Saving Tuesday



When you live in a little house, like we do, you learn to keep only the most important things. And, if new things come in, something must go out. I spend a fair amount of time in the donation line at Good-Will.
With my digital photographs I am different. I have trouble parting with them. And, I want to work on taking less and deleting more. From this idea I am starting "Saving Tuesday". A weekly post of found photographs that I have never looked at, from files that I am deleting. The ones I'll show are the ones I am keeping. Sometimes they will be random, like today. Other weeks they may all come from the same forgotten day. It will be interesting to see what turns up... I hope you'll join me.

P.S. I am also hoping to bring back "Wednesday's In the Garden" this week. Even though it is supposed to snow.

Alicia, this is a brilliant idea! These are wonderful. It's truly a gift to go through and find these little hidden jewels. I'm looking forward to your next ones as well.

Hello there! I just want you to know that I love your works! Everything is just perfect. :) I love vintage photographs, so when I came across your site, it was love-at-first-sight. Take care!

I love this idea! I was thinking along similar lines recently while trawlling through some old photos. I really need to spend some time organising everything and sorting it all out. Great selection this week.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I love your work and I'm sure your found treasures will be lovely.

I especially like the third photo today.
