We’re still resting up in Blenheim after a hard week resting up down the Sounds. 🙂 We’ve managed a walk in the Wither Hills. [By the way 2Degrees, that’s the correct spelling of Wither Hills – not Whither as your new tower is mis-naming itself all over town.] We partook of the Garden Fete on Sunday in Seymour Square in Blenheim. And we’ve generally mooched around. I’ve been getting back into learning Lightroom – all the better to sort and play with my photos.
I’ve been figuring out how to tag each photo with its GPS co-ordinates. This is a lot of fun. And it makes up for not having a camera that does it automatically. I’d started thinking that having a camera do the GPS stuff would be the only way to go. But now that I’ve realised I can do it manually later – mostly. Sometimes it’s a bit hard deciding exactly where a photo was taken. But 98% of it is easy. And it’s quick and simple to do. I’ve not yet found anything in particular to do with those GPS co-ordinates but I suspect that the value will become more obvious somewhere down the track.
So far I’ve GPSed the last few hundred photos I’ve taken. Now I’ve just got the back-catalogue of 56,000 more to go! I keep wondering if I should stop taking more until I’ve got the existing ones under control. But then I think it is one of the more compact collections/compulsions. What else could you hoard 56,000 of in something the size of your hand? Long-live the portable hard drive!
