I have a hard drive full of old photos, most too bad to be used, some with possibilities; but these get lost in the undergrowth. Following Ted McRae's example, I've been sorting them out and rescuing those I can, now that I have newer software and am slowly learning to use it.
Here's a random assortment of the most recent recovers, in no particular order. (Blogger's choice, and I didn't interfere.)
|In a dry summer, an angel dreams of days when her pool was full. York Road, Campbell River, 2009.|
|Is that a ... turtle?! Photo from Laurie's old film camera, pre-2006. Boundary Bay.|
|Rotting ball, White Rock beach, April 2009.|
|I posted this on the blog in August of 2010; I think it's a feather duster worm. The photo was messy and dark, but a few quick tricks with Elements (Ted's first two) brought it to life.|
|Same worm, clearer pose. It's about an inch and a half long.|
|Signs in the corner of a store window in Strathcona. April, 2011.|
I've done a batch of scanned family photos, which I've uploaded to Facebook, and umpteen worm photos; these I will store for reference material for the next time I find another. The weather people threaten us with two solid weeks of rain: I don't care; I'm having fun!
