I’m currently “managing” (or better say storing) my photos using Nextcloud. Whenever I take photos with the camera, I copy them to a YEAR/MONTH based folder structure. Also the photos from my phone get automatically uploaded to a folder with all phone photos. But Photoprism looks awesome. 😍 It’s still in development (seems like it’s already in that state since 2018 - but there are recent commits, so I guess this project is still alive), but the demo is quite promising.

Since I have holidays at the moment and don’t want to spend all my time at home in front of the computer, I decided to go hiking today. However, the place I had chosen was not the best choice. In the forest it was very muddy and my shoes and clothes looked accordingly. It was nevertheless a nice variation.
