Last week I began a project that will probably take me 3 months to finish. Ever since Adam was born, I have kept the negatives for every photograph I've taken until I switched to a digital camera in 2002. The negatives are all neatly tucked into pockets of a binder. All of my digital photos are nicely organized into folders on my computer, by year/month/event, but whenever I want a photo of my kids when they were little, I need to go to photo albums and scan them into the computer.
I discovered recently that my photo scanner is also capable of scanning negatives, and the negatives scan into a much better digital image than trying to scan printed photos. So my big job this winter
is to scan my negatives and digitalize those photos that are worth keeping.
As I am scanning the baby pictures, I am frequently struck by how much my adult kids look like their baby pictures! I decided it would be fun to pair up a few photos to demonstrate this.
It is really amazing.
(Sorry, Annie, but I haven't gotten to your baby pictures yet).
Then and now...
