Lens-Artists PC: My magic, part 1

When I saw Leya’s prompt post and her magical garden, I could see it clearly. As I went through my photos, I could see it everywhere, and that’s when I realised: This is what my camera is doing. Magic-spotting.










Since I had fifty photos immediately and elimination proved painful, I decided to do a double post: the first part today, the second part tomorrow, with twenty photos in each. Is this my excessive blog or what.

Today’s photos will be mainly from my summer in Slovenia, except the last four. Not because the grass was greener over there – Tuscany wins in the winter, Slovenia in the summer and autumn, whereas both are equally spectacularly green in the spring – but because magic clearly happens out of the ordinary, and Slovenia is this now for me.

Also, one must look for it. It’s where something blinks, shimmers, titillates or just is and you spot it and don’t quite believe it but it clearly exists because you’ve got photo evidence. Have a look.

For more magic, see the Good Omens series, if you have or haven’t read the book. Thank you, Leya, for the tip. I’ve watched the first part.

Oh, and oh yes, see you tomorrow for my magic, part 2.

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

    1. Thank you kindly, Amanda! 🙂 Do you mean to get to the top of the tower? There is a comfortable lift. Or do you mean to this part of the country? Not difficult at all, just follow signs for Hungary. The border is close. As are Croatia and Austria. Slovenia is tiny. 🙂


      1. My apologies for not being so clear. I meant that geographic spot. As I drive on the opposite side of the road to you, I would probably be restricted to public transport. It might be a bit scary to concentrate on driving and navigating in a strange country on my own.

      2. Oh, I bet! I have never driven or attempted to drive on the opposite site of the road either. But Lendava is the regional centre so buses should be available. But the best is to have a local guide with a car. 😉


    1. Ahh, I’m glad you appreciate my banner photo. 😀 Lots of work with those in this theme. They are so narrow.

      I should have explained but was hurrying along: Hundertwasser, the painter and architect, is famous for the uneven floors of his buildings. He mentions their importance in his manifesto. It seems that he did the bowl with the uneven bottom too. 🙂 It made me smile. But I’m glad that you say so what if you’re perplexed. 🙂


Happy to learn the first thing on your mind.
