seriously, we’re all old enough to remember actually having photos albums right? taking a picture with some old school film camera you just point and click and hope you pick up some decent prints at the Woolco for $2.99.
you peeeeel back that nasty plastic cover on the album page and place 4 images in a perfect square on the page and slide back the plastic cover and carve out the air bubbles.
my mom has a bunch of albums from when i was a baby up to about 3 or 4. its so much fun to flip through them, not to see me, but to see what my parents were like when they were my age. let’s face it, until we were all about 4 or 5 we weren’t gettin around unless it was with the folks in the car, stroller, backpack, wagon, sled, etc…so its fun to look back at my parents haulin my ass around for a few years. we had an old jeep that i wouldn’t ever remember without the photo, skidoos, they dressed me up in ladies clothes for yucks…oh yeah, it’s all in a photo album.
so my question tonight is this…
if the world wide web goes out of business tomorrow, will you be able to show your kids what you looked like 30 years ago?
the internet could be the next coelacanth and you won’t have pictures of your totally trendy skinny jeans to show your kids.
this is the very first photograph i ever took of Marse (& Thai). It only exists here, which sucks if the internet goes out of business. whats also really wierd is that it is almost 4 years ago to the day. huh.
so you should upload a couple of your photos to a cheap lab somewhere (we would have still had the Woolco if we had all kept printing) and put together an album. and keep doing it.
