Cleaning Out The Closet

24 Jan

This photo taken at The Bridges, Gunter Texas.

Much like we pull out all those unused items collected over the years out of our closet, I have been doing that very same thing on this hard drive. In my own closet(s), there are items given to me by co-workers, things bought from garage sales that I never used, clothes that I saved to inspire me to loose weight and I never did, items kept for sentimental reasons that often loose that value over the years and more.

It’s taken hours to go through documents and properly file all of them. I keep recipes, letters, how-to’s, news articles I pick up off the internet or that people share with me through emails. But the biggest collection of electronic files are photos. I’ve got TIFF;s, JPG’s, GIF’s. Thousands of them.

I post my favorite photographs on my smugmug gallery, but I do keep the TIFF files for the purpose of future editing/processing. These are big files. This is one of those task, however, that makes for staying indoors on a cold raining winter day.

The sun just came out. Although it is a bit chilly outside, one cannot miss the beauty of the day.
