Live and let die, and then remember. Let’s go all poetic today. Do you know how you sometimes can’t tell exactly what a Latin proverb means? Is memento mori remember the dead or remember to die? In any case, I see it as the imperative … Continue reading Pic and a Word #161: Remember to die
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
The more pictures I take, the more it becomes obvious that all I do is follow the light. The best is to catch it before it says good night when they say it’s golden, so I do. This magical gallery starts in Ljubljana, Slovenia, where … Continue reading Lens-Artists: Follow the light
In words: a cheeky view of my current life. In images: a look back at how we stormed the Alps this August in search of the blue chapel. Rugged life My life is so rugged right now. These 30 degrees C are ruining my winter … Continue reading Pic and a Word #159: Rugged life
Sister’s good deeds will feed us now. Because she makes cooking look like fun. Starting with her birthday party where she was her own caterer, via fruit dumplings with a visiting friend, past uncle’s favourite pizza which she makes from scratch, with several meals that she … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: Yum for fun
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
Here is a good idea if you plan to go to Slovenia: a medieval, well-preserved, picturesque town called Škofja Loka with a 150-year-old coffee and cake house, among other things. It goes without saying that they’ve got doors too. On this August day, the last … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 25/10/18: Škofja Loka I.
I never combine challenges but this week they made me do it. Something big for Lens-Artists and giant for Pic and a Word coming up. I’m going to include: a quotation (instead of my usual Pic and a Word poem) and thank Patrick for it, … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC & Pic and a Word 158: Up on a Giant
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
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
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
Fire is back. First ten years throughout then five years without. Battling invisible guys or while looking them in the eyes. I thought the fire is gone but I see it’s only just begun. The game is tarok. It can be played in threes and … Continue reading Pic and a Word #152: Fire is back
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
I love it when a photo challenge falls into my lap just when I need it. Just as I was wondering what to do with these photos, so removed from the scenes that I usually capture, I see this call for action by the Lens-Artists … Continue reading Lens-Artists PC: Call for action
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
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. 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.
