NOSTALGIA IN PHOTOGRAPHY – Marilyn Armstrong

A Photo a Week Challenge: Nostalgia

Nostalgia. I lost most of my early pictures to the “I love you” virus in the late 1990s. It destroyed every single picture I had stored since I started using a digital camera. I didn’t have a backup. The lesson was most painfully learned.

Now, I have backups. More than one. Multiples. So instead of nostalgic pictures, this is as good a selection of old or older pictures I could find. Some go back to the early-1940s. Most are more recent.

 

Really old friend.

  4. Thanks for taking us along on your memory lane. Your photos are astonishing and always inspire me. I am truly sorry about the loss of those early photos, but sometimes we do indeed learn something from our mistakes and hopefully correct the issue so it doesn’t happen again.

  6. I guess you don’t realize how important those photos are until something like that happens. I would be heart broken to lose ours.

  7. I read about the “I Love You” virus in one of David’s books, he was always interested in computer crime. I think you are the first person I’ve met who was a victim of it. Although people take many more photos these days I think that many of them will be lost due to changes in technology, viruses or just failure to back up. I have photo albums and boxes of slides which I had to leave behind when I was evacuated during the fires but I did take my portable hard drive with all my more recent photos on it. I don’t actually know who would want my photos after I’m gone but as long as I’m here I want them.

  8. These are still great photos with lots of memories, Marilyn. These viruses are really doing no good, sorry to hear about losing your older collection.
