Geologising. Tromso was a stop on the way to Spitsbergen from Oslo (in that airplane). We picked up a boat in Tromso and spent the next month living on it.
There's no vibrations, but wait.

Hope you don't mind.  I was seeing what was left in that photo and how recoverable it was.



Another advantage of digital photography is that they don't deteriorate (They are just subject to total catastrophic loss en-masse).
Some people say I'm self-obsessed but that's enough about them.

I used to think that, but then I saw the sort of thing my mother-in-law gets up to with digital images.

Ob-xkcd:




I reckon it's easier to prevent catastrophic loss of digital data than the canonical shoebox full of negatives, it's just that most people don't think it'll happen to them so can't be arsed.

Don't mind at all. Cheers!
I have many old slides that could do with a similar treatment. One day I might get round to it.

If you project slides onto a big white wall you can prepare your camera to save lots of time.  Take a custom white balance, dial in some manual picture profile settings ..etc (so yo udon' thave to do it al lin Photoshop)

Ah, but that would require the purchase of a projector. I used a light box for the one I posted.

Ah!  Another saxophone-playing geoscientist?

I was then, briefly. Now I'm just saxophone playing.

I spent the early years of my career geologising on boats - but for engineering studies, not petroleum.  But that was 40 years before I launched into learning to play the sax. Good fun though, chucking side scans, boomers, maggies and various bottom samplers off the arse end of workboats, and living on Dutch coffee.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.  I could have done a better job with my DSLR but not in the 10 seconds it took to take this photo with my phone.  It would have taken much effort in Photoshop to do this with my camera.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge + Snapseed editor.  I don't regret not having my "good" camera with me at all.

I learned the hard way, so now got my photos in the cloud, on 2-3 hard disk in house and one off site.

I think the xkcd is good but missed out the step where the only way you can send photos was to put them into a word.doc - shudders.

Sod it.  I can't look at one xkcd cartoon without looking at a dozen.

I wonder if they've done one about that.
