On occasion I photograph happenings at my children’s school, and while I’m good at taking the pictures, I’m not so great at passing them along. The memory card in my camera has photos dating from Labor Day; some, I’ve previously uploaded and deleted, but mixed among my personal shots are several school events.
After shooting a luncheon for sophomore girls yesterday, I was disgusted with my procrastinatory photographical delays, so I handed the memory card to my daughter and asked her to upload the pictures they needed for yearbook; then bring the card home.
It’s the same card I used for Blissdom ’08 this past weekend, and I needed it to complete a post.
Wait a second…IT’S THE SAME CARD I USED FOR BLISSDOM–A CONFERENCE HELD AT A HOTEL BAR, COMPLETE WITH A COCKTAIL HOUR AT THE END OF THE DAY!
Ai yi yi…! I just assumed they’d copy only the pictures from school events, not the whole dang card. My daughter greeted me today after school with a "…it sure was ‘nice’ having everybody see pictures of me wakeboarding and your martinis…" and thank goodness she couldn’t remember at that moment what else came up.
I’m scared to look at the card. I KNOW what I’m capable of photographing!!!
Before I could complete the sentence–"I just assumed they wouldn’t upload the whole card…"–Rachel said, "You know what happens when you ‘assume’…" and I realized she does, in fact, listen to me after all.
So, can someone tell me if that’s a good thing or not? 😉
