If you are a follower of elladeeimages, you’ll possibly already have read the details below, and know I chose an image from the archives/fortuitously downloaded images, from each month of 2012 that didn’t get posted, and put together art in the everyday: 2012 retrospective of elladeeimages.
If you are a follower of elladeewords you’ll possibly also have read about the demise of my beloved blogging tool, my smart phone. If you haven’t read the post I ask you to consider it’s “far better to learn the lesson than to be the lesson”… and step away from your phone if you’ve had a tough day.
The circumstances of the demise of my phone also resulted in it requiring professional attention to recover the photos, which were last backed up in early November 2012. Of course backing up Nov 12-Feb 13 was an item on my 2013 Return to The Post Holiday World To-Do List which I hadn’t ticked off. Cross your fingers for me please. There were holiday snaps and future blog post photos that would be a blow to lose.
Both the G.O. and my phone contracts are up next month, and we have a spare unsmart phone I’m using for calls & text while I undertake a due diligence process before making a 2 year commitment to new phones. But, the unsmart phone doesn’t take photos of any quality. Our digital camera is somewhat cumbersome to wander around with, so elladeeimages where I post “moments & colours of ordinary things & day-to-day life” is in hiatus.
elladeeplaces isn’t necessarily in hiatus because some posts are inspired by the memory or a feeling about somewhere I’ve visited in the not too distant past, and I use photos from the archives. That said, I also posted in 2012 a few places we did actually get to. For elladeeplaces: another look at 2012 I’ve chosen a photo from the archives of each month of 2012 that didn’t get posted… the upshot of which is a clear message that we didn’t venture far in 2012.
