Before this month is done, here is last year’s October in twenty images. Greetings from Rome where we had a bit of Armageddon last night, with a hail storm, flash floods and general chaos. Luckily we stayed home and didn’t know about any of that, … Continue reading October 2017
Today celebrates my poet friend. It’s a bit more than just a birthday. Abraham is coming on a visit. I’m not in our country so we will have to celebrate another time but we yet had an excellent day this summer, in Koper on the … Continue reading Happy Ab day, Aleš!
Today I present the first half of possibly all the doors of the village Nova vas in Slovenian Istria where we went for the garlic. Okay, and wine. The Garlic and Wine Festival is the annual event over one summer weekend when locals offer their … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 18/10/18: Nova vas
I’ve just returned from two days in this October city. It was Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, not New York, but here is a gallery of photos that could also be from there. If you believe it. I only spent two full days in my … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: Ljubljana, newyorked
Yesterday I spent travelling by myself. No wonder I was thinking of you. Your kind of love Today I’m taking your daily train route, all 100 minutes of it. Just right for a good film. So I stare out. We go past the lake. Do … Continue reading Pic and a Word #156: Your kind of love
The witches of Apulia go door hunting. My mother has three friends who like to call themselves witches and like to go on tours. They are all around 70 and when my mom was 70, these friends gifted her a basket of tangerines and a … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 11/10/18: Apulia and Basilicata
Twenty windows that caught my eye in Maremma. Today we continue on the day where we stopped in my previous Lens-Artists PC post looking up, but only with the first photo below. The others are from the remaining days of our recent long weekend with … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: Windows and stuff
An afternoon in Italy in late September. All one could want from life, really. I met my visitors in Orvieto, Umbria, and then we went to Bolsena by the lake (in Lazio), the town where I haven’t strolled yet. It was a great place for … Continue reading Lens-Artists: Look up to beauty
I’m not sure who invented the word doorfie for a selfie in a door reflection, but today I’ve got an even newer word: Normie. That is, Norm in a door-shell. He has survived the attack of Tuscan doors and greets you all. There were some … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 4/10/18: Normies in Maremma
“Life’s too short for boring doors” could be the official slogan of our jolly little group. Let’s have more of the other kind. Small wonder that it was Norm, our chief, who wrote this in a comment to one of my Thursday Doors post on … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 27/9/18: Norm’s Doors 3
They say that nobody has walked the path from your direction and in your shoes yet. Make the most of it. First the thought that comes courtesy of Frank Reynolds who is a fictional character, while I am real and you ain’t seen nothing yet. 😉 … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: Path to glory
I shall never forget how upon moving to Italy my parents told me that I lived in the middle of nowhere. Finally. Emptiness. Where are you? When will you return? I turn my back when they arrive and run home to emerging nothingness when they … Continue reading Pic and a Word #153: My emptiness
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!!!!! That’s it, I’m getting on a plane NOW and heading straight there. I’m going to knock on that door and … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 20/9/18: More Norm’s doors
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.
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
Another Thursday Doors edition that is more about the experience than doors themselves. It takes place in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, where everybody comes lately. Savc is the term of endearment for Savsko naselje where certain rappers stem from, including my mother. Here are … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 6/9/18: Ljubljana Savc
A bunch of almost forgotten one-year-old door photos plead to be seen by you all, so I said yes. As I was going through my August 2017 folders for yesterday’s colourful Lens-Artists photo challenge, I found a multitude of doors that haven’t yet seen the light … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 30/8/18: Lokev & Co.
Today please join me for some tea and cakes. And we have reached the final week of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge on the subject of photo components. Each week we were to find one photo or more and mirror Cee’s offering. This was her final … Continue reading CFFC: Components of a Photo, week 5
The end of the world, the ocean, the countries, the history. Or the beginning, you be the judge. Doors don’t mind, they lead into both directions. Trieste in Italy next to Slovenia at the end of the Adriatic Sea is a rather peculiar destination. Some … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 23/8/18: Trieste
