Photographic Memories and the Joy in Finally Processing Old Files

Photographic memories are so wonderful. Maybe other people have photographic recall and never need old photographs to remind them of great times in their lives. I am really enjoying finding heretofore hidden treasures in photographs from the past that are just now getting processed.

Many of you who read here know that my mom and I have enjoyed many photographic outings with Tim and Laurie Price. I even met some of you through Tim’s blog. These images are from October 2014. I’m finally getting around to processing some of them. The images brought back memories of good times not only on this day, but of many other good times shared.

It was a wonderful October outing, and the photographs brought back so many memories of not only that day, but of so many days we have spent photographing together. The joy of photographic memories…

  1. It’s amazing how many photos go unprocessed. It’s good to go back through the archives every now and then. I really like this series in B&W. It was a fun outing. We had planned to go to the Billy the Kid days in Lincoln this weekend, which I can imagine would be a lot like Las Golandrinas with gunfights, but other things came up and we had to change our plans.

    1. Hi, Tim. I really like the images you did yesterday, probably more than I would have liked Lincoln 🙂 ))))))) (I would have liked those, too!)
      I think that had I processed these at the time, I would have done them in color, just because they were so fresh and that was the way I had just seen them. Opening them almost two years later allowed a totally different thought process. I think the image of you on the ground shooting an image is my favorite of you of all that I have, and it just was not the same in color!!!!!!

  2. Nice tribute to your time with Tim and Laurie, Susan. I love the photos in black & white. Feels more like traveling back in time.

    1. Hi, Lavinia. Thank you so much. I think of myself as a colorist, but these images, with the passage of time, kept saying, B&W, B&W.”
      Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment.

  3. Susan,
    Nice photos of a special day. There’s nothing like that strong, bright NM light to punch up photos. You handled the whites very well, by the way.

    1. Hi, Barbara. It was indeed a special day, perhaps even more so in retrospect. I’m enjoying your current adventure, and looking forward to more images! It is a great thing to be doing.
      Thank you very much for the comment. I know you are not always in internet territory at the moment! 🙂

  4. Thanks for sharing these photos Susan. They are all so interesting. Time does mellow our memories of places. These photos have a lot of character in B & W.

    1. Hi, Juanita. It is so nice to see you here today! I’m glad you enjoyed the images in B & W. To be honest, I was a little surprised when my brain kept calling out “B & W, B & W,” but I’m glad it did. Thanks for dropping by! 🙂
