“New” in Amsterdam – 2015

Arriving in Amsterdam

No updates forever! So clearly, this blog has made its way into oblivion, being totally forgotten and not worth having a “News” section.

So – here we go for a little restart – and I do hope things will run a little more smooth in the next year.

A small update:
Right now I live in Amsterdam and work here for Greenpeace International. Full-time – which so far left very little time for other things.

In the next weeks I hope to supply you with some images of Amsterdam – it’s a great place!

Have I mentioned this before? I have great ambitions for this blog.

Once it shall will cover everything I do and work on.

Therefore you will have to accept that this blog will change continuously, it will remain in a beta phase for very long, I believe.

I decided to #1 try redesigning and creating this thing myself and #2 I decided not to have a second blog somewhere for trying out. You’ll see everything I try – but – hey, that’s part of the fun, right? Continue reading “p22 in permament beta”

Creating a photoblog 2

Repair in progress in Beijing

not easy to decide.

Maybe – if you looked around earlier – you saw the blog in a different design and layout, some widgets were gone, others added, some pages disappeared, lots of test entries.

This is a lot of work – there are hundreds of nice themes to use, to get inspired by, to enjoy looking at. And all of those can be adjusted to your personal desires and requirements.

So here we are, still experimenting – but actually I just want something easy, clean and very enjoyable to watch.

We’ll see.

Creating a Photoblog 1

Window

After many years of not writing a single word on project22 I decided to gradually turn this blog into a showcase of my own photography. Both for me play around with ways to publish photos as well as for you to have a look at some of the images.

Basic Considerations

There are a few things to consider, e.g. where to store the pictures? Like shall I hold on to my account at flickr.com? Or shall I use my personal installation of the opensource software Zenphoto here at photos.project22.org and integrate it with WordPress using that plugin ZenphotoPress?

Design

After trying many different themes to get a first impression I took a step back to try a different approach. I searched for famous – or at least good – photoblogs using WordPress, to get ideas, to see how things can be done and where to look for inspirations.

I’ll  now spend a little time looking through some of these results before I’ll have any heavy duty adjustments at this blog.

We’ll see, what happens.
