The death of Peaches Geldof prompted me to think about what would happen if/when I die? What memories would my son have of me? I see from the news that Peaches Geldof took a lot of family photos.
Like most people, I have a lot of CD, DVD drives etc with lots of photos and videos on them. I doubt someone would take the time to go through all of these media drives for photos; certainly, I never bother.
I didn’t want those photos and memories to be lost. Since my son and I do a lot together, there are a lot of photos of him but not so many of us together, because I am the one holding the camera. I am going to change that. I’ve decided that I will ask passers-by to take our photographs together more so we have photos together.
How did I set up my online time capsule? So what I have done is this:
– I’ve set up a OneDrive account for my son, with an email address and a password which I have given to him. Go to www.onedrive.com for your free account.
– I’m going through all those hard drives, flashes, old phones etc with photos on them
– I am categorising them roughly by date, and creating a folder for each year.
– I’m then uploading all the photos, by year, onto OneDrive using my son’s email address and password.
– I have also done the same for my father. He is my backup.
It’s a gift that never stops giving
