Shared Identity


Click on photos to enlarge

I have recently discovered that for some reason my Photos app has been issuing the same number for different photos.  When I looked up the number of this first photo to see if I’d previously published it on my blog,  I was surprised to see that although I hadn’t, I had published two other photos by the same number. They were so varied that I decided when I find such oddities, I’m going to publish the various photos.  So here, folks, are  photos # 6212!!! Could they be more different? Well, actually, the photo of Zoe curled up in a box the day after she popped up in my life does looks a bit like the orange curled up in its exploded skin, but don’t know what that snowy egret is doing in the bunch.

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

        This is ALL the information. Maybe it’s because I give file names to all my pictures. I could never find them otherwise.

    Wonderful images and intriguing post, Judy. I discovered the same problem with image numbers two years ago. In my case, I believe it resulted from my Canon’s date/time not being updated and out of such with the computer and also the fact that the numbers being assigned needed an extra value because I have taken so many e.g. 10001 vs 100001. Things were being overwritten and lost. Fortunately I have the originals of every single digital card used, so I can recover them all – in my next lifetime because life is too short to resolve it in this lifetime lol. Even my 3 huge external drives were affected by the duplicated numbers and lost images. I thought I was losing my mind. Good luck to you and everyone else with this issue!
