A trip back into time

For the first many years of our children’s lives, we had a film, not a digital, camera. My husband decided yesterday that we needed to scan all of those pictures onto my computer. We’ve been scanning for tens of hours now, with tomorrow lining up as another scanning day. He’s also been doing something very smart — he’s been uploading them to google photos. You can upload a lot of photos for free, and then thousands more for a small annual fee.

As you all know, I’m a word person, so you won’t be surprised that I’m not very visually oriented. In seldom take or look at family pictures. For my husband, though, pictures are everything. He’s feeling wonderful to have them all easily accesible on the computer and safely backed up off site.

By the way, if you haven’t tried it, check out google’s Picasa, which makes uploading, organizing and backing up photos incredibly easy.

As for me, I missy computer. I’m iPhone blogging again and can’t get to the news. Life goes back to normal on Tuesday, however, so I just have to hang in there a little longer.
