Slide Scanning

I have embarked on insanity. I am scanning my slide collection again. It’s a long story. And there are a lot of slides. A lot! Don’t ask. A lot! I have a “real” scanner. It’s merely a matter of time and timing. Let’s say thousands… it could take months at minimum. It’s scanning all day every day. I have them stored in drawers. I never assembled the cabinet after my last move… another hanging project. This way everything will be on a portable (multiple) hard drive. Meanwhile, I have dedicated a laptop to the task. And, slide by slide, drawer by drawer… it’s good to have an understanding wife who puts up with my obsessions. Yes, I did say – again. Don’t ask. 🙂

  1. ….at least you’re not sitting everyone down on the sofa and making them watch them all, ala the 1950s. Those were the days–endless, endless slides, my mother saying, ‘Oh Arthur, that’s Eunice! Now when did she die, again? ’48? 50?’
    The very definition of boredom.

    • It’s Photobackstory!. These slides were the genesis of the blog and posts. Initially, my source images were from this collection. And recent and future material will derive as well. Boring? My family was not interested for a long time. But family pics/slides would sneak out and were appreciated.
