldana style

I found this trio of Caldana snaps as I was going through last October photos for my yesterday’s post and wanted to post all three. Caldana was the first town with the autumn sagra that we visited with my parents. Three more followed in a single day. That’s Tuscany for you. I especially liked this…

WPC: Layered October

All twenty multilayered photos below were taken in the same month. Welcome to October. Seeing that I’m desperately running out of blog space, again, I thought to combine the Weekly Photo Challenge and my Calendar 2016 and show you what October looks like around here. Especially since it is nothing if not layered. My second…

Thursday Doors, September 21 2017

This week we are back to normal. Norm is here, Slovenia is the basketball champion of Europe, and here are some normal doors from Rome. All of these were taken in the same territory, the Monteverde district of Rome around the street Via Folco Portinari which is my base camp when I’m in Rome: the…

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Can-did

Because I can, I did: twenty candid people photos (+ one animal) black’n’whited for Cee’s challenge. Click on the first to enter the gallery. I think we are all cute, but if anybody requests, I’ll remove the photo. Photo: © signature mmm + featured photo by BM + me on lake by MarMež For: 

Gold

Here there are, cups for Slovenia and its basketball team who are the champions of Europe. No matter how the best two players couldn’t play till the end of yesterday’s finals, which two minutes before the end was still undecided: the youngest hurt his ankle in the middle of the third quarter and couldn’t return,…
