Tag: Niki de Saint Phalle
In a somehow typical fashion, I post last year’s November photos on the last day of this year’s. Just in time. My ex liked calling things he did “just in time”, but that meant watering the plants on the brink of dying. Sometimes I felt … Continue reading November 2017
Lens-Artists PC: Splashing in Niki’s Garden
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
Lens-Artists PC: Blending out or standing in?
Today five examples of standing out – or is it blending in? – in images by three. Because Leya asked for it. First, this door from Piran looks stonewashed. It wasn’t me. Maybe it was the snail army to help conceal their spy. Second example … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: Blending out or standing in?
Thursday Doors, 13/9/18: Norm mix I.
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.
Lens-Artists PC: Don’t fence me in

WPC: Life lines
I almost forgot to post my lines for the WPC this week. So two posts a day it must be. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves today, only locations in the captions. These are the lines of my life, only the dog leash is … Continue reading WPC: Life lines
Day 27 & dVerse: The Devil rubaiyat
Today’s poem answers to two poetry challenges again. I think I might as well get it out: Hello, my name is Manja and I’m an overachiever. But first a very special token of gratefulness to Charlotte at Zouxzoux for a wonderful surprising mention in her … Continue reading Day 27 & dVerse: The Devil rubaiyat
WPC: Favourite place, or is it time?
There is a time and a place and sometimes they come together just right. Here are some of those. I’ve encountered a problem with this WordPress theme, Edda, no matter how much I love it otherwise: the captions are too little no matter what I … Continue reading WPC: Favourite place, or is it time?
All my kisses
First a little kiss to all Americans. Why? Read till the end. No, it’s not because they have given us St. Valentine’s Day which I didn’t have growing up. Even though I hate commercialism behind this type of holidays, love is always an excellent cause … Continue reading All my kisses
