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:  Advertisements

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…

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,…

Happy birthday, oči B.!

Today celebrates my father. For now we are in different countries but there will be a reunion soon. As I was gathering your photos from the past year, I realised that they were too many to be posted here, even for my exaggerated standards. We had so many lovely together times last year, both in…

Overgrown

Here are some instances of plants on Italian houses. Better overgrown than overblown. These were taken in the last month on our visits to Trastevere in Rome (doors from there coming on Thursday), Orvieto, Civita di Bagnoregio (all these three locations done with my American friends), Porto Ercole, Sassetta, and Ansedonia (all these three done with my…

Vision 20/20

And it’s not over yet. This is my sister’s visit in twenty images. Even with a single photo from each location (okay, and a bit more from home) I had to stop myself at 20. It begins and ends with colourful bits to bite with plenty in between, including the first use of bikini this year. Click…

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…

WPC: Relax, don’t (over)do it

No matter how people predominantly use them for work, to me boats spell relax. But first, a short weekend review of the last week on my blog. To be found: A walk around my immediate vicinity to show you the vineyard colours, green grass and all that occurs this time of year; a selection of windows from our Tuscany 4-town…

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…

WPC: Shiny crazy diamonds

For this challenge I’ve been enjoying collecting images with a certain shine to them. It can come from different sources. And yet, does it really? But first a short recap of the past week: I gave you our local beach.  I showed you our slightly pink flamingos from not so very close up.  I alerted you to…

WPC: My local beach

One of the grandest luxuries of my new home (well, fourth year running) is our local sandy beach. It is 12 km long and less than 2 km away from home. Since it is a part of WWF Nature Reserve, it is wild and in the off-season mostly deserted, if you don’t count optimistic off-shore fishermen….

Thursday Doors, September 22

Castiglioncello is a coastal town about half way from here to Cinque terre in the north, far enough from me that I went there for the first time with my uncle only now. I don’t think we did the usual scenic walk but rather found a graffiti-lined passage to a hidden beach. There is something about the sea…

Return of the Uncle

The return of the Uncle is happening tomorrow. On this occasion I’m posting some of his Nokia phone photos from his most recent visit in May. He is the one who brought you amazing images of Morocco. This is what he saw around here. (Photos enlarge considerably upon clicking.) Photo: © mtc Benvenuto!
