bridge of sighs

Wow.
It just hit me last night that on November 30 this year it will have been 10 years since I moved to the UK.
It seems a lifetime ago and I've been back in Australia now for almost 7 years.

All but the last shot from this night in Oxford are already on my site, but I rescanned them because the versions on my site were ones I had scanned from prints at my work when I was living in Reading and working in London.

As I couldn't use massive amounts of storage space on my work computer and had to back everything up to CDs, I had to be stingy with my scanning: 6"x4" prints scanned at 100% at 300dpi as JPGs, rather than my preferred scanning from neg at 11"x18" at 300dpi as PSD files.

So when my parents asked for one of the images to be included in a 2009 custom calendar, I needed to rescan the image to get a printable version and decided to do them all.

Even the last one, which was bypassed at the time but for which I've found a new love tonight. Probably previously I disliked the lens flare. Now the lens flare makes it for me.

Now if only I had 48 hours in a day, 8 hands, 4 scanners and a team of Photoshop monkeys I might be able to back scan all my old work... Le sigh.
