Recently I have read a couple of blogs about photographs and photography. In This life wrote about the world's worst photographs and I have posted one of my unintentional worst photos here- My Toes! A reminder of summer. I had thought my camera was damaged and so I was trying a few shots while lying on the beach. The damage was as I thought, it was focusing close up and not at distance. I just happened to have my toes in the way! I have lots of other photos which I have taken by accident and have no idea what they are,
like this one:-and this:-
I also seem to have a lot of animal bottoms - sheep , horses and dogs, who turn and walk away just as I am lining up my shot. I decided they did not need posting here! The joy of digital photography means that these photographs are usually deleted.
My son returned from Nepal with lovely photographs a few years back. There is a series of blurred photographs that I am glad he did not delete because of the story they tell.

The Other Me blog writes about the demise of Kodak. We all grew up with rolls of film and simple cameras that recorded our lives. Now digital photography means that we never have to keep a bad photograph. Many of my early photographs are fading. I expect this is due to the cheap developing that I used to send away for. This holiday The Curate and I are busy scanning old photos to preserve them, as some have got damaged in our house moves. He has also given me a small photo printer so that I can reprint the images and put them on my notice board. So in effect, things are going full circle!
