After our trip to Wat Phra That Doi Suthep last Sunday, we passed the Maya shopping mall on our way back to the scooter rental place.

BTW, if you are planing on going up to Doi Suthep, I can highly recommend taking a scooter. Probably not during burning season though, because there will be no view at all, because of the haze.

Anyways. There was a skate event going on. They had ramps and rails set up, and a nice energy going with the commentator daring the skaters on – at least I imagine that’s what he was doing.

This was the first time in a long while I wished, I had my Canons with me. I think, I got a handful of nice images, despite the X-T1’s comparatively slow autofocus.

Whereabouts Update

I recently updated Whereabouts, my WordPress location plugin.

It now allows you to set your current location using the browser’s geolocation api. What that means is: you press a button, and with a little help from Google’s Maps API, you automatically get back your location, without the need of typing it in manually.

whereabouts-geolocation-api

Google returns the results at different levels of accuracy. Just choose the one you like and save your whereabouts.

You can get Whereabouts from wordpress.org or just search for it from inside your WordPress installation.

V 16

As has been custom for the entire time my blog has been online, when shipping a new version, I titled this post with the version number of the current iteration: V 16.

Who would have thought?

This marks – however – the end of this blog being called damndirty.net. Although I will keep the domain forever – it is the first one I have ever owned – I decided it was time to move forward and merge this blog with my photography site. So all the posts of my photoblog have been integrated into this blog. The domain has changed, old URLs should still work though (hopefully).

The majority of the content I usually share online are photographs. I still have lots of work to do, to make the theme perfect for my story telling with images needs, but the groundwork has been laid, as you can see in some older posts I updated.

Welcome to the new florianziegler.com.

picu

Today we announced picu, our upcoming WordPress plugin, that is aimed at photographers and will help them in their daily workflow.

As Claudio wrote, it is still a bit rough around the edges, but we are in the process of getting our alpha out to a close group of photographer friends. We will release more info about features and free/paid options in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Head over to picu.io and subscribe, to get informed once picu is ready!
