Me, myself and I

and nothing else

No more posts here (probably)

Hi,

I’ve started an experiment and have started a new blog which you can find here. Therefore there won’t be anymore posts appearing here (probably). I’ll keep this site alive for the time being, but I’ll close comments on the posts. If you want to leave me a message, you can do that on Twitter or Google+.

I’ve been investigating in setting up a new website (well, I don’t have an actual website, so it’s new, yes, but there is no old one). Lately I’ve been trying out Markdown for writing lots of stuff, and while checking it out I stumbled upon MultiMarkdown-CMS from Fletcher Penney. So now I’m diving into MultiMarkdown, Git repositories and CSS. One success so far: I managed to integrate the Disqus commenting system.  I’m hoping I can replace my WordPress blog with this, since I think it’s growing out of control. More work has to be done however!

And the back of the Basilica of our Lady…

Did not take this today, but I have a lot of pictures taken during the last 76 days that are worth publishing. Hey, I’m busy with photography! And it’s MY 365!

The Basilica of our Lady in Maastricht. Took this one yesterday and did not want to let it go to waste.

City Hall of Maastricht. Unfortunately this guy on the right did not want to move…

An experiment today. I wanted to capture some stars, but failed miserably. Well, I did capture stars, but the resulting picture is certainly not as good as I hoped it would be. The only thing really identifiable is Jupiter and the Pleiades in the lower left. Knowing that you can find Aldebaran on the far left and Capella at the top of the image.

Lesson learned: nothing is as easy as it seems!

BTW: the “thumbnail” here is much better than the original sized picture.

Again the Gouvernement in Maastricht. Did not get a shot before from this side when it was lit up (5 minutes later they turned off the lights).

To my surprise the building on the left was lit up in red, yellow and green, the colors of the local Carnival, a three day “party” where everybody dresses up in the most rediculous costumes.
