Like practically everyone else in the civilized world, I have a number of cherished photos from “pre-digital” days. I’ve long wanted to scan them in to share and preserve, but my cheap nature has kept me from dropping >$100 on a new scanner that I would use infrequently. However, this week I solved that problem when I plunked down my hard-earned $25 on a used scanner I found on Craig’s List. This post is a test of a plugin that pulls images from my Flikr account to display here. I’ve had the plugin for a long time, but I haven’t used it in ages. This is a random assortment of photos I pulled from an old album to test on my scanner. The one thing I don’t like about this plugin is that it doesn’t pull the captions for the photos. Some of these really need context. The plugin author claims it’ll be coming in a future release.
Look for a series of photoblog posts covering a trip to Europe in 1990. It’ll be legendary! Or something.
