What a beautiful vintage car. I saw this snapshot in my Flickr archive. From 2008, taken in Hannover with my Canon 40D. I like this Alfa Romeo. Find out more in this Wikipedia article.
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… Continue reading When you have over 20 thousand photos on Flickr…
A snapshot from my archives on Flickr.
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… Continue reading “The boring flower snapshot” lives on
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.
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… Continue reading Flickr: Should I stay or should I go?
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… Continue reading Best chiperoni.ch snapshot of 2016?

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. We’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… Continue reading Referral traffic from social media has dropped
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: Flickr photos 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… Continue reading Embedded Flickr photos not showing in Chrome
Snapshot of the day:
I’ve added some new flower snapshots to this set.
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. Here’s a quick review of my year on Flickr: January 2013 February 2013 März 2013 April 2013 May 2013 June… Continue reading Best snapshot of 2013
Putting on my running shoes and lots of layers.
In 2009 I took these snapshots of cellphone shops in Blantyre, Malawi:
