WPC: My cloud

Once there was a friendly temporary mass of vapours (my definition of a cloud). It crossed my path the other day, or I did its. It seemed to follow me around. Or I did it. We had a nice walk. lt made me pay attention to the sky more because I never knew where it…

WPC: A pick of peeks

The Garden is calling again and on Saturday I answered. Here are twenty Niki’s Tarot Garden peeks. Il giardino dei tarocchi (The Tarot Garden) is a sculpture park designed by late French artist Niki de Saint Phalle who lived in the middle of this park in the south of Tuscany and created the world around…

WPC: Well rounded

I might have had this post almost ready before I even saw this week’s WPC theme, but there is something rounded on every photo so it more than fits. After having missed out on the challenge twice for no good reason, I had a glance at this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge theme that has been…

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…

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…

WPC: Waiting pays off

It is always good to leave some room for waiting. For the sun. For the miracle. For you to come along. “I’m a patient boy,” sang Fugazi. “And I wait and I wait and I wait.” Here is a previous post with examples of waiting from my life that includes this song. Not just me, the…

WPC: Structurally speaking

When I saw this week’s WPC theme, I had to think hard. Didn’t we just had something like it? I had to check. It was “texture”. I think I might be consufing the two. Be as it may, it’s always a good excuse for posting a bunch of photos. Not that I lack any. If…

WPC: A little shop on the corner

This not so little and not really a shop is in the corner of Slovenia that not everybody visits. If history of usefulness is your thing, make a note. This is Kras, or Karst plateau, the region of Slovenia known for its caves, prosciutto and wine. This place is a sort of reward that a…

WPC: Ooh, shiny on!

Since my blog is more or less nothing but a collection of shinies that stop me in my tracks, here is just more of the same. I know that my last three WPC posts have featured Piran on the Slovenian coast but it’s where I am right now, averaging 100 photos per day. I’m glad…

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…

WPC: Satisfactioning me

I wouldn’t know it either, but Elvis says “satisfactioning” is a word. Here are my two weeks, one satisfied day at the time. As you know or could guess from my limited blogging activity, I’ve been travelling in my country of origin which is Slovenia. It’s been most excellent and I feel highly satisfactioned. As…

WPC: Unusual week

A fully unusual post for me to go with the extraordinary week I’m spending in my country of origin. Bring on three more, and rain. I’m averaging 200 photos daily thus it’s hard to come to grips with them and post some sense. Plus I’m constantly out of time. Plus, strangely, my English feels rusty…

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…

WPC: Mind the bridge

There is a thing I do that people in my car must expect. When I see something, I swerve to the right. This is what I did when I saw the scene on the left. It was hot, so I left the car running and my family and bestia enjoying the relative coolness, while I…

WPC: Florentine Delta

I had a bit of a problem with the theme of this week’s photo challenge. “Delta” only brings the Nile and the Greek letter to mind. Cool IT kids like Liz surely understand (she even gave me a good example based on our last Thursday Doors joint posts: “So, the delta of your post and…
