The sudden sad news of WPC no more had me going through my first blog to select my favourite WPC photos and posts.
I could say that my blogging consists of two periods: pre- and post-WPC. Before I began posting for Weekly Photo Challenge – which happened almost exactly a year after starting my first blog – I had maybe five followers, two of that family.
After that things started to happen and now I’m on blog 3. I’ve been regular too: since April 10, 2015 and my first WPC post I have barely missed a handful.
Since I have more time than it’s good for me, I have gone through all the WPC posts on my first blog and selected 25 favourite posts. Here they are in three galleries with the link in the caption leading to the post in question.
In the first gallery there are my first ever WPC post on the theme Afloat, a favourite find on the road – river Fiora, a Ljubljana atrium from almost every angle, a mosque in Rijeka, Croatia that provided inspiration when I needed it the most, and a favourite photo from the Gianicolo hill in Rome on the subject of victory which is not when one side wins over the other but rather when there is no war.
The second gallery is a reminder of ten memorable occasions and locations which got a dedicated WPC post: the greens of Tuscany in the spring (twice), three Croatian towns on the Istria peninsula, a park of the monsters in Bomarzo, the seventh wave on our beach and my happy place – the passage that leads there, the blues of Castiglione della Pescaia, the magic of Siena, the time amore took me around Rome to buy books, and the time I took him to Trieste.
The third gallery includes my favourite category: ten compilation posts on fun subjects that WordPress regularly provided. When inspired, I sometimes add fun commentary. See if you remember any of these and if not, have a look, simply click on the caption.
There were a spying contest and fakeless faces, a collection of places to eat, another of various letters including one of bestia, and one of different kinds of gatherings, our oooops moments and various close oooops, advice to look where you’re going and examples of motion, and possibly my favourite WPC post on my first blog: Be careful or… (my mom will sing).
And since looking back was such fun, I’ve decided to do the same with my second and third blog, and post my favourites on two more weeks.
WPC might be ending but not on my blog. Thank you for providing so many of us an opportunity to share for so long.
