Everything has rocked along just fine until I decided to start deleting old Collections because the list was quite long. I was at work and noticed I had missing photos in some collections. Of course all were from 2012. This was aggravating because if I asked it to show me where it was in the library it took me to the photo. So how was it missing?
To make a long story short, I have an extra INternal drive that replaced the dvd drive so it's like an external built in. Lightroom was pointing me to folders on that drive that I had backed up there. I go home to find the same thing. It's pointing me to a folder on my hard drive. It's hard to explain but I ended up throwing all those files in the trash and redirecting Lightroom to the correct folder on the external. whew!!!! Now the kicker is that those 'older' collections aren't linked to those photos anymore. Oh well, I probably needed to get rid of them anyway.
On to a happier note… It's time for Friday Finds at Kim's blog.
A prior lesson in Be Still class was to photograph spoons from different angles of light. My memory told me I had some of my Great grand-mother's spoons tucked away somewhere. (actually they were right under my nose neatly wrapped with a piece of 50 year old scotch tape) A perfect set of 4 and 2 other strange ones. I decided to use the odd one first, possibly a sugar spoon or perhaps it was used for jam.
I decided the others photographed better.
Another thing I found this week was this cool coffee bean sack. You'll see it used for a lot more backdrops in the future. Thanks you Viv for this idea. I've had the old bottle for a long time. It deserves to be in more photos too. I used a 2 Lil Owls texture. You can see my layers panel below.
