Before the Basel Fasnacht began in mid-Feb this year, I had a chance to attend the fire parade in the nearby town of Liestal. Wagons filled with burning wood are hauled down the main street of the Altstadt and its pretty insane to both witness and shoot this on the narrow streets!

+Harald Witzig Thanks! Shot this at ISO800, f4.0, 50mm. I was shooting with a Canon 5D Mk3, 24-70mm f2.8 lens. The fire is very bright so had to be careful not to overexpose.

Thank you for demystifying the brain, for identifying with your patients for their experiences rather than their mental illness, your tremendous work, essays and writings will forever live on and inspire and educate generations to come.

Words from your last op-ed in NYTimes come to mind :
And now, weak, short of breath, my once-firm muscles melted away by cancer, I find my thoughts, increasingly, not on the supernatural or spiritual, but on what is meant by living a good and worthwhile life — achieving a sense of peace within oneself. I find my thoughts drifting to the Sabbath, the day of rest, the seventh day of the week, and perhaps the seventh day of one’s life as well, when one can feel that one’s work is done, and one may, in good conscience, rest.

Rest in peace, +Oliver Sacks
