Photo Albums

Here in the UK, it’s almost time for new class photos to be purchased. I don't buy them all every year, but I make an effort to get the ones that stand out in quality and pose. I've already got a large amount of pictures and photo albums and the kids are still young. I often wonder where and how we'll store all the photos we have in eighteen years' time. With wedding photo albums, birth, anniversary and graduation pictures, you wonder how one has storage space for anything else. 

Even with the introduction of the digital age, there's still nothing that captures those special 'tying-the-knot moments as splendidly as wedding albums.

On the matter of school photos; on the day, I make sure the kids’ collars are straightened, their hair brushed neatly, and uniforms in tip top shape. 

When I get the proofs back something is invariably out of place. My youngest has the most flyaway hair that's ever graced the head of a little girl. A feature that’s always very noticeable in our photo books. We’ve decorated our walls and albums with school pictures of the kids, many of which I’m not totally crazy about. 

My son, at 10 years old, is in year 6, which is his last year in Primary school. I suppose this means that I have to buy his school pictures this term. I’ve sent back the proofs with the cheque and await yet another school photograph to add to the wheelbarrow of pictures we carry from place to place when we move house (which we're doing soon). 

Are you one for keeping real pictures in albums like we do, or are you one of the new-age babies who store all your pictures digital-style? Have you still got your wedding photo album nestled neatly in your safest draws or have you stored them on the digital camera with grand plans to have them printed one day?

I enjoyed looking over your blog. I found your profile on another blog I follow and I added myself to follow you. You are more than welcome to visit my blog and become a follower if you want to. If I have posted this on your blog before please forgive me. Sometimes it ain't easy being an Old Geezer.

I tend to do a bit of both. I can't seem to let go of printed photos. There's nothing like turning page after page of happy memories.

Thanks guys. I think on average I have more printed photos than digital ones. They just seem more accessible to me and I don't have to dig through several files to get to them.

I can't part with my children's photos, but some how some of them have come up missing, invariably after they were over for a visit and browsing through them. Do you think that is a coincidence?

Anne Lyken-Garner said...

Definitely a co-incidence, Judy! :-)
