Another year has passed. And it’s time to look at my photos and select a snapshot per month.
My photo selection skills are influenced by memories, rather than the photo’s quality alone.
I quickly scan through my photos on a per month basis and select a photo based on number of views, personal taste, or memories or a mixture of all three.

Your feedback and comments are highly appreciated.

Here is an attempt to find
my best snapshot per month for 2015.

Last weekend, I went for a walk on
Belchen in the southern Black Forest (1414 m). Not as high and spectacular as the Swiss alps, but still very beautiful.
I nearly forgot to take my camera.
Here are some snapshots:
I saw this
Bufferapp article on declining social media traffic.
Weâ€™ve lost nearly half our social referral traffic in the last year
I say. No wonder. Everybody is online, creating tonnes of content. Most people are too busy to read, let alone follow so many data streams.
Many web pages don’t get any traffic at all. A few sites get all the traffic.
Interesting read. I recommend reading it.
My tip: don’t share or comment on articles that you haven’t read. Even bots can do that. Be human.
And. If you do like an article? Comment, share and write a blog post on it.
If you’re on Facebook and want to see better content, I recommend following
Robert Scoble’s advice. The filtering is improving. And this week’s announcement on Facebook Search means we may have a viable alternative to Google Search. At some point in the future.
chiperoni.ch. It doesn’t need to grow traffic.
Have a look at
my photos on Flickr.
I like this snapshot of blue light flooding the rest of the room:
I found it. It’s at a pedestrian light near Basel SBB.
A fun street art sticker I saw this past week.
An orange vespa crossed my path this week.
I’m seeing some unexpected page views:
embedded in the old way are not showing in Google Chrome on Mac. But they are showing in Safari on the same machine. I disabled all my Chrome extensions except Lastpass, but the photos are still not loading.
This is how they are embedded:
Any ideas why the photos are not showing in Chrome on Mac?
I’ve added some new flower snapshots to
The question is:
How do I find the best Chiperoni snapshot of 2013?
My most productive month on
Flickr in 2013 was May. Least productive – at least in terms of uploads – was August.
Hereâ€™s a quick review of my year on Flickr:
BTW, you’re seeing
a new kind of image embed that Flickr is rolling out now.
Putting on my running shoes and lots of layers.
In 2009 I took these snapshots of cellphone shops in Blantyre, Malawi:
Trying to capture the inner structure of a kaki persimone fruit aka sharon fruit:
Che nostalgia. I had a foldable bicycle just like this.
Malawi Flickr group silently crossed the 500 member mark.
If you’re living in Malawi and have access to enough bandwidth, get the Flickr app (
Android | iOS ) and post everyday scenes to the group. Show what life in Malawi is like.
If you’re travelling to Malawi, share your best and favourite snapshots of your holidays in Malawi.
If you’re a professional photographer, we’d love to see how you see the warm heart of Africa.
Join the group!
I think this photo

So close that i managed to get quite a good snapshot with my small digicam:
Malawi photos to follow…
Sipping coffee, planning tasks, listening to the radio.
Here’s a quick review of my year on Flickr:
My most productive month on Flickr in 2012 was… September. I managed to
upload 171 photos in one month. Least productive was May 2012 with 52 uploads.
Walked thru parts of Riehen and Chrischona today. The weather was better than expected. Took lots of flower snapshots for
the boring flower snapshot set. So boring they easily qualify.
I found this sign on my way back to my bicycle:
Made me smile.
I continued exploring Jekyll (
see yesterday’s post). Bin gespannt.
