Review those Photos

This is your periodic reminder to check those images when you have the item in front of you. I found two photographs in an envelope on which my great-grandmother had written the identification.

I took an overview shot of the envelope and the pictures and then took enlargements of the two photographs. The items were in my storage unit and I put them back and left the unit before I returned home.

It was when reviewing the photographs that I discovered when I moved to get an enlargement of the photo in front of the Shangri-La that I moved and the resulting glare from a light caused me to lose whatever was on the door.

In this case, I will simply have to go back and get a better picture when I have time. But there are times when that’s not possible. Spend an extra few seconds and make certain your images are good.

Because you won’t always have the ability to go back.
