Well, we finally got all of our negatives scanned, filtered out the lousiest of them, and placed our final order with ScanCafe.com.  In all we sent them 3821 negatives and rejected 959 of them.  Most of the ones we rejected were either blurry or dark. I also rejected pictures containing no person or thing I could recognize and many that were nearly identical to another photo we took.  Back in the days before digital we’d often take two photos just to be sure one came out.  Most of the film was from the early part of Amber and I’s relationship, 1997-2005 or so. But there were also photos from earlier in life.

When we get the pictures on DVD we’ll start the process of tagging, adding descriptions and uploading to Flickr.  We’ll start sharing sets of photos with people once they are online if we think you might be specifically interested.  There are lots of embarrassing photos and lots of heartwarming ones too.  Here is a very small, very random sampling of what we have to look forward to.

    Aaahhh! I look like such a tomboy! I guess I still am, I just hide it better now! :) Love all the other pictures – what a fun project.

    Amy, I made sure to pick a picture with you in it because you are one of the few people that I could be sure would actually read the blog. I have a few more of you, mostly from various holidays.

    Wow! I had no idea you had those negatives. I’m so glad they survived. I loved seeing the ones you chose to post and look for-ward to the entire collection. I love the leaping Amber photo. And of course, any of you or your sibs as a child just make me cry. Love you guys.
