For the boring flower snapshot album, some first signs of spring.
I’ve been on Flickr for over a decade. And I have over 20 thousand photos. Imagine. I didn’t think this is possible. Memories. Snapshots. Visual notes. The primary beneficiary is… me. I love browsing thru my photos. I love seeing old snapshots emerge in the Flickr stats or in old links or chats. I realize […]
Some snapshots and memories in this Flickr album.
A snapshot from my archives on Flickr.
Saw this chalk message on the pavement this week near Basel SBB train station. Where is your life going?
I went photo-walking with the Basel Photography Meetup on Saturday. The theme was #Openings. On my way into town, I saw this yellow monster. Nothing open about it. And very noisy. I like this snapshot of openings within a gate: This snapshot of some openings in this construction site scaffolding fits my likeable criteria equally […]
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. I think this is a great example how using links and relevant anchor texts consistently can help you rank for a […]
then, i took part in this velo tour organized by the Swiss Architecture Museum and Open House Basel https://t.co/f6i17eQMqx — ?…Collect this tweet (@nchenga) May 19, 2019 I took part in a bicycle tour of public spaces and buildings in Basel. A highlight.
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.
Took this snap of a stack of newspapers some time ago. I like the pattern.
I took this snapshot last week. A postcard view of the Münster in Basel.
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 […]

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:
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:
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 […]
For all my creative photography friends, here’s an article by Moz on how images boost conversion. And a list of tools.

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 like this snapshot of blue light flooding the rest of the room:
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 […]
