Saving photo memories is so important to me. When I take pictures, I don't delete them off my camera card until I've a) loaded them into my documents and b) backed them up on cd. My card isn't very big (holds 200-something images), so I have a heck of a lot of cds now. I save the good, the bad and the blurry, too. Even that furtive smudge that may or may not have been the corner of Samantha's shoulder as she ducked out of the camera's view. I have this thing about not wanting to get rid of anything that may be a glimpse of a moment in time. Steve keeps telling me I can't keep everything, and need to weed out the bad pics because eventually the computer won't be able to hold it all, but I sure don't tell him not to keep downloading more and more music. :-) Maybe it's me holding on to a part of history, but maybe it's just me being a pack rat.
Whatever the case, I began a project a month or so ago on Shutterfly--I began to make a photo book for Steve for Father's Day. It's quite involved, actually. There are so many options to choose from, so many photos to choose from, so much creativity to dig out from somewhere inside that I wasn't sure if I still had. One of the hardest parts was coming up with the words to accompany the photos. I think it turned out okay--here's the link:
The finished product is a lovely, glossy, padded-cover book. This is definitely the kind of project I'd like to do more of. Enjoy!
