A Word is Worth a Thousand Pictures

Who the heck ever thought that these now, so-called 'vintage self-adhesive photo albums' circa 1976 were a good idea? Once the acetate sheet is pulled off, you're not even half-way there. You have to surgically remove the photo print from the sticky-backed, glue-lined pages. Only then can you do what you want to do with the photo.

Like scanning it.

Thankfully, not all of the seven hundred photos I scanned were stuck in these infernal albums! There were lots of photo corners. Remember them? Well, that's what we used back in the 1980's!

But what a trip down memory lane. Trains and grains. And that's what's going into this book project. Part of how I spent my Christmas vacation.  I just did a ten-year time travel.

Look up, look way up.
