My Desk: Starting a New Lightroom Catalog

Day 325 (Nov 21) I've been sitting here a lot in the last couple of days. First it took 6 hours EACH for my 2013 and 2014 photo collections to export from the old corrupt Lightroom catalog. Then I went through all my photo folders to check for organization. Good thing! I discovered three weeks missing from December 2009! I have no idea why, and that bothers me. But I got them back from Smugmug within an hour and a half (which would have been less if there hadn't been the issue with downloading the videos, which didn't work right when downloaded with the whole gallery and I had to download them individually). Now I've opened up a new catalog and set the settings the way I want them. To set my import settings I had to have some photos to import -- hence these!
