Ka-wuuuum, ka-crash!

And suddenly it’s March. Despite all my lofty plans to use Chiperoni as my tweet machine, I was feeding the corporate silo with links galore.

Until I saw this. There’s an IndieWeb plugin to install.

Tweet, tweet.

Life is busy. My day job keeps me busy.

The weather has been beautiful this past week. Sunny and warm.

Basel is celebrating Fasnacht. The amount of confetti on Wettstein-Bridge on Monday evening was incredible. The clean-up operation at 8 pm was quite fascinating. They bring out major equipment and with all the yellow light flashing, it creates quite an atmosphere. But I didn’t stop for any photos.

Yesterday I stumbled across a very moving series of photos from Fukushima by Metroblossom.

Sad. Especially the long term effects of the nuclear power plant. I watched a video on the ARD German TV Mediathek site called “Meine Tante aus Fukushima”. Equally sad. Let’s not forget how vulnerable life is. It doesn’t take much to destroy your livelihood.

In the film, the one thing that the family picked up from their former house were the family photo albums.

The ability to capture one moment in time. To preserve memories.

That’s one of the things that draws us to photography.

I’ve been posting some photos on FLickr. I quite like this close up:
