It had to happen eventually.
I'm still going through the photos that I shot while in France. There are hundreds—almost 1,200 to go through. I've been editing them as I've been blogging about my family vacation, but I've run into a snag.
My backup hard drive is full.
I've been adding photos to this drive since I bought my D-SLR, more than five years ago. And now it's full.
It's time to get more storage space: I upload to the cloud but I also like having a drive that doesn't rely on the Internet. So I'll have to go shopping this weekend, so that I can continue telling the story of my vacation, with images.
Thank you to everyone who has sent me kind words, who has followed my journey and told me to keep telling it.
For Photo Friday, I am putting up the last photo that I edited before I ran out of storage space. I edited this photo, first in colour, then in black and white. I wasn't sure which photo I preferred, so I put it out to my Twitter friends.
The majority liked the colour version, but I decided that the black-and-white image is, ironically, more vivid.
I won't tell you where I was when I shot this photo: we haven't come to it yet in my recounting. But it was shot as the sun was setting across this famous city, cutting into a hall, through stain-glassed windows, and the light seemed to be splintered as it washed over everything in the room.
I'll reveal the location next week.
