Another day at sea, as you should know. Weather has been fantastic the last 24 hrs. and I just hope it stays like this for the next three weeks to be honest. Bad weather is never to much fun anyway, and out here it's just a struggle. Every little task of work is getting so much more difficult to get done when the weather is bad. It starts in the morning during the process of getting dressed, and just goes on and on until late evening... Well, as my father used to say when he still was working; we usually choose our own profession, so better just keep shut, work on and leave it be :)
Anyway, I'm in the process now, of cloning the two hard drives and make a doubled-up storage system for them.
The negatives are as safe as possible, I would say. Or safe is probably not the right term, because nothing is totally safe as you start to think of it.
I got a few ring binders sitting on a shelf back home. With negatives in them. That's it, more or less. Nothing bomb proof, as you know. Not fire proof either. You just have to trust that nothing bad will happen. As you do, usually.
I would rather not be sitting in a position where I found that I lost all my thousands of original negatives from 1975 until today.
Well. I was thinking about it a bit earlier today. This blog and all, and what to do with it. I want to keep on writing, but I see that it has become a bit different to what I thought about when I started it. All of you know that I'm dealing with film, old cameras and such, and I thought that would be sort of the main theme through my posts. The reality seem to be a bit different, but maybe some kind of a little bit of this and a little bit of that is a bit better than going on forever about the same small details? I might think that's the way to go.
I will, however, try to pull myself together and post something photographic related soon. I have nothing special in mind at this moment, but will probably come up with something, someday.
No further stories to be told today. I'm in a kind of slow motion mode at the moment you see, just back to work and all. Need to get my mind set first, and then come back with something worth saying :)
So long, to anyone reading this!
And we have reached the end of this drive folks. Here represented by the wind vane and the radar installation at Sumburgh Airport, Shetland.
OK, it might not be that obvious, I see that, but that's what it is anyway, since you ask.
