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:  Advertisements

WPC: Waiting pays off

It is always good to leave some room for waiting. For the sun. For the miracle. For you to come along. “I’m a patient boy,” sang Fugazi. “And I wait and I wait and I wait.” Here is a previous post with examples of waiting from my life that includes this song. Not just me, the…

WPC: Fok-us

“Fok” is something I might say when my super auto point-and-shoot decides to focus on something else than I would. Still, it makes for interesting pairings. I’m quacking from the heat as I’m touristing around new locations with my visitor and my dog who has seen it all and yet gives me the “ARE YOU…

Cincincincilla, mom!

A year has passed since your big party, which is still the talk of the town, and now you’re deep into the 80’s, as your friend friendlily noted. Not an easy thing to believe, right? No wonder the waiter at your party last year thought we were all joking. Just look at you! Below are…

Apocalyptically yellow

Never one to count ill omens or signs of the beast or whatever, but this yellow and that Qatar bode no well. And now those bees in Rome too. To explain and depict what I meant yesterday by our landscape having gone apocalyptically yellow, here is my environment and what is happening to it after…

Here and now

Keep passing the open windows. ― John Irving (Quotation reblogged from Logical Quotes) Or take them with you. These photos were taken just earlier on my way from the vet where Bestia got his regular maintenance. I stopped the car, opened the windows and clicked first left and then right. I think there might be…

Cin cin, Taja and sloni!

Not that I believe in horoscope, but I know my favourite kind of women: Taurus girls. It takes one to know one. And right about now we are starting to celebrate our birthdays, with one of the Three Graces leading the way (the third one is a Fish, however, and had hers yet): This post…

Happy March 8!

Throwing flowers at favourite women because it’s today. They are coming over too, my two favourite women, first one and then the other. Party! And now let’s see how spring flowers come rolling in around here. No matter how many marches it takes, before we’re allowed to be free. Photo: © signature mmm

April

According to my calendar, it’s time for April. But first the last week on my blog lest we forget: For last week’s solitude challenge I describe five times when I felt most alone in the past and give you present photo evidence of how pretty solitude can be; I show you Piran on the Slovenian…

March

Lest we forget: I’m putting together a calendar for last year with twelve photos for each month. Today it’s March madness time. I had the first visitors of the year then and we had plenty of lovely views and good time. Photo: a © signature mmm production January is here. February is here. April is here. May is here….

WPC: New old (un)level horizon

The quotation below is not to say that I think my photos are perfect or even centred. They merely strive to be as close to nature as possible, and will continue to do so. Somehow I believe she got it right the first time. One does not walk into the forest and accuse the trees of being…

WPC: Every time is this time of the year

“Every time of year is this time of the year for me. It’s just November 25th. Not going to start celebrating anything yet, neither buying. My post will be about that. Thank you for the inspiration.” This was my yesterday’s comment to this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge post. The whole world is not celebrating anything except…

Return of the Uncle

The return of the Uncle is happening tomorrow. On this occasion I’m posting some of his Nokia phone photos from his most recent visit in May. He is the one who brought you amazing images of Morocco. This is what he saw around here. (Photos enlarge considerably upon clicking.) Photo: © mtc Benvenuto!

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Stepstairladders

Stairs are pretty much like doors, or arches, or windows: they follow my glance wherever I go. As for ladders, I didn’t need to go far. Work was in progress, and I got three in one (first photo). From then the tour continues by way of usual suspects: Roma, some Toscana, the Tarot Garden with some wicked…

WPC: Up there in my tree

What all I would have missed if I didn’t look up right then? Photo: a © signature mmm production In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: Look Up
