Part of Operation: Declutter involves taking all my old photos out of those evil self-adhesive albums and shoe boxes and putting them into some less damaging storage.
It’s been quite a trip down memory lane reliving moments from my past. As I was going through the photos I was thinking how much fun it would have been to be looking through the photos with the people who were in them. Some of them I’ve completely lost touch with, and others I’m glad to still be friends with, even if I don’t get to see them very often any more. And of course my beautiful Lil Sis features regularly in them too.
Here’s one from New Year’s Eve, many many years ago. True to the spirit of my project, I took a photo of the photo with my phone and had a bit of fun playing with some of the photo apps to transform it.
Yes, that’s a growing out perm and yes, that’s a headband. I used to wear it a lot. It’s probably just as well the rest of my outfit wasn’t in the picture!
It's a huge job isn't it. I expect this will take years! Good idea to scan them River.
Yes, that's something I need to do with all mine. I will eventually get around to it. Great shot Barb! – Kylie C.
I did a similar thing with all my photo albums. Scanned every single photo into my computer files (from my childhood onwards), and I'm about to start burning them all to disc. They're also on an external hard drive, so one way or another I'll always have a copy.
