Lens-Artists PC: Dreamy stuff

Leya says “dreamy” for this week’s challenge and I shall take it as “dreamlike”. Welcome to my dreams.

Greetings from Slovenia where I’m recovering after the killing heat of Tuscany, reading about Deep Adaptation with quotes such as:

“If we were coal miners, we would be up to our knees in dead canaries.”

Michael Higgins, Irish President, at the National Biodiversity Conference, 21st February 2019

…trying to steer away from nightmares back into dreams, reminding myself that optimism is a new revolution. It’s too easy to be gloomy.

Here are twenty images that pull my mind into dreamland. The first photo is an old one from the Tarot Garden (Il giardino dei tarocchi) in Tuscany, but all the rest are from the last ten days in Slovenia:

  • three from the exhibition The Parallel Worlds with costume designs by Alan Hranitelj which I featured last week on the theme of “detail”;
  • the creature on the roof from Metelkova in Ljubljana;
  • one from my sister’s party;
  • some from my parents’ home, including one taken by my sister;
  • and the majority from The Volčji Potok Arboretum, including the dizzying final photo. We shall visit it much more in the posts to come, dinosaurs and all. It is beautiful there.

This is the dreamiest I can do.

For Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, hosted by Leya of To See A World in a Grain of Sand…: Dreamy


  1. Manja – I am lost in your dreamy dreams…I agree many days are gloomy when you think of our impossible future – but we have to do whatever we can to keep hope alive. Staying gloomy doesn’t help. Posts like yours cheers us all up! The heat is impossible though, but even more so down in Europe. Let’s go for a bath.

  3. Your post apocalyptic Polly Anna had me roaring. Sorry to hear you are needing respite from the heat. It is shocking to me that it is hotter in North America and Europe than in the tropics. You do dreams brilliantly. Your butterly sucking orange, your dream as mosaic and your road running dream are exceptional!

  4. What a creative post, Manja. I love that cartoon in the opening section. And your quote is priceless: “….trying to steer away from nightmares back into dreams, reminding myself that optimism is a new revolution. It’s too easy to be gloomy.” Absolutely true. I love it. And last but certainly not least, your photos are right on target for the challenge.

I will not ask you questions at the end of posts to trick you into commenting. So when you do it on your own, it's that more appreciated. Thank you!
