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
There is a new photo challenge with four different hosts and this is its first week. How full of wonder. I don’t know how regular I will be but I certainly appreciate the attempt to fill the void left by the abolition of WordPress’ WPC. … Continue reading Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Wonder
I’ve changed the capital for the coast. Let’s follow the woman with the straw hat. In Piran on the Slovenian coast by the Adriatic they put up several boards with vintage photographs showing Piran how it used to be, and set them on the locations … Continue reading Piran then and now
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
It is on us, the focus and our happiness. This is my view to the right: some of my books reflected in the smooth back of amore’s screen. We are like characters on playing cards: sitting opposite facing each other diametrically. If he extends his … Continue reading Pic and a Word #144: Focus
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
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
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
Today is May 17th and the difference from yesterday is bigger than one would think. Yesterday I added a new year to my life and today I immediately hit the door jackpot. With my visiting parents we went to a new location, an old salt-works … Continue reading Thursday Doors, 17/5/18: Saline di Tarquinia
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
Challenge 21: “Try writing a poem that plays with the myth of Narcissus in some way.” Again, thank you for introducing me to an excellent poet. I wish to draw your attention to Antoinette Brim who is responsible for today’s prompt. I find her Walmart … Continue reading Day 21: Narcissus
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?
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
Today was a fairy-tale morning in Maremma. Hard to believe but the worlds are becoming one. It started to snow last night around 9 and at 8 am I ventured out in the weak sun to capture what I knew would be history by lunch: … Continue reading Disturbance in the force
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
Now that February is here, let’s look at last year’s, as is my habit. I have only four photo folders for this month. February is short and it’s not yet as comfortable to stroll around due to cold winds. All photos were taken in my … Continue reading February 2017
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!
The quintessential moment. An existential crisis. I’m going straight to hell. No, not because I’ve chosen twelve apostles – 12 photos – to represent January 2017 in my new calendar, and forsaken all the remaining images dear to my heart that by now must be … Continue reading January 2017
Eerie, cautionary, out of time. When water comes a-knocking. Three weeks ago, when on a visit to my birthtown Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, the annual floods hit the part of the city that is built on the marshes, hence it is still called Barje, … Continue reading WPC: Growing water
Here we are, in 2018 and on my next blog. To warm us up, five photos from yesterday and five from today. Clicking on a photo will open a gallery and display the captions in full. This has been the calmest New Year’s Eve since … Continue reading Next!
