WPC: Her heritage

Today marks one year since I posted my first post on this blog because my first blog was getting full. A good day to view one’s heritage. In one year I managed to fill it up with less than 40% of space remaining. Serves me right for always cramming my posts with too many photos. Can’t help…

Thursday Doors, May 18 2017

What a fly-by week this has been! Before we return back to the basic pack, here is the first part of yesterday’s doors. They were found in the town of Tuscania which is not in Tuscany but in Lazio, to make guessing harder. The last few days have been HOT. Bestia says concrete, or even worse, hot sand,…

Thursday Doors, May 11 2017

Here is the second part of Ljubljana Graffiti Tour doors. Since I posted the first part of Slovenia’s capital doors with the now famous “Submarine Door”, I was notified (with a reward “for believing in us when we were smaller”) that the tour operators have changed their name to Ljubljana Alternative Tours, diversified and started to…

WPC: Reflecthings

Here are some recent reflections: of Rome, of Bestia, of me, of me on Bestia, of trees. Most were taken with the help of the car – which reminds me that for photographic reasons I need to wash the roof too – except the last two are reflections in a puddle. We don’t have many…

WPC: A smoking hot danger!

One of the biggest dangers since it’s so addictive. Imagine the billions this industry is (still) hoarding. And then admit to yourself that you are a non-smoker. Before we look at a very few photos on the subject since it doesn’t deserve more, some other things first. As you may have heard, I have a…

Thursday Doors, May 4 2017

May the 4th be with you and welcome to the weirdest edition of Thursday Doors. A collection of Talamone doors for those who see and seek them. I blame it on “Holy Motors” which I saw yesterday. Are you SURE you want to proceed? Photo: © signature mmm For Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors challenge.

WPC: Wonder lust – Wander list

Yes, I have my wander lust and list too. These are just some of the spots I have crossed out. My list is getting additions on an hourly basis, as soon as I see something appealing on blogs or Tweeter or Facebook. Normally I only include a destination if it’s under 3 hours’ drive from…

Thursday Doors, April 27 2017

Today will always stay in my memory as “The OF Day”, no matter how they call it now. The “OF” or “Osvobodilna fronta” was “The Liberation Front”, Slovenian anti-Fascist organisation that formed in 1941. As the Wikipedia says, “The Slovene Partisans were the armed wing of the Liberation Front, which fought in the beginning as a…

Thursday Doors, April 20 2017

For today’s Thursday Doors we go back to the town of my birth, Ljubljana, Slovenia. It was a cold winter’s day when I took part in the free Ljubljana Graffiti Tour. I told Sandi, the organiser, that I’d got dressed as if I was going skiing and he concurred. At first it was just the two…

WPC: This is Earth calling

I’m going to green you up now. When I started to collect ideas for my Italian trip list (it’s a piece of art, with times required to reach destinations and different colours indicating directions), I found a photographer on Facebook who posted beautiful images marked “Crete Senesi”. Google Maps didn’t recognise it as a place name. Then…

WPC: Sur+prize

It’s best if you take everything as a surprise. After all, If you think about it – it is. I like to say that I don’t have any sense of direction because it’s good to keep getting surprised about where you are. Similarly, I’d never wish or even pay to know what the future holds. Especially…

Thursday Doors, April 13 2017

In the ocean of photos that I’ve taken in the past week, let’s begin with yesterday’s. They just happen to include Siena and its Cathedral. We shall return to Siena on several more Thursdays, but today let’s have a look at the Cathedral, first from the outside and then on the inside where I was for the…

Thursday Doors, April 6, 2017

If you go off the train at the Ostiense station in Rome, you will find all kinds of things going on. The newly hipsterised area called Testaccio has plenty of attractions. “The old cemetery for non Catholic foreigners,” says the plaque by the door. It is also knows as Protestant cemetery or Cimitero degli Inglesi,…

WPC: Dense all days

This is Piran, Slovenia – dense all days. In the best sense possible. But first, as usually in the weekend, past week on my blog. I don’t know if these recaps are useful to anybody, but to me they give a sort of closure and a reminder of how time flies and that another week is gone…

Thursday Doors, March 30 2017

A bit of anniversary and another instalment of doors from “Slovenian Tuscany” which impressed even us who live at the source. On this day three years ago, for some not quite determined reason (but mostly to show my photos and tell stuff to more than my immediate people), I posted my first ever blog post….
