December 2004 is a mystry w/r to
photos. Apparently I did not post anything from this month at the time. A few
years later I was working through folders of unposted photos and noticed that
nothing existed from December of 2004... except for one "purple house somewhere
in Seattle" shot. This is strange because I'm sure that I took a Christmas trip
to North Carolina. Christmas 2004 was our first Christmas without Father and I'm
sure that I went to Charlotte for that holiday. I cannot say for sure why I do
not have photos from December of 2004.
Perhaps the Christmas 2004 trip to
Charlotte was just a short trip, with red eye travel... but that would not
explain the absence of photos from the entire month of December (except for the
aforementioned "purple house" shot).
I have a vague memory of having
encountered a camera problem on a trip to North Carolina, sometime back in the
early-mid 2000's. A fuzzy fragment of memory exists in which I bought a camera
charger at Wolf Camera on Independence Blvd. in Charlotte. I also recall once
buying a replacement camera at Biggs Camera on Kings Dr. in Charlotte, from Troy
Tomlinson. Did I experience a camera breakdown in December of 2004? The memory
fragments above may be completely unreleated to December of 2004.
I'm not yet convinced that a folder
of photos from December of 2004 does not exist somewhere, on some old drive or
disc. Why does only a single shot, the "purple house" shot, exist from that
month? It would seem that whatever is responsible for the missing files would
have also "lost" that shot as well. It is as if I only saved 1 photo from the
entire month of December 2004... a month that included Christmas and a trip to
North Carolina... which is highly unlikely. Strange...
Sunday, December 19
Seattle, WA... a purple house... somewhere in Seattle...
