Post-Travel Word-less Wednesday. . .

Pater and I are playing Tourist in our own city today, showing around a couple of friends. But before we pick them up for the day's adventures, I thought I could do a quick Wordless Wednesday post, just sharing a few of the myriad photos bulging out of my poor iPhone. Much easier said than done, it turns out, because surveying the photo files catches me up, whisks me back to Venice, Ljubljana, Zagreb, to moments I'd filed away for later consideration. . .

So I've had to give myelf a brief talking-to, and I'm really going to stick to showing, saving the "telling" for later, choosing to occupy the present as fully as possible.  After all, the Present (gift) of these friends being here is a fleeting one, and we want to savour it. Without further ado, then, a few images for your delectation . . .

 and that's all for now, but there are so many more where those came from.  . .

    1. The ones from Split were taken on our way to, then wandering through, Diocletian's Palace; the top one, on a quiet street near where we stayed in the Cannaregio neighbourhood of Venice; and those giant hands rising out of the canal to prop up a Venice building are Damien Hirst's contribution to the Biennale

  4. Beautiful pictures . Don't you just love old Mediterranean doors . Many years ago we framed an ink drawing poster of various old Greek doors & we still have it .

  6. I am drawn to those closed doors...such mystery on the other side.
    Intricate doors captured my fancy in Paris and I took so many photos!
    I was able to set foot inside one of the doors to find myself in a beautiful courtyard...it was green and had boxwood topiaries...old urns and statues...perfectly hidden behind two grand doors!

    1. Such a lovely reward for being bold enough to step inside such a courtyard!

I'd love to hear your response to my post. Agree, disagree, even go off on a tangent, I love to know you're out there, readers. Let's chat, shall we? I apologize, though, for the temporary necessity of the Word Verification -- spam comments have been tiresomely numerous lately, and I'm hoping to break that pattern.
