|My 50 High School Class Reunion Photo 2009|
Last week I upgraded my iMac to the new Sierra operating system.
I love Apple and all their products but their photo application has left me wanting the last two upgrades. Finally they got it right with this latest upgrade. Now I can organize my 86,000 plus and 3,000 plus videos before I kick the bucket. Not that anyone would want my photos and videos but playing around with them now gives me pleasure and that is what counts in the end, isn't it?
This evening when I went into Photo I found this nice feature: "On This Day . . . "
This photo above is of me and some of my former classmates from my Downingtown High School Class of 1959 50th class reunion.
Hard to believe that seven years has elapsed since that reunion.
Those who have followed my blog since I began blogging in 2005 (yes, that long ago) know that I love to take and accumulate photos and videos.
One of my goals before I become demented and die is to organize all my photos and videos. Again why? Because reliving these memories give me a great pleasure.
My late friend Wayne "The Cajun" Juneau's last blog post he dismissed me as "living in the past." I have to admit that was a very hurtful comment to receive from someone who I was nothing but kind to but be he obviously felt the need to make that parting shot to me. Something I will never understand.
All my life I have taken photos. Now I take photos and videos, short videos. I often wonder how many photos and videos I would have if I had an iPhone camera back when I was in high school. Back in another time and age, the Fifties. Millions folks, millions. But just think of the memories I would be wallowing in. Living in the past.
It would be nice when I am gone that someone would take care of my treasury of photos and videos. That probably won't happen. But what will happen is that I'm going to make a valiant effort to post as many of those photos and videos to this blog and You Tube.
I am convinced that someone will appreciate them in the future.
