We moved from Cincinnati to Greenwood in 1999. We built our pool in the spring and summer of 2000 in our new house. It was the summer of 2001 that we had the pool for the full summer (during construction our goal was July 4th, 2000 for pool completion, that like many things didn’t happen). Entering 2001 we had a functional pool. We would change a lot of things over the years as far as the pool, but for the most part, this was the beginning.
The pictures today are from a series of picture disks, during the transition from film to a digital camera. The film images show the pool and of course all the yard things that would later change. The first few pictures are from the Indianapolis Zoo, ending up in the backyard. In the days of film cameras, we would have two, three or even four events or more on a single 24 or 36 picture roll of film. We now don’t do that, but that was the case in the days of 10 dollar development for pictures.
I wonder how many pictures from 1984 on I didn’t take. It was expensive to take pictures both film and development. I know with cell phones and digital cameras that I take many more pictures now than I did then. How many did we miss? It is something I have spent considerable time thinking about. First off because there are so many digital images now that I wish I had some of the lost images back even though that isn’t feasible.
