When I did some clearing out this week, I found some old photos. It got me thinking how I don’t place as much importance on photos anymore – you can take them far more easily now, I can use my phone or digital camera or even my laptop but I don’t bother as much. I think it’s because they end up sitting on these devices, never to be looked at again. I used to get excited collecting prints from Boots wondering how they had come out and laughing at ones I didn’t even remember taking. Now I just don’t bother printing that many out.
I’ve decided I need to make myself take more photos and at least share them on here so they aren’t forgotten forever. I went outside on Saturday for the first time in like a week as the sun finally came out. I didn’t go anywhere exciting – just a garden centre but I got some much needed fresh air and was inspired by the pretty flowers and took a couple of photos. When I got home, I decided to make use of the new photo technology and jazz them up a bit.
I checked out Instagram but I prefer two older photo apps actually – Camera+ and ShakeitPhoto. Here are the results:
And here was my self-portrait. You really can jazz up any photo 🙂
Photos capture moments. I must remember to capture mine.
Do you miss printed photos? How do you use photos now?
