Photo project

I think I've mentioned that I have broadband at home now. This of course means I need to change some e-mail addresses and at least one website location. But it also meant that a lot of photos needed moving. For the first couple of years of my LJ, when I posted a photo, it was stored on the webspace provided by my ISP. Then LJ came up with Scrapbook, and I put new photos there, figuring at some point I'd get around to transferring the older photos. Well, that point has arrived. See, if I don't transfer them now, when I finally pull the plug on my relationship with my old ISP in a couple of weeks, I'd get a lot of dead image links. And I have to pull the plug on the old ISP, or else I won't be able to afford the new ISP.

So the transfer is well under way. I think all the photos are in Scrapbook now. But they need tagging, and descriptions, and organizing. And then the original entries have to be edited so they have the new URLs for the images. This is turning out to take maybe five minutes per image. I'm kind of glad that Friday Photo series I was doing in 2004 didn't really keep going. I've been doing the tagging and updating as a fill-in task for a few days now, and I'm probably about 65% done.

It has been fun looking at the photos again. I should take some more and post them. (That kind of sentence should probably be a macro of some kind; I know I've said it lots of times.)

Anyway, I guess I'm saying all this to lead up to an invitation to check out my Scrapbook at http://pics.livejournal.com/songdogmi/ . The organization is still a work in progress, but I know there are a few pics of birds and other critters in there, and a few travel photos.

I swear that picture of you and your sister eating ice cream is one of my all time favorite photos. I would LOVE to have a big print of it to hang in my kitchen.

I'm sure the negatives are long gone, but it might be worth looking for 'em. I'd like a bigger print of it too. It is kinda cute, huh? :)
