Yesterday and today celebrate a couple of people but I only have eyes for one. (The other is Ed Vedder.) Every year I try to imagine how little Marco growing up in Rome had to fight for his birthday with that other guy. But he … Continue reading Ti piace Manja
This is my family’s garden in Ljubljana in as many seasons as I have witnessed since moving away. It’s been five years since and even though I return as much as I can, it’s usually only summer or winter. This year I’ve added October and … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: Garden through seasons
Norm says to do a recap of this year doorwise, and so I have. I like recaps. They help you see. It felt good going through my year in doors especially since this blog is about to close. Yes, again. I guess I’m eating up … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 20/12/18: 2018 Recap

If not made by hand, then surely hand operated and without a doubt hand taken. Nostalgia For all the hands little and big that ran out of time. For the fingers that pressed all the right buttons and wrapped around the loved ones when the … Continue reading Pic and a Word #163: Out of hand
Here is a true story to lead you into the garden where the Magician stands on the head of the splashing High Priestess. Sounds like life. It’s 1991 and I’m out of the country without my parents for the first time. The country is France … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: Splashing in Niki’s Garden
Today the memory of an August afternoon spent in Koper, the fifth largest Slovenian city. By the look of it, it could also lie far away, in Argentina, maybe, or Honduras, or at least Italy. This biggest Slovenian port is located just below Trieste and … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 15/11/18: Koper 1
Today’s entry takes us to the August day on which injections and doors were shot to ease the pain. And since it’s November 1st, there must be a cemetery too. When I was in Slovenia for the summer, mother and I drove for half an … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 1/11/18: Mekinje & Kamnik
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
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
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!!!!!

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.

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
Today celebrates my father, in many ways my role-model. One of the things I love the most is how you will always caress a dog. This year I’m here for your birthday, for a change. Last year I came a bit later and yet all … Continue reading Na zdravje, Dad!
Today I paid a visit to about one half of my ancestors. They are conveniently gathered at the Žale Cemetery in Ljubljana, Slovenia. It was a good day for it since today celebrates the man who took care of my grandmother so well that he … Continue reading Happy birthday, dedek!
Today let’s celebrate The Snow Melts Somewhere for she has the most to do with the fact that I’m still around and blogging. Since my favourite and most supportive blogger (and how nice it is when the two are not inter-dependent) celebrated a nice round … Continue reading Twelve For Snow
This day last year, contrary to sanity, my visitor and I went hill town-hopping. To say it was hot is an understatement. Just like today. Only a week ago I was mentally praising this summer, especially in comparison with the drought last year: around me … Continue reading Another hot June day in Maremma
One year ago amore made tiramisu so that my American friends and I could have a picnic in the Dying Town. After Rome ten days earlier, this day last year was our second day together. Liz from Fetching the World, Emily and Shawn just completed … Continue reading Two towns in one June day
