Thursday Doors, December 7 2017

To set the scene: It’s a hot July day in Rome, you take a shortcut to a newly discovered gelato place and they just keep coming. The place is my usual location when in Rome, Monteverde. I posted several shutters from around here already, but they seem to be never-ending. And when I took a…

December

Now that December has arrived, here is a look at the last month of the past year for the final part of my 2016 Calendar. Actually no, the very last act will come later this month as a finale of this blog when I shall choose only one photo from each month in order to…

Thursday Doors, November 23 2017

The Tuscany-Slovenia-Rome rotation of Thursday Doors brings us back to Monteverde, my hood whenever I’m in Rome. Since I have to walk the dog anyway, I might have my camera with me at all times, I say and I do it. I’ve gotten to know all the doors in a neat little circle. The emphasis…

WPC: Well rounded

I might have had this post almost ready before I even saw this week’s WPC theme, but there is something rounded on every photo so it more than fits. After having missed out on the challenge twice for no good reason, I had a glance at this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge theme that has been…

$$$$$$

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. September…

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…
