Weekly Photo Challenge may be over but not on my blog. Here is another part of my WPC retrospective. As I’m waiting for my travelling uncle to come and take me to Slovenia for the summer, I’ve been enjoying a look back at my previous … Continue reading Favourite WPC posts, blog 2/2
This is my second post for the last WPC challenge ever, which challenged us to post our favourite photos. Who follows me will know that it won’t end here. In my last week’s post my favourite WPC posts from my first blog were gathered. Today I … Continue reading Favourite WPC posts, blog 2/1
The sudden sad news of WPC no more had me going through my first blog to select my favourite WPC photos and posts. I could say that my blogging consists of two periods: pre- and post-WPC. Before I began posting for Weekly Photo Challenge – … Continue reading Favourite WPC posts, blog 1
In a simple twist of fate, the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is coming to an end. The last theme will be posted this Wednesday. In another, I felt an emptiness inside to which I just could not relate. Not only have I been an (almost) … Continue reading WPC: Simple twists of May 2017
My life experience has taught me that if you think you belong somewhere, you might miss an exciting option. There is a Slovenian proverb Povsod je lepo, doma je najlepše which translates as “Everywhere is beautiful, at home is best”. Somewhere I saw it flipped … Continue reading WPC: World in places
My life is pretty much unlikely, all of it. All this was just my longer path to the station on a May day last year. I have a habit of posting a calendar post every month with twelve pictures from the same month last year, … Continue reading WPC: Unlikely life
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
Today a cento made of song lyrics and a war between green and yellow in images. Challenge 23: “Today, we challenge you to honor this idea with a poem based in sound. The poem, for example, could incorporate overheard language. Perhaps it could incorporate a … Continue reading Day 23 & WPC: Prolific yellow and green
Today’s special: A combination of images of awakening nature for WPC and a sonnet to play around with meter and rhyme. Challenge 16: “Write a poem that prominently features the idea of play.” A sonnet, Slovenian-style. Meter: U-U-U-U-U-U, rhyme: abba-baab-cdc-dcd. My definition of the ultimate … Continue reading Day 16 & WPC: A sonnet to April awakening
My laptop compiled a gallery of smiling images, including the ones below, on its own accord. I have a feeling that it checks out the weekly WPC theme on its own without me. Obviously it has realised that I need a kick in the butt … Continue reading Day ten & WPC: Miles of smiles
I must tell you something before April 1st gets here, or nobody is going to believe it. For some deeply hidden reasons I have signed up for Na/GloPoWriMo which stands for National/Global Poetry Writing Month, which is April, which starts tomorrow. I have promised (to … Continue reading WPC: Rise or set?
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?
I’m usually not prone to thoughts like this. If I’d rather be doing something else, I’m doing it already. Here are some people who have second thoughts. It is still true that I don’t take many people photos. I collected most of these for the … Continue reading WPC: I’d rather be writing
Today pictures and captions tell almost all the story. These cats were photographed on many different occasions since last September until today. All seem to reside on #19. In the meantime the young ones have grown. Much fun in determining who has become who. In … Continue reading WPC: The story of dog walking
Oh do I have a veggie candy for you that is not only out of this world but out of space. There are some things that I cannot understand about America. I won’t get personal and inquire into the stardom of certain Jennifer or two … Continue reading WPC: Out of space, off the chard
I understand I should make you anonymous but if you enter my frame, I will click and think “thank you”. This is a selection of people photos from my three visits of Siena. I’d been looking forward to making this selection all week but once … Continue reading WPC: Faces in Siena crowd
A greedy, gluttonous, goloso post. I couldn’t even limit it to twenty photos. It’s stronger than me, sugar is. Here is a revealing post from my first blog. I used to write quite a bit of those. Note the date, almost four years ago. Let’s … Continue reading WPC: My sweet addiction
You can be a tour guide, just for one day. You can be an editor too. A translator. Layout lass. Director of photography. A copywriter. The boss. The secretary. You, blogger, are all of these and more, all in one. And now a tour guide … Continue reading WPC: A guide for one day
A confirmation that everything is cyclical always feels mighty good. Back in my old bedroom I used to have four photos on the wall closest to bed. They depicted the same tree in four seasons: leaf-shedding, snow-covered, budding, lush. Upon moving to Italy almost five … Continue reading WPC: Variations on a field
In my quest to get closer to the flamingos in Orbetello lagoon, I found some other beasts as well. Every time I’m grocery shopping, I throw them wishful looks and they laugh at me from too far away for my zoom. I promised them to … Continue reading WPC: Silence!
