Leya is asking us for the year 2018 in review and following my blog change I wish to reflect on my last year’s blog and choose some of my favourite moments, because what else are photos if not captured moments for (relative) eternity?
I had fun going through my previous blog to select some of the posts and photos that I’d like you to see (again), but when I got around setting up this post, I got frustrated with technicalities. I don’t like this new editor and my new theme has much fewer options than I’m used to.
So if my regular visitor is not familiar with any of the photos or a newcomer finds it interesting and wishes to see more, you can find the links in the two lists below with descriptions of the photos. (ADD-IT: Before the links were in dark green in captions but they were almost invisible so I deleted them.)
Another thing, peculiar to this theme, is that captions are only visible if you look at the post normally but if you open a photo in the gallery, they disappear. And this doesn’t make me happy at all.
My laziness is legendary and if I choose to break it, then at least my work should be worth it and visible. 😀
By pure chance (really) the first half of the photos is from Slovenia where I lived for 40+ years, and the second from Italy where I live now.
Slovenian moments include:
- the blank screen in the woods which everyone of us should fill as we please,
- flooded Podpeč Lake near Ljubljana in December,
- pensive bunny on the windowsill above my parents’ garden,
- a fully atypical basketball action scene (they had a trampoline),
- angels spotted at the concert of Brina up on the Ljubljana Castle,
- Savica waterfall,
- happy female dog wishing to play with our bestia,
- grapes from my other parents’ garden in Piran on the coast,
- a pastel sea scene,
- and the last one in the first half, a peculiar Celje castle scene featuring man, woman, view and snack.
The ten Italian scenes are as follows:
- ibis in the Maremma field,
- chard on the first snow in five years,
- all the colours,
- my seven book favourites,
- certain Honey above Orvieto,
- a door in San Galgano Abbey (with the link leading to my selection of 2018 Thursday Doors),
- an arch in Rome,
- pretty Massa Marittima,
- a boat on land by the lake,
- and finally, my bestia on TV, a photo from the last movie post on my old blog with flash reviews of almost 70 films and series.
These twenty glimpses are good representatives of my life. I dare say it’s colourful, abundant and peaceful. Let it stay this way. Always welcome to share it with me.
