Scanning 1992

| | Comments (3)
So tonight I walked up the hill, debugged the pool, cleaned the bathroom, cleaned the kitchen, did a load of washing, had dinner, put on the dishwasher, watched two hours of tv, and scanned eighty photos.

Phewf!

Talk about a productive evening :)

Tonight's scanning job was the album that had photos from my first camera, the Ricoh, I got for Christmas 1991.  The album had most of the first two rolls from that camera, and included such events as Easter Camp, a trip up Sydney Tower and the Harbour Bridge Pylon, the Harbour Tunnel walk, a St Clements bushwalk to Ruined Castle and some photos of my room before and after one of the rearranges I did.  It was also the year I was dating my first boyfriend so there's quite a few pictures of him throughout (and all the flowers he sent me that year)..

The Bismarck at Scarborough Park.  This was a regular thing in Sydney but I only ever went once.

Cousin Itt.  I had a couple of better versions when my hair was a bit longer.

I'm wishing there were more photos taken of my bedroom over the years.  There's a few like the ones I scanned tonight, but really not any from earlier years when it was less cluttered (and had much less personality).

OMG I loved checking out the room photos, how cool! Love the plant arrangement, the old TV and all the cool posters.

L: we watched all twelve-odd years of it :) Esme used to be a right old biddy, but they softened her character over the years and she became quite a nice old lady by the end of it :)

N: I think I still have what looks to be one of the ferns, and a ribbon grass. The geraniums got evicted outside when they got too big heh. The old TV went pfftt one year so was replaced with another one of similar vintage. I think. My memory is fading on the subject. Damn I need to take more photos of things!! I still have a couple of the posters, but gave away most when I left Sydney.
Yes, I meant judge :)
And the BF won't get any pics, although you can just see some teeny ones of him on my desk :)
