Wayback Wednesday: Copper Canyon

Ten years ago this week, I went to Mexico for the first time, on a week-long tour of the Sea of Cortez and the Copper Canyon. It was the last trip I took where all of my photos were analog – a few months later, when I went to Scotland, I borrowed my brother’s then state-of-the-art two megapixel (!) digital camera so I could shoot both film and digital. Fast forward to last week when I was in NYC, where I didn’t even bother with my digital camera. I took all my pictures on my iPhone, which has resolution four times better than that camera I borrowed for Scotland. Oh, how quickly technology has changed…

Wayback Wednesday: Trick or Treat, Part 3

I’m nearly out of Wednesday, but before I head off to bed I wanted to share the third and final childhood Halloween photo from my shoebox-o-pictures. (I have no doubt that there are many other costumed pix at my mom’s house, but these are the ones I have.)

Florence Nightingale, 1980.

I think this picture was from the fifth grade, which I believe was the last year I dressed up to go to school. I do remember being not just a nurse, but Florence Nightingale – hence the slightly old-timey look to the outfit. (Yes, I was already a history geek by the age of 10. I expect this is not surprising.)

I’m adding a bonus, totally not old photo to today’s post because it’s seriously the cutest thing I’ve ever seen – my nephew James, in his Halloween costume, in a pile of pumpkins. If you don’t find this adorable… Well, you have no soul. And I say that totally without auntie bias; science could prove the fact of its adorability.

Giraffe!
