Calling colours

If you look at the main page of my blog, you will notice that things have been a bit lacklustre lately. Time to call in the colours. Lest we (this is royal we, meaning I) forget: I need only to look up and it’s symphony. This is how the daily drive home from the railway…

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, 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…

September

“September is for this sort of things,” sing Slovenian band “Melodrom”. Let’s look at last year’s to see what is coming. Here are twelve images from last September for my Calendar 2016. The visitor was the same as this year’s: he brought me from Slovenia and has just left. As you will see, last year…

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…

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…

This was yesterday…

…but now it’s all covered again and a storm is coming. Enjoy yesterday instead. I went on a walk with Bestia and caught some lovely views, including wall-high waves splashing against the boardwalk, peculiar pink-blue sunset and a line of clouds just above the horizon. Today it’s a whole new story with dramatic clouds over…

Coast to coast

This was yesterday’s coast to coast Slovenian style. Of course, we only have one, a short one at that. The road trip took us from Piran via Ljubljana, where we greeted sister, uncle and my fir tree, and then continued to Maribor on the other side of the country, second biggest Slovenian city and the…

Letting the sun go down

All colours in four minutes. Not a fire, just the sun saying goodbye for now. This was about ten days ago on the road, as I was taking my parents home from Orvieto where they had gotten off the train. The colour depended on how much I zoomed in and how far from the sun I pointed. As…

Four years in eight minutes

It was on this day four years ago that I landed in Tuscany. For a reason, not just for a season. The best way to round it up is thus: Time moves slowly, but passes quickly. ― Alice Walker (quotation reblogged from Logical Quotes) Amore agrees: it doesn’t seem like four years at all. I…

Vision 20/20

And it’s not over yet. This is my sister’s visit in twenty images. Even with a single photo from each location (okay, and a bit more from home) I had to stop myself at 20. It begins and ends with colourful bits to bite with plenty in between, including the first use of bikini this year. Click…

Little terrazza

Hello, people! I’m waving from the top of the “Skyscraper” building. Here are some dear views of Ljubljana. The terrazza, from where I took these photos in early January, has its own evergreen song: “Little terrazza, underneath Ljubljana. We went to the top of the Nebotičnik (=Skyscraper) to forget the sad room we live in, too small…

Yesterday’s spectacle

First I noticed a strange glow and then I ran outside. Sometimes I forget it’s showtime. Photo: a © signature mmm production

WPC: A tiny problem

In photos, a sunrise and a sunset combined and the full moon from two months ago. The one coming on Monday will be bigger but still tiny in comparison to almost everything else. But first, one hundred words that burst out today: “We’ve got a tiny problem, Jefe.” “Yeah, which one now?” said _____. He opened…

WPC: Shiny crazy diamonds

For this challenge I’ve been enjoying collecting images with a certain shine to them. It can come from different sources. And yet, does it really? But first a short recap of the past week: I gave you our local beach.  I showed you our slightly pink flamingos from not so very close up.  I alerted you to…
