Re: Everyone must be....


A couple of years ago, I went through the zillion-plus pictures I have taken in the last 30-40 years. They were both slides and color negative prints, which I tried to match the prints to their negatives. Because I'm relatively insecure, I usually take a dozen or so pictures--while fiddling slightly with aperture and speed--of whatever I'm shooting. That meant lots of almost duplicates that I could throw away. Anyway, I then took the winnowed slides and negatives to Wolf Camera and paid them to convert them to digital and put them on CDs. There were a few prints that I could not fine negatives for; I scanned them into digital files. Once I got the CDs from Wolf, I labeled the files and threw the whole mess of paper and film away.

Try puzzling out pictures with the labeling in Japanese!

Yes, my sisters and brothers and I enjoy the old pictures that are

The

and have
no meaning to us.  We are trying to salvage many of those that we
can id.
Unfortunately, there is no one right now who can id the ones we can't.

I would love to have labeled photos of my grandparent's families. One
time I
was shown a picture of aunt "Susie" 5 generations back. Looked
just like
me
with dark dark eyes. Genealogy is addictive, especially when you
know a
few
of the stories..

It's a chilly fall day here.  We were hoping for some much-needed
rain from Hurricane Noel - they promised us four to six inches - but
none fell.  Yesterday was really disagreeable - temperatures in the
forties and very windy and dark - but not a drop of rain fell.
Fall color has been very nice this year, and seems to be more
prolonged, with trees turning in some sequence instead of all
at one time.  There are still quite a  lot that are quite green, but
I haven't figured out just what makes some turn before the others.
We've only had one very light frost, which is late for that, but
it has
been pretty chilly and windy for the past week.
I've been occupied with trying to make some sense and order out
of half-a-century of photographs.  When the boys were here this
summer, my youngest took a couple of old albums that were
falling apart and put them back together, and scanned them into
a removable disk.  Now he is urging us to put the rest of the many
boxes and piles in order while we can still identify them.  I'm
halfway
ready to throw the whole batch out - I find it hard to imagine
that my
grandchildren are going to even look at them. And I don't even want
to think about all the boxes and carousels of slides. At least it
gave
me
an
excuse for not doing garden work in the cold windy weather.
