L-A: “Delicate” colours

Delicate is relative but any way you look at it, not much about me is. Let’s see how delicately coloured Slovenia was one May day last year.











Once I started editing these photos to post them for Leya and her Lens-Artists theme delicate colours, I got the feeling that I posted some of them already on my previous blog under the title Delicatessen.

I had a look and lo! Almost exactly a year ago Leya’s Lens-Artists theme was delicate and I thought photos from beautiful Slovenia will save my undelicate self with this Delicatessen post.

You may remember one photo from that day especially: the one of the blurry church in the background and sharp grass in front that I posted in another post. There was quite a debate around it from the photographic point of view.

If you ask me, it feels like that was ages ago and not merely a year. What a difference a year makes.

Let me stress that this was the first time I took another person’s camera for a ride. A professional cameraman let me borrow his NIKON D700 with a huge lens. I forgot mine at home, you see. My camera is a point-and-shoot. I never tried anything else.

I was in Slovenia for a rainy week, this was the last day, and only then and there, 50 km from Ljubljana, the sun came out to play, in part. I was overjoyed.

I don’t know about delicate colours and I don’t know if it was the camera or Slovenia or me, but the colours in these photos are quite striking. In a delicate way. Soon again, in two weeks, if all goes well.

  1. No idea I had delicate last year?! Your images are sooo deliciously beautiful, Manja – and I love the church with flowers in front. The flowers IN FRONT makes the whole picture interesting. Very expressive take – and Lake Cerknica is ethereal. Slovenia is a dream – someday I will visit…I’ll give you a call.
