WPC: Elements in Piran

Forty-five minutes in the life of a Piran sunset. Sunsets, especially as deep in tone as this one, are hard not to photograph: constantly changing, overwhelming, and yet as cliché as they come. And yet, sorry not sorry, I’m using this week’s Photo Challenge to show you twenty images from an evening ten days ago when…

Thursday Doors, August 10 2017

Out of endless Piran doors, here are some that caught my eye this time. Yesterday I had a sobering walk through the centre of Ljubljana. It was a vulgar display of availability for money. In comparison, Slovenian coast still has its spirit, at least Piran does. And I’m not talking about the smell of pee,…

WPC: Textures of Piran

Another happy compilation post that I like so much. Texture might denote something more palpable than some of my photos show, but to me these twenty images express the most tangible summer surfaces and materials. When it’s winter again, I’ll only need to glance at them to recall the heat wave and the good moments…

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.

WPC: Satisfactioning me

I wouldn’t know it either, but Elvis says “satisfactioning” is a word. Here are my two weeks, one satisfied day at the time. As you know or could guess from my limited blogging activity, I’ve been travelling in my country of origin which is Slovenia. It’s been most excellent and I feel highly satisfactioned. As…

Day one of Piran

All this was yesterday. We arrived safely after an eight-hour drive and I wanted to swim. Mom took her child to the beach. Photo: © signature mmm

The Spying Reserve

Welcome again to the nature reserve on the Slovenian coast where you can spy on wildlife and find ready-made frames for your images. In this heated, dry weather here in the south of Tuscany, as we are waiting for some rain to green back the landscape after it has gone apocalyptically yellow, I thought a memory from cooler…

WPC: Dense all days

This is Piran, Slovenia – dense all days. In the best sense possible. But first, as usually in the weekend, past week on my blog. I don’t know if these recaps are useful to anybody, but to me they give a sort of closure and a reminder of how time flies and that another week is gone…

Five windows of my soul

All these five windows must reflect some of my soul, or why else would they, out of all windows, draw my camera’s attention? Let’s have a closer look. These photos were all taken along Slovenian coast on the same day. Have a good Monday! Photo: © signature mmm

Thursday Doors, January 5 2017

I’m glad to present the first 2017 edition of Thursday Doors. The featured door is the most like me: broad, dishevelled, of uncertain age, unclear what it wants to be, most certainly not parallel, and yet charming and instantly win-me-overable (hehe). If you are a door and you need a review – be my guest. And…

Thursday Doors, December 29

These doors are fresh from the oven (as my Christmas biscuits from Siracusa will be soon – they were so popular that I’m having my second go at them). Today was lovely: first we went to the nature reserve Škocjanski zatok – first three photos – and then we visited Izola, another town on (short)…

Baccanale

The first day in Piran I spent in its neighbours Portorož (Portorose) and Lucija. It happens. Something completely different. Photo: a © signature mmm production
