Welcome, all the good regular and irregular door people, and see the doors that most pleased our top door expert over the years. And #8!!!!!

It’s September and I’ve got a couple of things to discuss: 1. What photo is deemed photo worthy? 2. Why suffer if you can enjoy it? “It’s interesting what is considered photo worthy, especially in terms of being posted online.” This was a comment under … Continue reading September 2017
Today a special door selection from my first blog, of doors that caught the eye of our Thursday Doorman. “The day I set foot in Rome and start exploring for doors… well I don’t know if I’ll ever leave the place.” This was the comment … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 13/9/18: Norm mix I.
Leya wrote “Fences” in the title of her challenge, which is not to say that the singular form would have prevented me from posting twenty of them, as is my norm. But first, I was amazed to discover – only now, as it sometimes happens – … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: Don’t fence me in
This summer, for no particular reason, I found myself graveyard-hopping. It must be because cemeteries are full of poetic details. Or “little touches of humanity that you find”, according to Emma Cownie. Isn’t that the loveliest way to put it? Thank you! All these were … Continue reading Pic and a Word #151: Grave details
After two months in my Slovenia I have only two words: thank you. I know that this challenge is called Pic and a Word but as usually I’m exaggerating: many more words and pictures than one on how my gratitude feels and looks like. Words … Continue reading Pic and a Word #150: Gr-attitude
A bunch of almost forgotten one-year-old door photos plead to be seen by you all, so I said yes.

Not much fear of that but just so we don’t forget, what with all this summer Slovenia hopping: I live in Tuscany and this is my everyday view to the left in all seasons. We start on a rare January morning when I beat the sun to … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: My everyday view
Since I’ve taken part in all three previous weeks of this challenge, here is week 4 as well. I shall stick to only one of Cee’s components, namely reflection. Here is Cee’s original photo for week 4 of her Fun Foto Challenge, upon which we … Continue reading CFFC: Components of a Photo, week 4
And I’m back with a 20-photo compilation post that I like doing so much, especially after a month and a half in my country of origin with heaps of material and experiences to share. In her challenge, Leya presents patterns of Bhutan, while I keep … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: Patterns of home country
I have no time at all but I’m not letting a Thursday slip by doorless. I have manymanymanymany doors and occasions to share, slowly but surely. I’m still in Slovenia and these two weeks have been slow on my blog because amore is visiting and … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 9/8/18: Ljubljana Moste
This is my cat collection from my first month in Slovenia for the new edition of Lens-Artists Photo Challenge on the subject of soft. Even though I have a dog, I like cats because they know what it means to live in the present. 😉 … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: Soft balls

Let me invite you to another memory photo walk where the point is more on entrances as part of architecture and doors are more or less accessories. But there are other signs that life is good there. My sister and friend took me on this walk … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 19/7/18: Ljubljana Bežigrad
For Cee’s new photo challenge today each of my proverbial 20 photos will be graded and you’ll be able to guess which were taken in Italy and which in Slovenia. First, here is Cee’s original photo and I hope she doesn’t mind me reposting it. Our … Continue reading CFFC: Components of a Photo, week 1
Every time I return to this garden that my parents tend in Piran, Slovenia, where their surprising second home has grown, I wonder what we have done to deserve it. The Garden of Eden and Druga* Permaculture, they call it. It’s been explained as live … Continue reading Pic and a Word #147: Organic
