The second set of photo albums from last year’s trip to Switzerland have been posted. First up this time is an album on our visit to Lausanne and its surrounding areas (a nice place to visit), followed by an album about Zermatt and the Matterhorn. Enjoy!

Switzerland Photos (Part 1 of 2)

May 26, 2018

Last year, my wife and I spent two glorious weeks in Switzerland. While there, we hiked over 90 miles and visited a number of incredible places. We both fell in love with the country, and we intend to return in the future. If I had enough money, I’d even consider living there (though the cost of living is ridiculous)!

I’ve finally posted photos from this trip to my photos site. The first two albums cover our visits to Luzern and Wengen. Wengen is my top spot in Switzerland, and is perhaps the most beautiful place on Earth.

I will post two more albums in the next week or so, covering the second half of our trip. Stay tuned!

Linked Photo Albums

May 12, 2018

I’m trying something new on my photos site. Starting with the NC Arboretum album, photos will now be hosted at Google Photos. This has a number of benefits:

  • Users can comment on photos
  • I can now embed videos in the album
  • Nicer viewing experience on all devices
  • Simplifies the import process for me

New albums will still show up on my photos site, but they will now be links to the external albums. The RSS feed for albums should still work to track what I post.

I’m not yet sure how to handle the “favorites” section of the photos site. I’d like to be able to point to favorite photos as I take them, but how to do that is still to be determined.

Let me know what you think of this new setup. I’m looking forward to giving it a try, and I have a backlog of photo albums to post.
