I have been wanting one for awhile; ever since my dad told me about his project of scanning in all of his old pictures so he will have them digitally.
So, that is what I have been doing the past couple of days. My dad, my aunt, some left over from my grandmothers house, plus all the pictures I took in high school, middle school and college? Yes, you people that got to go through college with a phone in your camera are some lucky folks. Not only do you probably have more photographs, but you didn’t have to go through the burden of carrying around a disposable camera, dropping it off at CVS and coming back an hour later to look at them.
Only to find that a handful of them actually don’t look terrible.
Yes. You had to wait an hour to find out which pictures turned out and which ones didn’t. And that was only if you could go and pick them up in between classes and work. Sometimes those memories sat there for a day. Or two. Or sometimes longer if you forgot you left them there.
So here are a few that I’ve been able to get scanned. I know it’s not Thursday, so I’ll only post just a few.
I hope y’all had a great weekend!
I am really excited to have all of these at my fingertips.
I only pray now that my computer doesn’t decide to crash. I really need to get with the times and learn that cloud thing….
These were supposed to be for a failed outfit post, but even I couldn’t bring myself to post the disaster that ensued from this attempt.
But while I was looking through these pictures trying to decide the amount of embarrassment I was willing to put myself through for my “art,” I was thinking, how in the world could I make these unbearable photos better? With a million dollar editing system? Some plastic surgery? I know it’s a weird way to get at what the topic is about today, but that’s how I came to it.
If money were no issue, what would you do? If you didn’t have to get up everyday and go to work, what and where would you be?
I’m pretty sure the very first thing I would do would be to move. Probably to New Orleans.
Then I’d sit outside on my bad ass porch on St. Charles (because remember this is a dream where money isn’t an issue and I can own one of those beautiful things), sip wine, and write.
I would write about whatever I want because I could. I wouldn’t care about people reading it or getting published, because well, I don’t need any money.
I’d hang out in my big kitchen and cook and bake and entertain. I’d have three dogs running around at my feet. I’d be able to spend all my time reading and writing (and playing on social media, because let’s face it, I have a social media problem), drinking coffee, playing with my dogs, eating crawfish and oysters all day long.
The other thing this “photo shoot” taught me was that you should probably invest in a new bra every once in a while, because that can make or break how you look in an outfit. I learned that the hard way on this one…
But again, money is no issue, so I’d have a million of them anyway.
So.. if anyone has an opening for the above mentioned, please feel free to contact me by leaving a comment below.
