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…

Overgrown

Here are some instances of plants on Italian houses. Better overgrown than overblown. These were taken in the last month on our visits to Trastevere in Rome (doors from there coming on Thursday), Orvieto, Civita di Bagnoregio (all these three locations done with my American friends), Porto Ercole, Sassetta, and Ansedonia (all these three done with my…

Eyes of a church

Monday windows from three churches I’ve visited recently – one in Siena and two in Rome. Here are two windows from each church: the first two from the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls, the middle two from the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere, both in Rome, and the last colourful two from…

Win-win-dows

This single one-day trip to Goriška Brda, “Slovenian Tuscany”, carefully planned by strategic mom’s cousin, has been a source of numerous photos and posts. And it’s not the end. I had to move to another country and return to be able to visit it for the first time. I didn’t even know Slovenia had its…

Three wisdom windows

Or window wisdoms, your choice. Apply as necessary, they are all true. Forgiveness is giving up all hope of having had a better past. ~Anne Lamott There is no such thing as paranoia. Your worst fears can come true at any moment. ~Hunter S. Thompson (quotation reblogged from Zenkatwrites’s Blog) If you would avoid all fools…

Signs of spring in Rome

Here you have it, twenty signs of spring from this weekend in Rome. When in Rome I often don’t visit the usual tourist spots but instead wander around residential areas. Here are twenty views of plants, windows and balconies of Rome’s Monteverde district. On Saturday it was almost summer (first nine photos), on Sunday it was…

6xRay Windows

It’s neither x-ray windows nor my Russian blogger friend raynotbradbury, but the man himself in six quotations, accompanied by six Slovenian flower Power windows from Šmartno. The floor is yours, Mr. Bradbury: I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and…

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

Monday Windows from Ljubljana

I know what I said yesterday. And I know it says “Monday Window”, as in singular. But it’s stronger than me. I liked going through the photos of my hometown Ljubljana in Slovenia and selecting my favourite windows – no matter how many there might be. Soon we will return to white Ljubljana. Maybe it will…

Window Monday

Some Tuscan windows and Mom modelling for this Monday. When I posted photos from my “Laundry” folder with laundry hanging off windows, Vicky, who travels in Middle East and beyond, commented that I should post this for Monday Window challenge. Alas, it was not Monday. Also, I cannot save all windows for Mondays, I’m doing that…

CFFC: Laundry from my windows

For a while now I’ve been threatening with my laundry folder. Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge on the theme of windows lets it all hang out. First come Italian windows, followed by Slovenian from Piran – so that you can be the judge of whether Italians truly do it better. I’d say it’s a tie. Photo: a ©…

My first Monday Windows

This is my first post for the Monday Window challenge. After all, windows are to doors what eyes are to mouth. A quotation to celebrate this occasion and 99 years since he was born, lest we forget: They tried to get me to hate white people, but someone would always come along & spoil it….

Promised Volterra

I have many eclectic lists, dear to my heart – of books to read, of films to watch, of articles to study, of places to go – and I’ll have to live much over 100 to do it all. But one thing is certain: I’ve got Volterra down, and I’m grateful I’d caught the whiff on the net…
