Watching television awaiting the morning weather report here comes the obligatory New Year's resolution story. The purpose of the news story was to tell you that your smart phone and its many apps can help you with this resolution process. There are calorie counters (not for me - I am the obsessive type - who knew?), running program timers (too hot to run here - 6 months out of the year), but on the scroll I saw a "Photo Diary". That might be interesting....
Ok, here goes. My resolution is the same as the past few years -- clean up the mountain of photos in the computer. Of course, I now have a new obsession - taking a photo of each morning sunrise. Not to worry there is a back-up in place. So there are twice as many... You may detect by the tone of this post that this resolution of years past has not successful. You would be correct.
I get out my Android smart phone and see if there is an app called "Photo Diary" - nope, the Apple people have all the good stuff that was covered in the news story. Digging further I did find a great little program called "Memoires" which is free, has password protection and has no ads! I can take a photo add it to the daily diary, it adds the current temperature and has room for notes. Score!
Today's photo came from my diary entry as the program will allow you to message out your info (some programs do not have this function). It has a GPS feature if you want to add that to your posting - which I figure will help me find those blooming nurseries again out in this new part of the world. "Memoires" will definitely cut down the number of photos I take of street signs and such. There may be an iPhone version.
The morning sunrise shots has be relegated to the 365 Project which I started last year and did not finish. Somehow I did not take a photo every day - just mountains of photos when I did take the camera out. Presently, all those on-line photos I want to keep handy are on Pinterest, birdhouse photos are on Tumblr or CheepRooms. I have taken care of the photos of the future, and present, now onto photos past.
Here is my badge, I have earned it.
Here goes... the resolution is to take the rainy days (I hope there are some) and sit down and delete or tag the photos in storage. Now, I have put it out there to the New Year's resolution gods. Let's see how I do this time.
