Dad-oration: Then and Now

I've started on a new project: digitizing thousands of family photos taken over the past 25 years. It'll be an ongoing process for at least a few months, so brace yourselves -- you might be getting to know our family THEN as well as now!

I had to post these pictures of Peter and Tom, who have always been absolutely connected. I just love this picture taken when Peter was about four. If this ain't the look of love, I don't know what is!

Fast-forward a few years, and this is what you get:

I love going through old photos. Good luck.

It's so funny, because I can see C's expression towards his dad in both of those pics. C's a couple of years younger than Peter, but it's the same feeling.

wow, funny. Tel père, tel fils in the later case...

hey, how are you going about the digitizing process?

Hi Jen,

I expect it to be tedious and time-consuming! Scan, assign to folder. Scan, assign to folder...

These are really precious. What a bond they both portray! (Your husband appears to me that he has a real dry sense of humor?)

Yeah...I need to fire up my scanner and get busy, too.

I am so impressed, what a project! I have boxes of pictures and have so many times thought about just organizing them prior to scanning to computer and it is too overwhelming. I have 400 pictures on my card in my camera right now that need to be developed I don't know how I do that!

It is fun to go through the old photos and all the memories that awaken with certain pictures. Have fun!

Darn, I was hoping you had a miracle fast-process for your scanning... I too have a mozillion old photo albums (dating back to my mother's youth!) and I've been procrastinating about scanning. But I want to give her a digital picture-frame full of a slide-show of photos for Christmas, so I guess I'd better get started.

Good luck with your project.
