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…

Thursday Doors, June 29 2017

Today’s edition of Thursday Doors is a little bit special: it was the first time that I went on a doorscursion with another photographer, and today we both wish to share our Trastevere doors with you. Not that we called it that: that day amore and I met Liz and two other Americans for the…

What a happy day!

Even though Fonzie was left in good care, we spent a particularly happy day in Rome with three new friends, with both East and West Coast represented. Just as I was complaining about lack of human company. But first, as usually on the weekend, a recap of the past week on my blog. There were:…

Thursday Doors, March 23 2017

Again some Roma’s doors at night. Add your own colours, texture and focus. The night before last Christmas I had a brilliant idea to take some photos of doors at night. We were strolling along Viale di Trastevere in Rome on our way back from dinner and they were just there. Since your reactions to the…

Thursday Doors, January 19 2017

Let’s try to not see too much symbolism in these dark doors before us, va bene? These atmospheric photos were all taken in one night in one street, Viale di Trastevere in Rome. They make us all colour-blind, not able to see clearly and feel complicit. Do you want more? There is the second part…

Happy birthmas!

Some people get Christmas presents, others get Christmas babies. You were such a baby. Another friend is due right about now – and Christmas will never be the same… How it must have been for your mother to have the first child today on all days? Yesterday we had a lovely evening in Trastevere and most…

CFFC: My Entrances and Doors

Since I take photos of doors all the time for Norm’s Thursday Doors (and for myself) as it is, here is a selection of favourite previously published ones for Cee and her fun challenge. Since this is a special occasion, here are more then twenty photos which is my usual limit. I think I’ll make…

Five drabbles

A drabble, as I do it, is an exactly 100-word story, not counting the title. Five follow. Most of them were already posted on my first blog but I wish to have them on this one as well. There is something about this limitation that fulfils my need. Set limits to your child, or she…

Thursday Doors, June 2

Since today Italia celebrates 70 years of being a republic, here are some more doors from Roma. There might be a passage among them, I was not particular. Or a window. Or – what is that, a lover flap? One would think that after having taken so many doors photos, my levels would be level, but…
