Lens-Artists: Look up to beauty

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

Pic and a Word #153: My emptiness

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

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.

To Trieste

Just in time I remembered that I’ve got a poem to write for the A and I Poetry Challenge. Luckily I was in Trieste yesterday where poetry tops the daily news. The challenge tells us to “turn on the radio to any channel. Write a poem … Continue reading To Trieste

Pic and a Word #147: Organic

Every time I return to this garden that my parents tend in Piran, Slovenia, where their surprising second home has grown, I wonder what we have done to deserve it.  The Garden of Eden and Druga* Permaculture, they call it. It’s been explained as live … Continue reading Pic and a Word #147: Organic

Thursday Doors, 28/6/18: Rome

Today, a collection of Roman doors without much ado or words. I’ve been driving almost for seven hours today, the last part on the curvy road up in the Slovenian hills in an attempt to circumvent a road block. The air was fresh. I’m almost … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 28/6/18: Rome

Two towns in one June day

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

CFFC: 20 days of arches

This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge came just in time for me: I’ve got arches, oh yes, I do. The last twenty days have been a bit busier than usual around here. First I had my parents over, another visiting couple came for a day, … Continue reading CFFC: 20 days of arches

WPC: Simple twists of May 2017

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

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

WPC: Rise or set?

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?

WPC: The story of dog walking

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
