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, July 14

I don’t know if it’s just me, but sometimes doors find me where I’d expect anything but. To set the scene. It’s April, my hiking – not to say mountaineering – friends are visiting, so I choose an easy, two-hour walk between Pitigliano and Sovana, two exceptional towns that I’ve visited often, just never walked from one to…

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

WPC: Partners, and very rarely panthers

All partnerships are sometimes pantherships, that is to say – beastly. Let’s see who they can consist of: Photo: a © signature mmm production (unless otherwise indicated in the caption) In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: Partners

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….

SL-WEEK 48: Silhouette

I’ve just returned from Slovenia with a slight fever (and too many photos) and I can’t brain, therefore just a few slight silhouettes. First the last one taken during our stroll around Ljubljana which is such an amazing city that you really can’t believe it until you see it for yourself. More photos coming up in…

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…

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…

WPC: Ju-balance

For the first Weekly Photo Challenge on my new blog I’ve selected several images displaying a wide range of jubilance. Many of these are also forecasts of future posts. Coming up, for example: uncle’s visit to Morocco, a selection of boat photos, a visit to a shell cemetery in Slovenia, a visit to an ordinary, surprisingly uplifting cemetery…
