Funky Photo Stuff - Albums
If your house was burning down and you could only save one possession from the fire, what would it be?
Stop reading this.
No, seriously, stop reading this and go up into the attic, to the back of the wardrobe or whereever else it is, that you’ve put your box of photos and have a look at them.
There’s the one of you as a kid wearing those bright red wellies you went everywhere in. There’s the one of Nan in all her Sunday best, smiling from ear to ear. There’s the one your Dad took of you on the ferry, soaking wet, green to the gills and feeling sea sick. You look so miserable in it. He laughs everytime he see’s it.
And then, there’s the one that you’ve forgotten all about.
The one that you can’t believe you’d forgotten about. The one you can’t replace. The one you’ve just found... again.
The one that means absolutely everything to you.
You know, if you care about those photos, if you want your kids, your grand-kids to see them, you really ought to put them in albums. A photo album might seem like a bit of an old-fashioned idea, but like butterflies, chocolate milkshake or diamonds, their appeal is timeless.
Honestly, which would you rather hold in your hand, a USB stick with a “My Pictures” folder or an album entitled “Love, laughter and my red wellies”, which contains a lifetime of your memories, some handwritten notes and photos that you cherish?
Are you still here?
