    ... has been on a trip to Namibia.
    She came home yesterday. Well, in customs in either Frankfurt (already) or Windhoek (didn't quite get it), one of the officers already wondered a bit about the amount of film she was carrying. 50 rolls. He quickly calculated that that would stand for 1800 photos.
    OK.
    She also had bought herself the same kind of compact digital camera like mine. And thought, uh-oh, I better take enough cards with me.

    So she had room for another about 1300 digital photos.

    She filled "only" 46 of her rolls.
    And both flashcards and a bit.

    It will take A LIFETIME to sort through all these, I'm afraid!
    And I wonder: will you ever get to see any of them? Will she make it to here to post them?

    What would you suggest I do to her to make her come and share some (not all... my - bandwidth might suffer just a tad)??? Any ideas?

    Or what will we do to her if she doesn't?

    Tomorrow morning, after I'll have dropped my daughter off at the pool in town for her morning training unit, I will drive right through to my home-town (or birth place or whatever the word is for that town), to where my family still live (and I used to until 6+ years ago) - including, of course, that sister of mine!

    And I'll stay there for the weekend and only return on Sunday night.
    Guess what she has asked me to do?
    Sort through her photos with her. 2800 all in all, some 1600 of which are in print :shock: !!!
    And she wants my help for downloading her digital photos into her computer. Why does she need my help? I say, haven't you got the software with the camera? There was a CD with it, wasn't there? Put it into the slot and let the computer install the software, what is so difficult about it? "Ah, but, erm, well, you better be by my side for that!" :roll: :roll: :roll:
    But ok.
    She told me on the phone that she is having one little problem: none of her photos (the prints) have any technical faults. They are all good.
    How is she going to decide which ones to show up here?
    And hey: she is, indeed, speaking about showing some of her Namibia-photos here!!!!! Now that is quite something, don't you think?

    And hey: my dad, young man of 75 years of age, was in Africa at the same time as my sister was (first two weeks of October), only was he in the north (Libya). With his bike. Cycling through the desert (with a group of other cyclists that he knows well and with whom he has been on many a trip to Arabia and so on - Jordan, Oman, Lebanon...). He had announced on the phone that his photographic outcome would not be so good, in all likelihood, for he felt he was losing his abilities, well, what with the almost total loss of his eyesight in one eye after his detached retina eye surgery, for example.

    But then my sister told me on the phone that with his photos our dad was having quite a different problem.
    ALL good!

    Oh well.
    I want to have SUCH problems ;) ;) ;).

    Should I ask my dad to give me some prints for scanning and showing?

    I think I need not post in the Friday-thread. I have already told you here what I am going to do on the weekend.
    Who wants to see photos from Namibia then?
    Or Libya (if I can manage that)?
    If I can show her that there is some OVERWHELMING (!) interest on here, she might want to post even more seriously!?!?!

    I want to see them, too! :) It sounds like it was an amazing trip!

    And since they're all supposed to be good, I guess we DO what you'll be up to all weekend. Tell your sister thanks! :lol:
