WPC: Atop of the morning to ya

The title goes well with yesterday’s Fiesta, whereas the photos are two apiece from different tops I have climbed in my two countries. But first the last week on my blog lest I forget. There were quite a few topics: Last week’s subject of “wish” had me running for a pretty little church; I told you…

WPC: Top ten roads taken

I love this week’s Photo Challenge theme: The Road Taken. So that it’s not always just her wicked stepsister. We can moan all we want, imagine what could have happened to the moon and back, and yet there is nothing more useless than wondering about the road not taken. As if we could ever go back and…

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.

Three January Monday windows

On this cold Monday, two windows from Ljubljana and one photo taken today back home in Tuscany where it’s almost as cold as in Slovenia. In Rome fountains are dripping icicles. In Croatia the Adriatic Sea is freezing, there is snow on Mount Ilija on Pelješac peninsula where we used to roam, and the Neretva river…

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…

Surfin’ Ansedonia

Last week I went on an expedition, even though it was not the most well-lit day. I never knew I could spy on surfers and boar less than 15 minutes from my home. Our 12-km beach doesn’t get waves that would attract surfers, it seems, or at least I never caught them out. You must know…

CFFC: My Entrances and Doors

Since I take photos of doors all the time for Norm’s Thursday Doors (and for myself) as it is, here is a selection of favourite previously published ones for Cee and her fun challenge. Since this is a special occasion, here are more then twenty photos which is my usual limit. I think I’ll make…

Thursday Doors, October 6

I’m going to privatise today’s edition of Thursday Doors like some bank and furnish it with my parents who are coming up, or down in this case, right about now. But first, a special kind of Thursday Doors. Thanks, mom, for the idea and the props. I’ll never hold a 50 Euro banknote again without…

Future on the wall

Today Awa on the Road reminded me of my first visit to Roma and Vatican four years ago. On the wall of the Vatican Museum I took a photo of the map of my future neighbourhood, I just didn’t know it yet. After all, it was only the first time I met my internet friend. We…

Hunting season

Obviously, a new hunting season has just commenced. How do I know? Because I have to deal with a dog trying to climb furniture, break into a wall or at least perch on my pillow, or even better, head. There is not much I truly despise, but people who consciously hurt or damage other living beings…

WPC: What frames you?

I love these kind of challenges where I can curate and create one little personal exhibition. Once I start browsing my archives, I soon gather a bunch of images to the theme, but I don’t stop. I keep looking through the latest, and then I remember an old one, and ohh, look at this one, and I…

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…

Thursday Doors, July 21

Since it’s my sister’s birthday today, I’m glad to let her be the photographer behind (or is it before) this week’s Thursday Doors. She loves doors too, you see. Thank you, sis, and cin cin! Photo: KLU For Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors challenge.

Almost forty is a new orange

Today celebrates my zen & funloving sister. I found a fitting card and thought of leaving it at that. Nah, cute but not true. First I’ve gathered together some of my favourite photos that you took while visiting me. I like your views, they are similar to mine but more stressless. Photo: KLU Featured photo: Vatican…

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
