By the side of my computer desk are plastic crates full of trannies, 35mm slides in layman speak. They have been sat there for years collecting dust so while running the vacuum clearer over them in a moment of cleaning madness I had a quick lucky dip. Who the hell are these girls! I spent the rest of the day trying to recall their names and how I had found/booked them but I’m still not sure in most cases. I could spend a bit of time reading through the old paperwork to jog my memory but it would only depress me thinking back to the early days when snapping a pretty amateur model in nothing but her knickers was a rare and exciting adventure. Oh well back to more recent times and a collection of models in their knickers who may have caused by heart to miss a beat but I truly can’t remember.
Last week the idea of in future posting selections of snaps with hardly any theme appealed to me but after working on this update I’m not so sure. This lot were shot under widely differing lighting conditions and post-processing them was a right pain in the arse. From now on I’m going to be even more picky with the shots I choose to post.
I was meant to be doing a shoot today but because of traffic mayhem we decided to postpone. It would have only been my third model of the year and I was quite looking forward to it because I had come up with a couple of new ideas to try out which may have prevented me from getting bored like in my previous shoot a month ago. Oh well another day spent being busy doing nothing.
I’ve finally finished backing up all my important files on to the new Synology NAS. It’s been a long haul and I hope something I won’t ever have to do again. The failure of some of my previous backup hard drives didn’t help but I have luckily managed to recover all but a few of my home movies from the original tapes. I’m sure other things have been lost too but that was always going to happen when you don’t bother to keep track of what is backed up and where.
I’m an expert on boredom, and being boring, but when it comes to transferring data between computer systems even I contemplate suicide. I’ve spent a considerable amount of time over the last week or so moving data from my present set-up/mess to my new NAS and it’s been a mare. I was hoping I could copy it in a few large chucks but that just kept crashing my computer so I’ve had to babysit the process gigabyte by gigabyte. I’ve still got a weeks worth of files to go so if you don’t hear from me again I’ve topped myself.
