WPC: Collaaage

Not often have I an opportunity to provide exactly what the original Weekly Photo Challenge poster asks for. But seeing that I was in Trastevere in Rome last month, ohhhing and ahhhing at the doors, windows, street art and general quirkiness on display, I happened to take the same snap. (Mine is the last in…

WPC: Transient state of love and trust

I thought of celebrating the birthday of my country of origin by giving you some of its capital’s street art since it might not be here any more when you arrive. While the man who sings the song in the title, Eddie Vedder, is about to hit the stage in Florence and I am not…

Happy Space Bunny day!

Today celebrates my friend who, as we learned last year, I call Space Bunny. After you saw last year’s post and this photo, you complained that “Bacila je svemir zeku” does not mean only “She threw the Space Bunny” but can also be translated as “She threw the space to the bunny.” 😀 This is you the first…

Thursday Doors, March 9 2017

Today I’ll let the doors speak for themselves. But if you’re there you hear better. This is Metelkova City in Ljubljana, Slovenia, a proof what people might do if we’d let them. I won’t pretend I know about shooting street art, it was also a late January afternoon, not the best time to do it. I’m just grateful they…

Street smart

My Grandma said: “Steven, here is 5 dollars and don’t tell your mother I’m getting this to you.” I said: “It will cost you more than that.” —Steven Wright Some signs of street smarts from Ljubljana, Slovenia. Photo: © signature mmm

You kiss me into life

I don’t celebrate today in any special way like most of you: instead I just love all the people all the time. And yet the heart symbol will never grow old. And nobody does hearts quite like Niki de Saint Phalle. Her Tarot Garden, Il giardino dei tarocchi, in immediate vicinity tends to see much…

WPC: The story of repurposing

This subject has again made me giddy and it was hard to stick to twenty images. There is just so much repurposing going on all around me. Before the photo story unrevels, I wish to draw your attention to the last week on my blog. It was quite busy. I’ve even managed to more or…

Who’s the real monster?

Monsters cannot be announced. One cannot say: “Here are our monsters,” without immediately turning the monsters into pets. ~ Jacques Derrida (quotation reblogged from raynotbradbury) Click on the first photo to enter the gallery.

Orvieto bench

I was at the Orvieto train station many times, since it’s there where I pick up my guests who come by train, but this bench is a recent discovery. It was made by the members of local rehabilition centre “L’albero delle voci”. I can only say grazie. Photo: a © signature mmm production

WPC: MMMagic

Magic, just like chaos a couple of weeks ago, is where you find it. And if you don’t see the little one, you’re not worthy of the big. But first, the past week on my blog, seeing that this has become a regular weekend feature: I showed you my birthtown Ljubljana in Slovenia; I found a…

Dear Niki

I visited you ten times already. Tomorrow may be 11th. Il giardino dei tarocchi, the Tarot Garden, is where French artist Niki de Saint Phalle was living for a while, creating the world around her. Her accommodation most resembled living in a disco ball, that’s why I’m not surprised to learn that she only lasted…

The Garden of Cosmic Speculation

I don’t like to post stuff that is not mine but in this case there are several reasons why I can’t do it. This garden is in Scotland. There is only one day every year when it is open to the public. This year the day was May 1st. The official site is here. Charles…

MM 3-14: Monochrome Niki Madness

The reason why I chose this particular photograph from the Garden to be black&whited lies in what became apparent once I did it. Considering how many photographs I have taken in Il giardino dei tarocchi, Niki de Saint Phalle’s Tarot Garden which lies in my vicinity, one would think that there are many better ones and one…

Frida is here

I hope that if you are out there and read this, know that I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you. —Frida Kahlo

Supersizing happiness tag

I had to double the happiness dose after Joey kindly dropped my name as someone who makes her happy. Here are my ten favourite things, songs and bloggers to supersize smiles. (Just ten of the) Things that make me happy, alphabetically, with a photo for each: Photo: a © signature mmm production (Just ten of the)…

Suvi’s Statues: Fanor Hernández

I know many of you have some statues stored just itching to be shown, and now Saturdays are the time and Suvi’s challenge is the place and you’ve got almost all week to join. This week I’ve got for you a sculptor whose works don’t lie as if he came from Colombia. Maybe because he…
