If your house were on fire, what would you grab? Not too long ago, I found myself evacuating a guesthouse when the fire alarm went off. I grabbed my kindle & my laptop before leaving the building. After being told it was a false alarm, I found myself pondering my choice of “grab”. I quickly realised the reason for my choice. My photos are stored on my laptop and they are priceless and I love to read (who needs a wallet and passport anyway?). I have never been more certain of the importance of printing my photos than I was at that moment.
Photos Then and Now
Let’s face it, digital slide shows just aren’t as exciting as paging through a beautifully printed photobook. My grandmother didn’t show me photos of my father growing up on a computer screen. No, instead, there were hundreds of photo albums, with yellowed pages and red-tinged photos. If our grandparents could make the effort of printing photographs, we certainly have no excuse!
