Memories: Photos

Last weekend I spent time going through all my photos, writing dates and people on the back then filing them in photo albums. My photo collection started about 8 years ago, before that my mum has a bunch of albums with the whole family. I had some from school, prom, my 18th birthday right up to Christmas 2015 and they just got me thinking about memories, photos to be specific.

When was the last time you got your photos printed? Probably not recently if you're in the digital generation like me. How many photos do you have on your phone? Most likely into the thousands if you're a selfie and Instagram addict like I am. But there's something special about a live photo that you can touch, keep and cherish. An example of one was a picture of one of our family cats who passed away about 2 years ago now. I took it on my DSLR so the quality was there and because of that you could see all the rivets in his fur and almost touch out and stroke him like it was real. A photo from my summer holiday in Greece last year reminds me of the sounds of crashing waves and feeling of sand between my toes, whereas a Christmas party photo recalls laughter and lots of drinking and celebrating.

What started my spur of filing and dating my photos was looking through my grandparents photo albums a few weeks ago. Of course they're all black and white, but I'm sure to them they brought back a lot of memories. It was fascinating to browse through and see all the different fashion styles, foods and places they would've visited 50 years ago. 

It took me a good while to go through all my photos, but I'm up to date to this year. Throughout I was sending my friends and family pictures of us all which may not be on Facebook or on our phones, just little reminders of the good times together. Printing photos can be expensive but I always wait for a deal from Truprint and buy my photo albums from Tiger or on Amazon!

Do you get photos printed? What's your favourite photo memory?
