Rediscovering my pictures
I recently discovered that I had packed away a small external hard drive that had some pics from the 2007 and 2008 Monterey Historics. So, I plugged it into my laptop (MacBook by the way) and went through the pictures. I had put the pictures on the hard drive so that I could post them to my other website, the one featuring pics from the races I'd gone to.
I am often amazed at some of the pictures I've taken, especially at the races. I came upon this picture of a 1973 Chevron B23. I won't bore you with details of the car. It was the simple fact that I hadn't really looked at a lot of the pics from the 2008 Monterey Histroics (which is when this pic was taken), other than when selecting a new desktop background for my laptop.
The lesson is (or was): Sometimes we don't know how decent of a photographer we really are until we look at some of the things we did in the past with our camera(s). Sure, friends and family are going to tell you that you have a gift. Lets face it, we don't always believe it. This was a nice lesson to learn, and I thought I would share it with you.
