WPC: Fok-us

“Fok” is something I might say when my super auto point-and-shoot decides to focus on something else than I would. Still, it makes for interesting pairings. I’m quacking from the heat as I’m touristing around new locations with my visitor and my dog who has seen it all and yet gives me the “ARE YOU…

WPC: This Order

You are used to it by now, my (dis)order. Unlike in my living arrangements, closets, drawers, yard and things like that, I keep substantial and surprising order in my head. I swear. It’s not an easy job but it’s the least I can do. 😀 My blog is a reflection of that. To a pro…

WPC: Buddies and friends

In the last few months these were my friends. Thank you all, bloggers and other onliners, for adding humanity to my daily existence. As you can see, I sorely need it. Even though Bestia performs a variety of roles, as you will see. Photo: © signature mmm (except the one of me and my friend)…

WPC: Eva and Adam nescent

I don’t like words that I don’t know how to pronounce and don’t know what they mean. “Fleeting” makes more sense. Until I learn them, that is. So thank you for the lesson. Still, I had to break it down: into “Eva” (and Adam) and “nescent”. I like the definition of the latter: “just coming…

WPC: Her heritage

Today marks one year since I posted my first post on this blog because my first blog was getting full. A good day to view one’s heritage. In one year I managed to fill it up with less than 40% of space remaining. Serves me right for always cramming my posts with too many photos. Can’t help…

WPC: Reflecthings

Here are some recent reflections: of Rome, of Bestia, of me, of me on Bestia, of trees. Most were taken with the help of the car – which reminds me that for photographic reasons I need to wash the roof too – except the last two are reflections in a puddle. We don’t have many…

WPC: A smoking hot danger!

One of the biggest dangers since it’s so addictive. Imagine the billions this industry is (still) hoarding. And then admit to yourself that you are a non-smoker. Before we look at a very few photos on the subject since it doesn’t deserve more, some other things first. As you may have heard, I have a…

WPC: Wonder lust – Wander list

Yes, I have my wander lust and list too. These are just some of the spots I have crossed out. My list is getting additions on an hourly basis, as soon as I see something appealing on blogs or Tweeter or Facebook. Normally I only include a destination if it’s under 3 hours’ drive from…

WPC: This is Earth calling

I’m going to green you up now. When I started to collect ideas for my Italian trip list (it’s a piece of art, with times required to reach destinations and different colours indicating directions), I found a photographer on Facebook who posted beautiful images marked “Crete Senesi”. Google Maps didn’t recognise it as a place name. Then…

WPC: Sur+prize

It’s best if you take everything as a surprise. After all, If you think about it – it is. I like to say that I don’t have any sense of direction because it’s good to keep getting surprised about where you are. Similarly, I’d never wish or even pay to know what the future holds. Especially…

WPC: Quadruple security

Silent but deadly. 😀 Photo: © signature mmm In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: Security

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…

WPC: Easy peasy being green

Green is easily my favourite colour. Ask anybody. And dogs are my favourite animals. Something happened on this day in 1999, and some green things happened ten years ago. Let’s start with these. First of all, ten years ago I stopped smoking after twenty years and two packs a day, which is still the biggest…

WPC: Atop of the morning to ya

The title goes well with yesterday’s Fiesta, whereas the photos are two apiece from different tops I have climbed in my two countries. But first the last week on my blog lest I forget. There were quite a few topics: Last week’s subject of “wish” had me running for a pretty little church; I told you…

WPC: Wishful

When an atheist reaches out to a church on the prompt of “wish”, then you know we are in trouble. Since recently, the WPC theme is announced on Wednesdays instead of Fridays. I think Friday is the earliest I’d manage to post though. I like to add my weekly recap to my WPC posts, in case…

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…
