Lou has Project Shed, and I am officially working on Project Scanner. Our new photo scanner arrived yesterday, and I have it set up and scanning away. The good news is, I will finally digitize the photos I would like to archive. The bad news is, I will now have a few thousand more digital photos to organize!
Here is a summary of how it works: I have it set up on our new desk space in the sunroom for easy access. I can scan photos while watching the news – the small black unit is the Epson Photo Scanner. I can feed up to 36 photos at a time and the scanner will scan both front and back and store the scanned images. Note – it will only record the back of a photo if there are notes on it.
Of course, there is more to it than just scanning. I have to find which photos are in which boxes, sort them and decide which ones to scan. Today, I worked on photos from our time at the Running Springs, CA house. Here are some random samples from today’s batch.
I started with some of our animals at the time …little Maggie was just a pup, and Hobbes was only a part time inside cat. He liked to sleep outside in the snow. The raccoons just wanted dog food.
Here are a few shots of the Running Springs house. we bought this house fully decorated, even including the wine glasses. Looking at the photos now, the wall paper and some other decorative effects might have been slightly overdone. But we loved the house and enjoyed living at 6,000 feet.
And, a couple snapshots of Lou and I … I don’t remember being this young, but it has been over 35 years.
I definitely have my work cut out for me with Project Scanner!
