Thursday Doors, November 30 2017

Today we return to Piran in Slovenia to have a look at some doors that may or may not come with people attached. First, one image with no people. Not yet. Imagine all the various doors in these tight little streets. And now a slow progression through pairs of doors with and without human company…

Here is a proof that if you omit the verse, poetry ceases to exist. Or even better, everything is poetry already. You just need to write this way. I always find it funny when people say they don’t like poetry. What’s the matter, all that unused blank space bothering you? Yesterday I posted a poem…

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: 

Thursday Doors, September 7 2017

After Joey it’s Dan to the rescue, guest-hosting Norm’s Thursday Doors. For Dan, and all of you, a bunch of green doors. I remember posting a lovely green door once and Dan commented that he doesn’t see green colour all that well. Here are doors in different shades of greenness for him to test his…

Thursday Doors, August 10 2017

Out of endless Piran doors, here are some that caught my eye this time. Yesterday I had a sobering walk through the centre of Ljubljana. It was a vulgar display of availability for money. In comparison, Slovenian coast still has its spirit, at least Piran does. And I’m not talking about the smell of pee,…

Thursday Doors, August 3, 2017

In need of a new door? How about a cinema under the stars with the view? Today’s edition has two parts. Soon after I started posting Thursday Doors, father suggested that if I wanted doors I could go in search of a door-selling shop. I liked the idea but I needed two years or so…

August

Now that August has started, let’s have a look at last year’s for my 2016 Calendar. The first half was spent in Slovenia where I am right now as well. Here is a look at assorted locations.

Nature, nurture and culture

What is required for a perfect summer weekend for 1000. Without much thinking – it’s too hot to think – these three words appeared as common denominators of the 7×3 photos below: a bit of culture, a bit of nourishment and a bit of nature, rolled into last weekend. First we had pizza and beer…

WPC: Satisfactioning me

I wouldn’t know it either, but Elvis says “satisfactioning” is a word. Here are my two weeks, one satisfied day at the time. As you know or could guess from my limited blogging activity, I’ve been travelling in my country of origin which is Slovenia. It’s been most excellent and I feel highly satisfactioned. As…

Thursday Doors, July 27 2017

Today’s doors from the south of Slovenia come with a lunch and a view. I remember well when my friend Aleš – who together with his Mihela, one of my two best university buddies, became a parent half a year ago – posted the door of his family tourist farm on Facebook. I promised him…

WPC: Unusual week

A fully unusual post for me to go with the extraordinary week I’m spending in my country of origin. Bring on three more, and rain. I’m averaging 200 photos daily thus it’s hard to come to grips with them and post some sense. Plus I’m constantly out of time. Plus, strangely, my English feels rusty…

Thursday Doors, July 20 2017

“Čuj ti, v Mariboru si!” (Hey you, you are in Maribor!) A speedy look at some Maribor doors. Second biggest Slovenian city. Father’s birthplace where he is pointing (point at the door, it’s Thursday!). National soccer champion, one step away from the Champions League. Nuff said.

Thursday Doors, July 13 2017

Since I’m off to where it all started this weekend, have a compilation of Slovenian doors. All of these were taken in 2015 or earlier, when I was not (yet so) dedicated to doors. Still, I was already posting them and you may recognise a few. Some of them have emotional value. The last one…

WPC: Florentine Delta

I had a bit of a problem with the theme of this week’s photo challenge. “Delta” only brings the Nile and the Greek letter to mind. Cool IT kids like Liz surely understand (she even gave me a good example based on our last Thursday Doors joint posts: “So, the delta of your post and…

Cin cin, grandpa Janez!

Today celebrates my grandpa Janez, mother’s father, and this is the garden where he taught me how to water the flowers. I’m sorry that I don’t have more photos here, so I’m forced to show you the same ones every year (this was last year). Still, this one is very cute, I might as well…

June

As long as it’s still June – have a double dose of last year’s. I can’t believe how long it took me to get a new month ready for my last year’s calendar. Here it’s June finally, 24 photos instead of 12 – trust me, you won’t even notice – and we are half way…
