Another modern-day cowboy (though the first one had no horse). Like the previous one, this was also taken on black and white film.

I realise that we've slowed down with posting here, but we haven't been home much. I've got many photos from the past two months, and I'm sure Žiga does as well, so you can expect us to improve our tempo.

These cranes stand directly across from the cafe where Žiga and I drink most of our coffee. With the right light, such as here, after a storm, they can be quite majestic. I took this on film, one of the first rolls I ever took with my old Konica.

Into the distance

Taken from the forest behind my house, looking off towards the north-west, towards the alps. You only get light this beautiful around sunset and sunrise - this was just past sunset, during twilight.

On an unrelated note, Žiga and I, together with a friend, are leaving for France today. We're going climbing in the Grand canyon du Verdon for a week or so. After that, Žiga will continue on to Spain, and I'll be coming back home. So we probably won't post here for a week - but we've got plenty of pictures for later :-)

Taken on my recent trip to Lisbon, Portugal, this is part of the Archaeological museum - the Museu Arqueologico do Carmo . The museum is itself a ruin - I strongly suggest the Wikipedia page on it (or rather, the convent which it used to be), very interesting reading.

Galaxy of leaves

When Žiga or I post new photos on this blog, we almost never consult each other beforehand. We don't have plans on who will upload what, we just go with it and upload when we feel like it - and what we feel like uploading. One of us will post a new photo, then the next time we see each other, we're like "Did you see the shot I put on the blog?". This is usually followed by a short conversation of the photograph in question.

This shot above, which I took at the Arboretum Volčji Potok (which I love visiting) close to Ljubljana one fall afternoon, was different. When I saw this scene, I knew it would make an awesome photo, which is why I took quite a few shots. I couldn't quite decide which was the best, so I sent my favourite 3 to Žiga and asked for his opinion. His first reaction was something along the lines of "What the hell is this?", he said that he first thought it was some photo of some galaxy - obviously not made by me. But we quickly agreed which was the best - the one you see above. Just in case it's not obvious, the sun was kind of low, and the orange-yellow light was shinning in through the forest canopy, illuminating a slow-moving stream.

Oh, and I came back from Lisbon today. I had an awesome time, I'll write more about it when I post some photos, which I've got plenty of. Žiga is coming back from Cuba next week.

One of the dragons on Ljubljana's Dragon bridge. Not Smaug (the dragon from Tolkien's book The Hobbit), but one of the typical Ljubljana dragons.

Unrelated, but I'm in Costa de Caparica, just south of Lisbon, Portugal. I'm at a friends house having some beer - we'll be going to the beach later.

Reflections at twilight

This is a view of Ljubljana's river, the Ljubljanica, taken at twilight sometime last autumn (or possibly winter). The building on the left is part of the town market, designed by the architect Jože Plečnik.

Right now we'll probably slow down with posting on this blog, because at the moment, Žiga is in Cuba, and I'll be going to Lisbon, Portugal in a couple of days. When we get back, we'll be heading to France, to the Verdon region where we'll go climbing. I'll try and post whenever I have Internet access, though I can't guarantee it. But we'll both have many photos from our various trips, so stay tuned :-)

Taken last spring during beautiful late-afternoon, this is at a small house a friend's family has about 40 minutes out of Ljubljana. The house is pretty old - Gregor, you wouldn't happen to know how old exactly? It stands very much alone, the nearest neighbors are across a small valley. One thing that I'm always amazed by is the perfect darkness at night which you just can't get when you live close to a city. That, and the fact that the forest behind the house is probably inhabited by bears and other furry woodland creatures :-)

On a completely unrelated note, that really is how 'idyllic' is spelt. Who would have thought?

The picture just speaks for itself.
