CFFC: Garden party

I’m not a regular contributor to Cee’s challenges, but sometimes she says just the right word. So when I saw her beautiful gardens for her Fun Foto Challenge, I knew I wished to link photos from this particular Roman garden to her challenge. Photos are from today, lunch too. Buon appetito! Same goes for my new writer’s…

Have mercy, Pereta

This was yesterday. We had a go at all-you-can-eat Tuscan-style in beautiful Pereta. Just don’t believe Google Maps. For if you do, mercy on your soul. Via Roma, 10, Pereta, is the official address of Trattoria da Maria Moretti, but do NOT enter this into your satellite dish, or it will lead you into an unnecessary…

Vision 20/20

And it’s not over yet. This is my sister’s visit in twenty images. Even with a single photo from each location (okay, and a bit more from home) I had to stop myself at 20. It begins and ends with colourful bits to bite with plenty in between, including the first use of bikini this year. Click…

Dog, moon, sis and minestrone

A few serene images from a few evenings ago and a reason why I won’t be going through your posts and posting my own so much these days. Our pack got bigger. And we’re busy eating healthy. And a spa on Sunday. Ahhh. It’s hard-knock life. Photo: © signature mmm

Baccanale

The first day in Piran I spent in its neighbours Portorož (Portorose) and Lucija. It happens. Something completely different. Photo: a © signature mmm production

I’m happy

I don’t always look back. But when I do it looks something like this. The photos are older than the poem. They are from the trip to Lefkas (Lefkada) island in Greece in 2007. The poem is from a recent summer. And the past is in the past where it belongs, only sometimes it raises its…

WPC: Cha-cha-chaos

Another one of those challenges where I had to smack my fingers in order not to exceed my self-imposed limit of twenty images per post. Chaos is all around us, but is it really? Since it’s Sunday, I’ll give you a quick run-down through my last week’s posts first. This week I: gave you an example…

WPC: Transmogrify this!

What I love most about having a blog is that nobody can tell me what to do, because nobody is paying me for doing it. Weekly challenge? I can come up with whatever I wish and nobody can call it silly or off the point. But first, as it’s become a custom, a short walk…

Buon appetito!

The past week went by in a flash, and now I’ve got a house full of parents and won’t be much on here. This is what you might have missed in the last seven days: First I took you down to the secret beach among mindful graffiti in Castiglioncello. Then I returned to the days of…

Maja the Bee

Today I have three anecdotes for you starring the Slovenian designer with whom I used to work. She once called me the best Slovenian editor, so I could be biased, but unlike me she really is the best. She was on the designing team when Slovenian Euro coins were about to be manufactured. Before her meeting in Finland…

WPC: Rare Slovenian sigh(t)s

I’ve collected some images from my recent Slovenian two weeks that made my eyebrows shoot up for a variety of reasons. Let’s see what they are. Photo: a © signature mmm production In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: Rare

Ten easy pieces from here

Finally it’s raining and I can put up some photos as an illustration of my stay in the country of origin. Petra, don’t stop reading! The cake is coming up! I’ve been all over the place and it’s hard to organise thoughts and images. We have been treated so well by my family and friends…

SL-WEEK 51: Happy birthday, Sylvain’s challenge!

It’s good to have anniversaries. They help me realise how time flies. It’s all one big time for me. And yet Sylvain posted his first weekly challenge one year ago. For this occasion I’ve gone through all my entries to select favourite photos from my posts. Doing this I had much fun and could not help but choose also…

Happy birthday, dad!

After having looked at my mother’s side of the family, today is the time for my father’s. After all, today celebrates the missing link between this couple and me – my father. You are responsible for all these lovely childhood images, and pretty much for the fact that I write and take photos. The sound of…
