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: Cha-cha-chaos

Another one of those challenges where I had to smack my fingers in order not to exceed my self-imposed limit of twenty images per post. Chaos is all around us, but is it really? Since it’s Sunday, I’ll give you a quick run-down through my last week’s posts first. This week I: gave you an example…

Thursday Doors, October 6

I’m going to privatise today’s edition of Thursday Doors like some bank and furnish it with my parents who are coming up, or down in this case, right about now. But first, a special kind of Thursday Doors. Thanks, mom, for the idea and the props. I’ll never hold a 50 Euro banknote again without…

Thursday Doors, September 15

Isn’t it nice that you can always count on Norm and Thursdays and doors? Just in time too, so that I can go in search of new ones. These are from the last roaming with uncle in May. Photo: a © signature mmm production For Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors challenge.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Stepstairladders

Stairs are pretty much like doors, or arches, or windows: they follow my glance wherever I go. As for ladders, I didn’t need to go far. Work was in progress, and I got three in one (first photo). From then the tour continues by way of usual suspects: Roma, some Toscana, the Tarot Garden with some wicked…

Thursday Doors, July 21

Since it’s my sister’s birthday today, I’m glad to let her be the photographer behind (or is it before) this week’s Thursday Doors. She loves doors too, you see. Thank you, sis, and cin cin! Photo: KLU For Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors challenge.

Almost forty is a new orange

Today celebrates my zen & funloving sister. I found a fitting card and thought of leaving it at that. Nah, cute but not true. First I’ve gathered together some of my favourite photos that you took while visiting me. I like your views, they are similar to mine but more stressless. Photo: KLU Featured photo: Vatican…

Thursday Doors, July 14

I don’t know if it’s just me, but sometimes doors find me where I’d expect anything but. To set the scene. It’s April, my hiking – not to say mountaineering – friends are visiting, so I choose an easy, two-hour walk between Pitigliano and Sovana, two exceptional towns that I’ve visited often, just never walked from one to…

WPC: Up there in my tree

What all I would have missed if I didn’t look up right then? Photo: a © signature mmm production In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: Look Up

WPC: Curve, fattorie and other false friends

This post has so many images that it doesn’t need many words. You can find some in the captions, though. Photo: a © signature mmm production In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: Curve

What did I do?

This post has been spurred by TheSnowMeltsSomewhere (Else) and her visit to Alien-styled bar and museum in Switzerland. If I was drinking coffee with IT breathing down my neck, I’d feel a bit as I felt in this unassuming but good restaurant in Sovana with this Mom looking down on me. That the cheeky unisex…

Happy new year, Svemir Zeko

He wrote this to me on my birthday: “Happy New Year.” Same to you, Svemir Zeko, and don’t throw yourself away. Today celebrates my old friend whose name means “Master of the World.” And his surname translates as “Bunny rabbit”. The image above (taken off the line) needs an explanation. There is an old Sarajevo…
