I just love this picture. It was one I had forgotten about until I started editing, or I should say reediting all of my photo files on Abby. There have been lots of tears shed but I find when I am working on her images I feel a peacefulness too. I have so much editing work ahead of me because I have so many photos of her. Not enough, no complaints on my part -- I wish I could take a zillion more of her. So I had decided after doing a bit of research that the best way to store my images is to have hard copies of everything that I cherish. I already have cloud storage plus external storage and even extra external storage because well things fail. So now I will have physical hard copies as well. So I have quite an assortment of backups to my backups.
I know all of this may sound extreme but if you follow any professional or semi professional photographers you will know that storage options fail all the time so it's best to have back ups to all your back ups. I don't depend on an income for my photographs but they are as precious to me as anything I own. So, I am trying to preserve them based on problems other have had and learning from their mistakes.
Those precious little eyes peering over the top of the basket at me while I am taking her picture melts my heart even to this day. Hard to believe it was 7 years ago. If only I could go back in time...and I still think of the movie Somewhere In Time and wish it were true. We all want do overs on some things, even though it's not something we can ever have.
Just miss that furry face.
I know I always will.
Even though I carry her within my heart at all times.
I miss her daily presence.
Loving you Abby
to the Moon
and again and again.
