Musings on my new life; After "Retirement"
My Main Blog
Monday, June 2, 2008
So May is over now, it's June. I do several things, almost obsessively, with Photos taken each month. All photos are categorized by the year and month on my Hard Drive and in a back up drive AND on a DVR.. And I print out most photos every month for photo albums for my family to enjoy.
28 years ago I lost a roll of film with pictures of my Grandmother, Mom, Me & Katie all together. Years later, my sister took a roll of film at Ricky's first communion and the roll disappeared. Since, in the years before digital, I probably took hundreds of rolls of film and only clearly remember the two that were lost, I've decided I'm pretty compulsive about photos. A couple of other mishaps with memory discs and lost files on my computer have added to my compulsion to ensure that no photo taken is lost! EVERY Photo must COUNT. My Canon SLR was a Christmas gift in Christmas 2006 and by March 2008, I'd taken over 10,000 pictures. I forget many things, my way home, my neighbor's faces, to use a step when getting into the Kiddy Pool, but I do not forget to do my daily, weekly & monthly back up of photos I've taken of my family, friends, and favorite places. I probably need a prescription or some kind of compulsion pill. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog today.
