Working on organizing things in the studio again today. In particular, photos that are out of place. I have piles around here. One of the biggest advantages of digital is that I have no piles of photos. Only disks and a notebook with the contact sheets. A happy maker.
My other photos from pre-digital are kept in their envelopes in linen photo boxes from Target by year (or half year for 2004). I took all the negatives out and store them, along with the Costco proof sheet, in small photo notebooks (hold 2, 4×6 per page) also from Target. This makes easy reference when I want to go back and either use the photo or have an enlargement made from the negative.
On my to-do list today is to burn my current photos to disk. Not so much the fun task…but oh so smart. I am also going to burn my iTunes playlist as well…if you lose your music it is gone. No love from iTunes if you have computer problems. Put it on your to-do list NOW.
Going through photos today I came across this gem of Simon at the beach in the summer of 2003. This is one of my all-time favorites. Many of my favorites have come from the beach…something about the light and the magic of being in that element. This one in particular really captured a moment. And the shadows complete the story…almost foreshadowing the boy he is becoming. Cool.
Off to burn .
