Judy asks us to show her our favourite photo. In my case that means 18 of them. As if it weren’t her who gave the name to my blog when she called me “excessive”.
In her post, Judy shows us her favourite photo of all times and it’s a group of nuns. She asks for our ideas how such a group could be called. My solution was a congregation of nuns.
If you would like to show us your favourites – and who doesn’t? – please visit her post and leave the link in a comment there.
Well done, Judy, for being able to choose only one favourite photo, for providing such an apt name for my blog – in a comment under an old post of mine she called it excessive and she meant it as a compliment – and for pushing me into action and in search of my favourites.
The first photo came easily and it’s the one that I feature above. It was taken in 2012 during my first visit to these parts that I now call home. I call it Beauty and the Beast.
But that seemed so… inexcessive.
So then came the butterfly, and the gorgeous Ljubljana door that I wouldn’t know existed if Flavia wouldn’t find it first, and one set of happy grandparents, and the other, and that one of the mother’s side of my family taken by dad, and our feet at the Pearl Jam gig in Rome, and my parents, and my sister’s shot of us three girls in Giardino dei Tarocchi, and the favourite photo of me with two friends in Duba, the happiest place in the world, the one of an artist in front of her shop, and a favourite painting that isn’t even mine nor its photo, and bestia on the trail, and then I was reminded of that photo by Snow Melts Somewhere from Ushuaia in Argentina which made us connect, which possibly enabled my blogging future to begin, and then I just had to include Lexi’s doors from Bhutan, and the one that made me go Jeeeesus Christ most recently – Patti’s lion gate from Florence (with thanks for permission by all three. Please find the links to their original posts in the captions under each photo below).
And when I thought I was done with my selection of 17 photos, Judy asked me to include the one of the nun with the drone that I took two weeks ago. Here you go, Judy, just for you.
