Home-hopping

Hail hail all who have homes, and countries, to hop between. Rolling over into Slovenia of origin tomorrow. Below are the three places in Slovenia that I can call home. Snow is supposed to greet us but it should warm up again. And then back to Rome for Christmas and home to Tuscany for New…

Thursday Doors, October 12 2107

After an entire week without a single blog post we are back to Maribor and its doors. I don’t have any excuse, really. I’ve been blogging regularly for 3+ years and this is the longest I’ve been without a post. For the last few days I’ve been feeling flu-ely but it’s not just that. Blogging…

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: 

Bring your game

Or why some think that Slovenians can’t have nice things: we break everything. But things change, sometimes with a bang such as we are witnessing now. I’m writing this on the day of the finals: tonight undefeated team Slovenia and (once defeated) team Serbia will play in Istanbul for the crown of European male basketball….

WPC: Satisfactioning me

I wouldn’t know it either, but Elvis says “satisfactioning” is a word. Here are my two weeks, one satisfied day at the time. As you know or could guess from my limited blogging activity, I’ve been travelling in my country of origin which is Slovenia. It’s been most excellent and I feel highly satisfactioned. As…

Happy 4T, sista!

Today celebrates my sister and she celebrates big. We are going to party as if it were 1999. You were 22, perfect. You heard it on the radio, you seen it on the TV show. A to the K? 4 to the mother****ing T. Before we crash your party in a few hours with 100 songs,…

Thursday Doors, July 20 2017

“Čuj ti, v Mariboru si!” (Hey you, you are in Maribor!) A speedy look at some Maribor doors. Second biggest Slovenian city. Father’s birthplace where he is pointing (point at the door, it’s Thursday!). National soccer champion, one step away from the Champions League. Nuff said.

Coast to coast

This was yesterday’s coast to coast Slovenian style. Of course, we only have one, a short one at that. The road trip took us from Piran via Ljubljana, where we greeted sister, uncle and my fir tree, and then continued to Maribor on the other side of the country, second biggest Slovenian city and the…

Thursday Doors, July 13 2017

Since I’m off to where it all started this weekend, have a compilation of Slovenian doors. All of these were taken in 2015 or earlier, when I was not (yet so) dedicated to doors. Still, I was already posting them and you may recognise a few. Some of them have emotional value. The last one…

WPC: A good match these days is hard to find

STILL, WHAT FOLLOWS ARE ENOUGH MATCHES TO LIGHT TWENTY FIRES. AND ONE SCARY GRAPH. First, as usually, here is the past week on my blog in bullet-points, which is better than bullets. There were: A photo story of my transfer from Slovenia to Italy with no regard to odds; an almost 360 degree view of Ljubljana from the Skyscraper and…

WPC: The story of repurposing

This subject has again made me giddy and it was hard to stick to twenty images. There is just so much repurposing going on all around me. Before the photo story unrevels, I wish to draw your attention to the last week on my blog. It was quite busy. I’ve even managed to more or…

Peace, baca

Today is the birthday of Baca Zana, my paternal grandmother. Since her husband passed away on her birthday of all days, she stopped celebrating it long before she followed him. Today father visited their grave with his brother. There is a bit of snow. Peaceful. Photo: BM & MM

Kamnikfolija

I continue just where I left you, at the last door in my last post. These photos cannot wait any longer, it was just so beautiful, and I need an eye rest. Around me everything is yellow. It reminds me of this puzzle: why do we call Greenland green when it’s icy and Iceland an ice land if it’s…

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…

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Found-ains

I admit, I like fountains a lot. Must be the dog in me. And collecting some of my favourite fountain photos I realised that they are not so very different. That is, until small Slovenian town Žalec builds the first beer fountain in Europe. Plans are made and it’s a go. Just keep the dogs away….
