Amazing what you can do these days...

During a spring clean I found a large number of negatives taken by my wife when touring Europe in the early 1980s, so I started scanning them.

While the identity of some pictures is pretty obvious (Eiffel Tower etc) many gothic churches look much like others. So I take a picture of the screen with Google Goggles on my Nexus 4, and half the time it identifies the subject!

If you are old enough to be married to someone who was in her early twenties in 1980, then you are old enough to think that is pretty cool.

No, just using the Google Goggles app on my Nexus 4 phone.
