Today I decided that I must backup my photographs on my computer’s hard drive. So, for the past couple of hours I have dragged and dropped photographs into new folders, categorizing them by general names like, flowers, dogs, cats, birds, etc and creating subfolders with the dates and specifics about each for better identification. And, during this process I took the opportunity to delete some unwanted images and found some interesting photographs.
The following images are of something everyone is familiar with. It’s called “the ONION.” And, who would have thought that onions would make a nice portrait and have some unusual faces.
Now, that my break is over, it’s back to work copying all those photograph folders to DVDs for my first backup. Then, I will transfer a copy to my external storage called “My Passport Essential” for extra protection. Afterall, we do live in the digital age where we don’t print all or few of our photographs.
“Wouldn’t it be sad if I lost all those images if I only saved them in one place, on my computer’s hard drive…
“Then, I would cry and it wouldn’t be because of the ONION.”
