  • Gone Fishing

    Gone Fishing

    I haven’t gone fishing, but the bird has.

  • A Cloudy Sky

    A Cloudy Sky

    Today as I walked from one village to another I looked up the hill and I saw a cloud arch framing a nearby village and I had to take a picture. The framing of the image was rather unique. It is below. Is it kitsch? There is a good chance. It was unique, so I […]

  • Playing With Flickr

    Playing With Flickr

    It’s interesting, isn’t it? Flick is a website that I have been part of since 1996 and I have been so distracted by Facebook, Instagram and other social networks that I have forgotten about it. Several times I expected the website to wither and disappear but it hasn’t. It is still around and it still […]

  • Day 55 Of Self-Isolation in Switzerland – Long Horned Cows

    Day 55 Of Self-Isolation in Switzerland – Long Horned Cows

    Long-Horned cows are a rare treat. We usually see short-horned or even de-horned cows in Switzerland. To see longhorn cow is a treat. I took a tiny detour from my walk to get some pictures. I have walked by the field a few times before seeing them close enough to the fence to consider taking […]

  • Day Twenty-eight of ORCA in Switzerland – A Photo Walk

    Day Twenty-eight of ORCA in Switzerland – A Photo Walk

    Today I went on a photo walk. Since walking far is now out of the question if you want to be consistently socially distanced it makes sense to go out with a different purpose. When the purpose of the walk is to take photos you can afford to walk up a hill, or between two […]

  • Infomaniak K Drive, Swisscom Mycloud, Apple Icloud and Google Drive

    Infomaniak K Drive, Swisscom Mycloud, Apple Icloud and Google Drive

    Over the last two days, I have been playing with Infomaniak K Drive, Swisscom MyCloud, Apple iCloud and Google Drive. I settled for Swisscom Mycloud because backing up pictures is free with my current contract and it’s cheaper than two terabytes with Apple iCloud. It’s free. Infomaniak K drive is interesting because you can back […]

  • Avoiding User Generated Content With Adverts

    Avoiding User Generated Content With Adverts

    Instagram has become user-generated content with adverts every fifth post. We went from following friends and their life to following personalities within our field of passions. I follow climbers, photographers, and friends. By following strangers, the timeline has become less relevant. This is especially true about following influencers. Influencers don’t share their life. They share […]

  • Replacing Instagram With Eyeem and a Blog

    Replacing Instagram With Eyeem and a Blog

    Replacing Instagram with Eyeem and a blog makes sense. When Instagram was new, before it was bought by Facebook it was a network of people who liked to take pictures sharing with friends and family. As it grew and as more people used it people followed less discerningly and so it became more of a […]

  • An Ingress Photo Walk Before The Rain

    An Ingress Photo Walk Before The Rain

    Today I went for an Ingress Photo Walk before the rain and I eventually did have to go home because the phone was starting to get wet and there was no urgency to continue playing the game and walking. I did spot a few things that were slightly out of the ordinary. The first thing […]

  • Plane Watching

    Plane Watching

    Yesterday I went to Geneva airport for an event but found that there were no spaces in any of the parkings so I went to Decathlon and Mediamarkt before deciding to go and watch planes land instead. I watched nine planes land. During this plane watching session I was on the Meyrin side standing underneath […]
