Lost & Found

Ever have pictures that you thought you lost, but then found in some obscure folder in your photo library?

No? Just me and my lack of organizational skills?

Well, a couple days ago, I was looking through the folder labeled “Family” for a photo of me that a friend of mine wanted when I came across these photos of David from our last Enduro race we shot last September. We like to use each other to get the settings right in our cameras before the event begins, usually pretending to hunker over imaginary handlebars, leaping off of drops and running madly around the berms along the trail (I like to spread my arms out and make “zoom zoom” noises, pretending I’m an airplane).

Yep, I know how to have fun.

I thought I had lost these images. I remember the day we came home and I downloaded my card to Lightroom and saw these amongst the thousand or so race photos that I had taken that day. I guess I filed them in my “family” folder so I wouldn’t accidentally upload them to SmugMug with the rest of the bike photos and then, after telling myself I’d always remember where I put them, promptly forgot their location.

So here’s to “new” photos and being more thorough about where I store pictures from the trail in the future. 😉
