    Good one CJ. Years from now your daughter will feign horror that you took this, but inside she'll love you for it.

    If she complains tell her this was her brief "ugly duckling" phase.

    BTW, nice pic!

    Great photos of a stunning subject CJ. Make sure you preserve the Santa photo. She'll love it way down the road, and here's why. Santa and me at Macy's NYC, early 1950s.

    Ha, that didn't last very long. How about that plaid sports jacket?

    CJ, I did not intend to hijack your thread, but just show how valuable photos are down the road. In this case about 65+ years. Hopefully, digital media will be around when your beautiful daughter will be able to appreciate them. Once an archivist, always an archivist!

    yeah, i was gonna comment on the PLAID SPORT COAT...
    but couldn't think of anything Pithy or snarky...so, stick to the
    Nice cutie nostalgia theme. I agree about the value of old photos.

    Not at all!

    I keep pretty good redundancy of my critical files. Over time everything will migrate to "The Cloud" and should be around.

    When I worked for the National Archives we struggled with the concept of data migration for preservation. We were concerned primarily with the hardware to "play back" obsolete media, which is less of a concern now with cloud storage. We're also becoming less dependant on stuff that spins. We don't know what's over the next hill, but data preservation will be just as much of a challenge when we get there. It's not a problem for us old paper-based guys.
