Dilliwallas want to shop

I got myself a flickr pro account today. That means primarily that all photos I uploaded are there again, not just the latest 200.

My India photos have always been available via the custom thumbnail page I made for them on this blog, but now they are all back on flickr, and I can see their statistics. A rather bland photo of a shopping center has almost three times as many hits as the one ranked second. Funny. The second ranked also shows an area of Delhi known mainly for shopping (although the picture wouldn’t suggest it; the visitors come mostly from search engines, however). There seems to be a lack of Delhi shopping resources on the net!

As a farewell greeting to my home near Calw, northern Black Forest, I took some pics that turned out rather nice.

Also, I haven’t yet announced the photos from our recent trip to Vienna.

Photo blog recommendation: Trivial Matters

I just have to share this photo blog about India I discovered yesterday with you.  Mumbai-based Akshay Mahajan writes Trivial Matters, and his photos are simply extraordinary.  Along with them go insightful and beautiful texts.  So, if you’re at all interested in India, that’s a blog to check out.


I do still shoot photos!

Fasnetsumzug in Weil der Stadt

Recently I noticed that since I’m back from India, almost no one seems to look at my new photos over at my flickr page anymore. No, I’m not hurt, I just cried myself to sleep a few nights and it was ok again.

I have some pics up from my home area in the Black Forest, including the Fasnet, a carnival-like event dating back to pre-Christian times when the spirits of winter were exorcised; and from a recent trip to Munich.
