Piran. It seems it’s always in view, peeking through, on the edge of Madona Cape, showing off to be marveled. This charming Slovenian coastal town pulls you in from afar and gets you under its spell the very moment you step inside its limestone walls. Piran is special to me. I’ve been taken under its wings whenever I’d need a shelter, a quiet place to unwind, recharge, or get inspired. This blog post is my open invitation for you to go and explore the town. If you get to experience its pulse on an uncrowded day, consider yourself lucky. While busy summer/weekend days and nights give you a sense of being a part of something bigger, I was actually able to connect with the town on a much deeper level when I had it all to myself.

This is a bit different post than the usual because it’s a collaboration with one of my newly discovered brands Bomgogo. They have reached out to me with what I feel would be a fresh and fun approach to see the world: phone lens! You must think: “What’s the deal here and why would you switch/downgrade to mobile photography?” This is the fact: my (very) old Canon camera desperately needs an upgrade.
