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…

Thursday Doors, June 23

Today I finish my Capalbio door series. The first two parts can be found here and here on my first blog. I took these photos in one hour when mom and sister came on a visit in early March. So today let it be not just doors. And on Thursdays this restaurant could give some discount…

WPC: Curve, fattorie and other false friends

This post has so many images that it doesn’t need many words. You can find some in the captions, though. Photo: a © signature mmm production In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: Curve

Happy sixty-ten, mom!

Since I’m with you these days, we better not waste time on computer, right? Therefore just a selection of some of my favourite photos of you, one of your poems and my translation. The last photo is rather revealing of your preferences, which becomes obvious to all who have read your book of poems. Here is…

Thank you for the happy genes

My grandmother on my mother’s side, baca Nada, was born on this day. We always had a blast. Thank you, baca, I’m feeling the happy gene pool, and keeping on filling it. In the poem you liked reciting to me in several languages, beautiful Vida is whisked away to a foreign country. Well… how can I…

Two of us

I believe in you. So that makes two of us. —WRDSMTH (London Street Art as seen in this Critical Dispatches post) Photo: a © signature mmm production

Happy new year, Svemir Zeko

He wrote this to me on my birthday: “Happy New Year.” Same to you, Svemir Zeko, and don’t throw yourself away. Today celebrates my old friend whose name means “Master of the World.” And his surname translates as “Bunny rabbit”. The image above (taken off the line) needs an explanation. There is an old Sarajevo…

SL-WEEK 45: NeighBirds

These birds are arranged in the order from the farthest away from my home to the closest. Actually, I didn’t even have to stand up from my computer for the last one. Photo: a © signature mmm production For Sylvain Landry’s SL-WEEK 45: Birds
