Thursday Doors, December 14 2017

Not only doors today, also windows and walls, but freshly baked. LJ woman reports. Apart from the last door, which you saw in my previous post yet, all of these were taken yesterday after my dentist’s appointment which cost me one tooth, with my mouth numb, wrangling my umbrella, wiping snowflakes off the lens and…

Day won

Day one of days won over here. Only took eight photos today and posting five of them already. I like this percentage. I wonder if it will hold. Photo: © signature mmm

Home-hopping

Hail hail all who have homes, and countries, to hop between. Rolling over into Slovenia of origin tomorrow. Below are the three places in Slovenia that I can call home. Snow is supposed to greet us but it should warm up again. And then back to Rome for Christmas and home to Tuscany for New…

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 30 2017

Today we return to Piran in Slovenia to have a look at some doors that may or may not come with people attached. First, one image with no people. Not yet. Imagine all the various doors in these tight little streets. And now a slow progression through pairs of doors with and without human company…

47 Up

Today something a bit different: a musing on life, humanity and ageing, spurred by the “Seven Up” series. I don’t know how many of you have seen the films or heard of the Seven Up project. Just a week ago I knew nothing about it but then I watched “Life Itself”, the biopic on film…

Something fishy

Since it was 4 degrees C this morning (39.2 F) here in Tuscany and amore found ice on the windshield (*gasp*), here are some summery fishy motifs from Piran in Slovenia. I knew they would come handy in the deepest winter (khmmm). It’s surprising (not really – it’s a coastal town) how many fish and…

Thursday Doors, November 9 2017

It’s August and we are back in Ljubljana, Slovenia, the city where all was happening to me until almost five years ago when I just had to move to Tuscany. I’m almost certain that Ljubljana understands. Unless, of course, it doesn’t and decided to punish me. This is where we stopped a few Thursdays ago,…

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…

Thursday Doors, October 12 2107

After an entire week without a single blog post we are back to Maribor and its doors. I don’t have any excuse, really. I’ve been blogging regularly for 3+ years and this is the longest I’ve been without a post. For the last few days I’ve been feeling flu-ely but it’s not just that. Blogging…

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…

Thursday Doors, September 28 2017

Today I take you to my birth town, Ljubljana in Slovenia, to see some of its doors and one funny graffiti. If I can find it. It was hot this August. Most of my holidays in the country of origin I spent by the sea but I managed to reach the capital too. It’s only…

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,…

Bring your game

Or why some think that Slovenians can’t have nice things: we break everything. But things change, sometimes with a bang such as we are witnessing now. I’m writing this on the day of the finals: tonight undefeated team Slovenia and (once defeated) team Serbia will play in Istanbul for the crown of European male basketball….
