Where are you going?
Saw this chalk message on the pavement this week near Basel SBB train station. Where is your life going?
“The boring flower snapshot” lives on
I noticed that searching for the phrase “the boring flower snapshot” still leads to some of my flower snaps on Google and Duck Duck Go. Added some new snaps to my collection. So boring.

La domenica sportiva
I went for a long slow run today. Along the Wiese river. Up to Bettingen. Via my favourite sawdust track (aka Finnenbahn) at Ausserberg. And, ending my run at the Kneipp facility in Riehen. Feeling positive and blessed.
Stacked
Took this snap of a stack of newspapers some time ago. I like the pattern.
Tulip time
Tulip mania
A postcard from Basel
I took this snapshot last week. A postcard view of the Münster in Basel.
Flickr: Should I stay or should I go?
Smug Mug acquired Flickr in April 2018. The question every long-term Flickr user is asking: Should I renew my subscription? I’ve been on Flickr for a very long time. And seen many ups and downs. Probably more downs. And it’s 2019 and I still use Flickr. Con: Subscription has doubled in price: 50$ for 1 […]

Photowalking into 2018
I started the year with a walk in and around Riehen, Bettingen and Chrischona. Some snapshots (unedited, pêle-mêle) can be viewed on my Flickr photostream:
Snapshots of the day
I took part in yesterday’s Basel Photography Meetup. The topic was construction sites. Quite a challenge. And inspiring to see what other photographers see at the same location. My snaps: My fave of the day is really for my collection of bicycle content. Velo content for the win:
Best chiperoni.ch snapshot of 2016?
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. The method: I quickly scan through my photos on a per month basis and select a photo based on number of views, personal […]

Autumn colours
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:
Blue light
I like this snapshot of blue light flooding the rest of the room:
Handheld shapshot taken along the river banks of the Rhein
Here is a handheld shapshot taken along the river banks of the Rhein during dusk yesterday evening: When I moved to Basel many years ago, some of my conversations went like this: Nchenga at Chiperoni.ch: I really like Basel. It’s got a lot of cultural events, museums, cinemas for a city of this size. It’s […]
Riehen – Brombach – Schopfheim – Haagen – Riehen bicycle tour
I cycled to Schopfheim. An easy tour about 20 km one way. Going I went via Brombach. Coming back I cycled on the other side of the Wiese river via Lörrach-Haagen. Riehen – Brombach – Steinen – Maulburg – Schopfheim – Haagen – Riehen There’s one stretch between Steinen and Höllstein where the bicycle route […]
I like this Basel snapshot https://flic.kr/p/xZMPbN
“Buvettes” are a big thing in Basel in summer. Their popularity is increasing. Same as street food trucks. Photos taken with a Moto G 2nd Gen smartphone. The best camera is the one that is with you.
Sursee – Schenkon – Sempach – Nottwil – Sursee bicycle tour
Some snapshots from my Lake Sempach bicycle tour on Sunday: The tour is about 20 kilometers. If you have an all-terrain bicycle, try to follow the path closest to the lake. That’s more enjoyable than the busy road. I managed to miss the turn-off to Sursee SBB train station. And so I saw Schenkon twice. […]
Notes and photos from #UXcampch
Some notes and photos from Saturday’s UX camp in Zürich: Adrian Sameli took us thru the process of building infographics. His tip on tools to use: Excel and Adobe Illustrator. He tried one or two infographic tools but didn’t like them much. In the discussion we looked at d3js.org. Next, I attended a session on […]
