Only too much is enough

This is my message to you, Aleš, in the last minutes of your birthday with images from the last day we spent together in Ljubljana, our hometown. Only the featured photo is not from there but from Piran, your favourite town where we often had mussels and wine even before my parents got lucky and…

Turning headers

This is a quick post with my six randomised headers. Say what? Simple: Here are six photos that run at the top of my blog’s front page whenever I’m not featuring Thursday Doors, Weekly Photo Contest posts or something other. Lest we forget, my blog runs under the headline Eye spy, love speak, Volkswagen, or…

WPC: Windowing

What’s new? Windows 10 but also twenty windows right here. As if the word got around that I’m finally getting Windows 10 this weekend… With it came a small dose of bitching – for example, they took the font of my watermark away. Why? They also considerably changed my beloved Windows Photo Gallery. I’m pretty…

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: 

Gold

Here there are, cups for Slovenia and its basketball team who are the champions of Europe. No matter how the best two players couldn’t play till the end of yesterday’s finals, which two minutes before the end was still undecided: the youngest hurt his ankle in the middle of the third quarter and couldn’t return,…

Thursday Doors, Sept. 14 2017 – guest host

This week I’m stepping in for Norm as the host of our regular Thursday Doors challenge. Door lovers of the world, welcome! Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by…

Thursday Doors, September 7 2017

After Joey it’s Dan to the rescue, guest-hosting Norm’s Thursday Doors. For Dan, and all of you, a bunch of green doors. I remember posting a lovely green door once and Dan commented that he doesn’t see green colour all that well. Here are doors in different shades of greenness for him to test his…

WPC: Structurally speaking

When I saw this week’s WPC theme, I had to think hard. Didn’t we just had something like it? I had to check. It was “texture”. I think I might be consufing the two. Be as it may, it’s always a good excuse for posting a bunch of photos. Not that I lack any. If…

Thursday Doors, August 31 2017

Today, with Joey at the Thursday Doors hosting position, we shall be in flowers. And pots and plants. I don’t know about you, but Slovenians, when they get drunk, claim to be “in flowers”. No, I’m not drunk, merely slightly euphoric. The reason for that and for a slightly late posting is the first Slovenian…

WPC: Ooh, shiny on!

Since my blog is more or less nothing but a collection of shinies that stop me in my tracks, here is just more of the same. I know that my last three WPC posts have featured Piran on the Slovenian coast but it’s where I am right now, averaging 100 photos per day. I’m glad…

Hey, ma and pa

Not the kind of symbolism I’d connect to my parents… Another one of those things I’d never believe if somebody had told me. A couple of Slovenian singers has done their takes on parents. Jani Kovačič sings “a fridge is my mother, my father is a TV set”. Pero Lovšin had his version: “My mother…

WPC: Elements in Piran

Forty-five minutes in the life of a Piran sunset. Sunsets, especially as deep in tone as this one, are hard not to photograph: constantly changing, overwhelming, and yet as cliché as they come. And yet, sorry not sorry, I’m using this week’s Photo Challenge to show you twenty images from an evening ten days ago when…

Thursday Doors, August 10 2017

Out of endless Piran doors, here are some that caught my eye this time. Yesterday I had a sobering walk through the centre of Ljubljana. It was a vulgar display of availability for money. In comparison, Slovenian coast still has its spirit, at least Piran does. And I’m not talking about the smell of pee,…

WPC: Textures of Piran

Another happy compilation post that I like so much. Texture might denote something more palpable than some of my photos show, but to me these twenty images express the most tangible summer surfaces and materials. When it’s winter again, I’ll only need to glance at them to recall the heat wave and the good moments…

Thursday Doors, August 3, 2017

In need of a new door? How about a cinema under the stars with the view? Today’s edition has two parts. Soon after I started posting Thursday Doors, father suggested that if I wanted doors I could go in search of a door-selling shop. I liked the idea but I needed two years or so…

August

Now that August has started, let’s have a look at last year’s for my 2016 Calendar. The first half was spent in Slovenia where I am right now as well. Here is a look at assorted locations. Photo: © signature mmm My 2016 Calendar: January is here. February is here. March is here. April is here. May is here. June is here. July is here. The…
