Lost and Found

I know from a comment I received last week from a visitor here that I'm not the only photographer who has occasionally (often ?) gone out on a photo shoot, and downloaded the results into a folder with the intent of coming back to review them when time permitted, only to let them languish - sometimes for years (?)

I've been slowly working to get photos from past years catalogued in Lightroom (I suspect this will be a lifetime project). Until I do it's a hit and miss approach when looking for something specific in my old folders. The upside, however, is that I do stumble across photos that I'd almost forgotten existed.

And so I came across a series I shot while in Denver to attend a niece's wedding almost 5 years ago. I dusted a couple of photos off and thought I'd share them with you. The first was shot from a hotel balcony with a 70-200mm lens perched on the railing, and the second with my then newly-acquired 10-22mm.

Perhaps you have some buried in a folder that should see the light of day.

Hi Rick, that's a very impressive captures and the header picture is very spectacular.

At last you found your hidden treasures. But 5 years was a bit way too long.... Still got any hidden treasures in your album that haven't see the light? :))

Keep up the good job.
Have a great week ahead,regards.

Please keep backups of your photos also in personally-held folders. Moving things to the cloud sound great until some glitch in a server deletes everything.

Yes, I do. :) I take too many photos and that's the problem. If I don't share them on my blog or Facebook they sit in files waiting and don't get published. These are beautiful photos. I like the golden dome and the curve of that building.

Beautiful images!

These images are really pretty.

Those are stunning....glad you found them! While I do put mine in specific folders and don't tend to lose them, I have yet to learn Lightroom.....that's a topic that has been discussed in our photography club, Lightroom lessons. I'm not sure which of those pics I like better, they're both amazing.

Gorgeous structure, Rick, and I love your perspective in each of these.

Have a wonderful weekend!

It is fun to go in and find the old relics some times. Nice shots. Gotta love those wide lenses.

I like to treasure hunt through my photos as well. Especially the ones of people I've not met till recently and realize I've been shooting them for years.

I love both of the photos, Rick, great composition!

I was able to organise my photos in Lightroom, even add keywords to all of them but I'm way behind with processing them which especially since I shoot in raw is quite a drawback. I try to take it in a positive way - we just have one live to live and need to keep going rather then keep being stuck in archives, don't we? :)
