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…

WPC: Transient state of love and trust

I thought of celebrating the birthday of my country of origin by giving you some of its capital’s street art since it might not be here any more when you arrive. While the man who sings the song in the title, Eddie Vedder, is about to hit the stage in Florence and I am not…

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…
