$$$$$$

Some say money is funny, others say it’s too tight to mention. Sometimes you earn, sometimes you spend, and sometimes you ripple which for me is worth the most. And so it happened that Matthias, who has kept a few blogs about the Beat Generation and Charles Bukowski, liked my windows so much that he…

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…

You just have to live

You just have to live and life will give you pictures. ~ Henri Cartier-Bresson The quote above, which I reblog from this post by a great photographer Jane Lurie, pretty much sums up photography for me. Even clicking is optional – sometimes my eyelashes flutter instead. Here are five images that life gave me on…

Surrounded by story

This post is an exercise in trying something new, technically speaking. The content is old, pretty and uplifting, even though it’s from a cemetery. Italy is alive in death too. If you click on the photo below, you will see the difference. Alert! Come back here! There are only photos there, no text. As Sara…

WPC: Layered October

All twenty multilayered photos below were taken in the same month. Welcome to October. Seeing that I’m desperately running out of blog space, again, I thought to combine the Weekly Photo Challenge and my Calendar 2016 and show you what October looks like around here. Especially since it is nothing if not layered. My second…

Thursday Doors, September 21 2017

This week we are back to normal. Norm is here, Slovenia is the basketball champion of Europe, and here are some normal doors from Rome. All of these were taken in the same territory, the Monteverde district of Rome around the street Via Folco Portinari which is my base camp when I’m in Rome: the…

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…

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…

CFFC: Rome’s Non-Catholic Cemetery

Cee calls and I deliver: twenty images from the Non-Catholic Cemetery in Rome, a surprisingly cheerful spot, for her Fun Foto Challenge. Not just due to all the flowers. It was April after all. And I know Cee loves flowers too, especially bearded iris, that’s why there are some in all of these photos, or…

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…

WPC: Collaaage

Not often have I an opportunity to provide exactly what the original Weekly Photo Challenge poster asks for. But seeing that I was in Trastevere in Rome last month, ohhhing and ahhhing at the doors, windows, street art and general quirkiness on display, I happened to take the same snap. (Mine is the last in…

Thursday Doors, June 29 2017

Today’s edition of Thursday Doors is a little bit special: it was the first time that I went on a doorscursion with another photographer, and today we both wish to share our Trastevere doors with you. Not that we called it that: that day amore and I met Liz and two other Americans for the…

June

As long as it’s still June – have a double dose of last year’s. I can’t believe how long it took me to get a new month ready for my last year’s calendar. Here it’s June finally, 24 photos instead of 12 – trust me, you won’t even notice – and we are half way…

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…

WPC: Fok-us

“Fok” is something I might say when my super auto point-and-shoot decides to focus on something else than I would. Still, it makes for interesting pairings. I’m quacking from the heat as I’m touristing around new locations with my visitor and my dog who has seen it all and yet gives me the “ARE YOU…
