WordCamp Frankfurt 2016

Last weekend I visited WordCamp Frankfurt. It was actually my first WordCamp in Germany. (I still think it is funny, that it took me that long to attend one here.)

I met many awesome new people – and got to hang out with ones I have know for years, now. In my opinion this is what makes WordCamps so special: It is almost like going to a big family reunion, where you hang out and catch up.

A Photo A Day

Today I started a new photo blog.

In the past I used to take my camera everywhere, but in the last couple of months I stopped. Shooting daily can be hard and recently I left the camera at home more often than not.

It was my birthday this week and in the days leading up to it, I thought that this would be the perfect time to start taking pictures again and posting them regularly.1

But the day came and went and I almost discarded the idea, until yesterday, when I read Luca’s blog post, in which he writes about his experiences with sharing photos online. (Go read it.) This inspired me to finally get started again myself.

So yesterday night I sat down, whipped up a fresh WordPress installation and hacked together a very minimal theme to go with it.

The premise (similar to Luca’s) is:

  • One photo per day2
  • Black & white only
  • One full year, no matter what3

Without further ado, I present to you: florian.photo


  1. It seems, having some fixed date makes it easier to start new things, no? ↩︎
  2. The photo must not necessarily be taken on the same day, but it is encouraged. ↩︎
  3. We’ll see how that will work out… ↩︎
