Last year when my computer had some issues, even though I had backed up my hard drive, I thought I’d lost several months worth of photos. including our pictures from Puerto Vallarta.
Yesterday I was organizing my external hard drive and found a file ‘2008’. I opened it and all my pictures from 2008 were there!
Our trip to Mexico was before I started learning to use photoshop for editing. So tonight I started going through my pictures, tweaked them a bit, brightened them, and started backing them up to flickr.
These were taken in the first year I was learning photography and though most of them are totally First Year Pictures, I’m so glad I still have them. It was a fun trip with dear friends, and looking back through them made me laugh! Plus, there are a few that I really love.
These are our friends K’Lynn and Dean.
My hat’s off to K’Lynn for being such a sport with that snake! Had it been me, I’m sure I would be dead. I would have freaked out so loudly that thing would have killed me.
But that’s only because there were an awful lot of margaritas on that trip.
And let this be a lesson:
Back up your hard drive.
