Old Files, Lucky Finds
One of my December targets was to start backing up the photographs from my PC onto an external hard drive. The first step was obviously to find a hard drive! That meant rooting through several “jumble boxes”…You know the type that is full of old leads and chargers and you have no idea what belongs to what. While searching through one of the boxes, I came across a hard drive that I hadn’t seen since I moved house a few years ago. In fact, I didn’t even remember having it, so was curious about what might be on it. In amongst the house-moving documents, I found several old files of photographs, some dating back ten years.
So what did I discover? Well, I found loads of photographs of wildlife, stuff that I thought was lost forever. There were also many Christmas shots, including some very precious ones from Roscommon. And loads of other images too, things I barely remember taking. Old files, old memories, old dreams. But new opportunities too. It was certainly a lucky find and a nice reward for sticking to my targets.
The image above is one of the wildlife photographs I’ve mentioned. It was shot around Christmas time in Naas and it feels great to be reunited with it! I’m looking forward to putting some of these pictures into the Photography section soon.
