Today was about as perfect a fall day as anyone could want – warm but crisp air, blue skies, and peak foliage. Of course, a perfect fall day here in DC makes me wistful for home, because the Southern Tier of New York, with its rolling hills and valleys, really does fall right. I thought, then, I’d make it the focus of today’s Wayback Wednesday post.
This photo is from the fall of 1990, when, for some reason I can’t recall, my cousins (who, like me, were both in college at the time) came up to Binghamton. I no longer remember what all we did on that visit, but I know we took in the foliage, because the shoebox-o-photos has several pictures to prove it.
And speaking of my shoebox, I used a new iPhone app by the same name to “scan” today’s photo using my phone’s camera rather than my regular scanner. It’s a cool little application, with it’s own online sharing and storage. I’m not overwhelmed with the quality of the image, but the original is fairly terrible. (We’re standing in totally the wrong spot to be well lit.) I expect the scans will look better both when I use a better picture and when I get my new iPhone 4S (which should be soon!). But even with lower image quality, I think it’s fine for the blog, since online resolution isn’t that high anyway.
Oh, and aren’t our high-waisted 1990s jeans awful? I’m the first to acknowledge things got a little too low-rise for a while, but right now we seem to be in a nice happy medium between obscene and Ed Grimley.
Do you have photos from your past that you’re willing to share – and a blog to post them on? Play along with Wayback Wednesday by linking back to this post or sharing in the comments so we can snoop into your past, too!
