Recently I have been sorting through or old photographs to try to put them into some sort of order. This is not as easy as one might think. For a start one gets caught up looking at teh photographs so the task takes twice as long. Of course you have to remember the dates of all the photographs but at least the locations are usually clear. Anyway I now have all the photographs neatly away, so that I can find the one I want with no trouble at all! I'd like to say thankyou to lettuce for the idea of doing this rebus post, and for the help she gave me. I hope you can read what I have written. If you can, let me know by writing what you think I have written in the comment box.
Cheers!

What a great idea! I have to say though....if you click on all the pictures, the word you wanted to use comes up in the title of the picture. Me...a cheat? LoL.

Flowerpot said...

What a task! Yes, that sort of thing usually takes me hours if not days - like looking i a dictionary, you get wonderfully distracted. A task for this weekend, I think, given the weather forecast!

Akelamalu said...

Well done miss u, did you cheat????? :)

Akelamalu said...

It didn't take me too long surprisingly flowerpot. Now keeping them in order is a different matter altogether! :(

Queenie said...

Elween said...

like to way you did but it took me a long time to upload all the pictures.haha :)

and i am tagged? ho ho ho! i am so excited! :)

RUTH said...

I need to do this with all the photos I have on the computer. When I first started blogging I carefully named each photo to make it easy to find...then I got a digital camera! It's so easy to take LOADS of photos which of course I never find time to name. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack when I'm searching for an old photo.
Great post; I enjoyed trying to work it out. Needless to say the "Cheers" at the end was the easiest...LOL

Akelamalu said...

Dan work it out! :)

Akelamalu said...

Something for you to do whilst you're laid up after you op Queenie. :)

Akelamalu said...

I'll be over later to check our your tag elween.:)

Akelamalu said...

All our recent photos have been downloaded straight onto the hard drive Ruth into their own folders, so they're easy to find.

Akelamalu said...

Yes Bee digital makes it so much easier. Glad you enjoyed it. :)

Akelamalu said...

Oh thanks Sally. :)

Akelamalu said...

I aim to please Bella. x

Dumdad said...

That was fun. I had no trouble at all reading it. No, I didn't cheat or look over Miss Understood's shoulder.

Lovely masthead, too. I've tried to include a picture for my masthead which would be apposite to my blog but the bloody thing doesn't align properly and I don't know how to fix it. Even my son (who's smarter than me in these things) couldn't help.

Akelamalu said...

dumdad - not so dumb then? :)

Thanks re the banner. I would prefer it to be smaller but I don't know how to resize it so it stays!

Drunk Mummy said...

How long did that take to put together? Fantastic! I loved the 'Cheers' pic at the end!

Pauline said...

What a brill idea, you must have the patience of several saints!

Akelamalu said...

drunk mummy it didn't take too long and I got the idea from Lettie at Lettuce-Eating
http://lettuce-eating.blogspot.com/

Have a go, email me if you need help. :)

Akelamalu said...

Pauline I love doing anything on the computer, doesn't matter how fiddly and it keeps me out of MWM's hair!! :)

buffalodickdy said...

Can be a big project! When my folks died, we had to go thru a lifetime of theirs stored in boxes. It took forever because each one brought back a memory...

Claire said...

During this long long internet isolation period i have sorted out nearly all my digital images and have started scanning old photos i want a copy of.

Jenny! said...

Oh...that was so much fun! Going through pictures is so much fun, but it usually takes a lot of time because you spend time reminiscing about the pictures...so much fun! Can you post like that again sometime! I loved it! So creative!

Akelamalu said...

buffalodickdy I'm dreading the time I have to do the same to my Dad's photos - he has thousands!

Akelamalu said...

Ah you see Claire every cloud has a silver lining! ;)

Akelamalu said...

Oh so glad you enjoyed it Jenny, I will do another one, why not try one yourself? :)

lettuce said...

Akelamalu said...

I really did enjoy it lettuce, thanks for your help. :)

Skittles said...

This is the most creative, innovative post I think I've ever seen!!!!

You've been tagged with the multi-part meme :)

Akelamalu said...

Thanks skittles, I have to confess I got the idea from Lettuce. :)

I'll be over shortly to take a look at the meme.

Catch said...

Mom is getting her cast taken off July 2....so far she is doing well, we both will be glad to see it come off though!!!!

Have a great weekend!

julia said...

I think this pretty much sums up why I've annointed you yet again with another of those old awards to clutter up your linen closet shelves. Thinking Blogger number three! You've simply got to stop being so fabulous.

Akelamalu said...

Great news about your Mum Catch, hope it all goes well.

Glad you enjoyed the post. :)

I'm truly honoured Julia thank you. ((big beaming smiles))
