The cold temperatures have made it quite uncomfortable to work in the basement for any length of time. The one reprieve we have had I used to get all the outdoor Christmas decorations taken down and put away. I also used the time to place a few odds and ends on Craigslist (non-railroad items) to continue to clean excess out of the basement.
I also enjoy photography and am getting into post processing of images. I have started learning to use Adobe Light Room. It is not only useful for making adjustment to images, it also helps create a way to tag the images with information such as names, locations and quality of the image and so on. GPS information can be recorded here if you have a cameras so equipped. I also have a scanner to bring in many older, analog images. I built a small work station to make working simpler, and to keep material from getting scattered around my dinning or living room. I used an old table I have from the old apartment living and added casters to the wheels so I can roll it around the basement to keep it out of the way. I us a lap top, so I use an older but nice external monitor, as size does matter when working on images. The scanner is an Epson V600, it can scan prints, negatives and transparences. I added a keyboard and a mouse and I have a nice post processing work station. The real nice part is I already had all the bits and pieces, other than the casters.
