So, I tried to mess around with my computer right after coming home from my sixth day in a row at work and accidentally deleted everything on my external hard drive. Fortunately it hadn’t been *too* long since I’d backed up — only about two and a half months — so I only have that much work to do over again. Don’t ever try to do creative things with your computer after six straight days at work.
So I’m now at 3,200 pictures and 121 postcards scanned in. It won’t be that much time before I’m caught up again. I hope.
In other photographic news, for some reason I used to divide up my pictures by the camera I used to take them. It seemed to make sense to me at the time, probably because before I started this blog, I only took a few pictures once in a while and it was easier to remember which camera I used.
Now, though, I’m taking dozens and scores of pictures every weekend (I’m not so far gone as to be taking hundreds — yet) and I’m losing track. So, I am also moving the pictures from my phone pictures directory into my main photographs directory. And since I’m going so many places now, I have started to mark the directories with the destinations inside. This is particularly interesting when it comes to my pictures of Italy, because my camera was on San Antonio time the whole trip. This means that one “day”‘s pictures generally spans two days in Italy. So that’s fun.
So now I’m rescanning pictures, and moving pictures from one directory to another, *and* rebacking up the pictures taken with my phone.
And in other photography news, Alex and I went downtown today to see if I could get a good Christmas picture to post in a couple of days. I think I have the perfect one chosen. We took a lot of pictures (I took 61 and I don’t know how many Alex took), and did a lot of walking (about three miles) and didn’t get back until after dark.
