Hey y’all. I’m new in this blogging world so be kind.
Today I want to talk about photo preservation. I’m sure this is not a new topic especially with all the tons of digital photos we are all taking every day. Last Thursday night I noticed everyone taking selfies at the NFL preseason game. I was at the Cowboys/Texans game in Arlington. Yeah, a Texas team won! But you already knew that. Ha!
Now back to my topic of photos. I wondered what are all these thousands of people doing with these photos. Just in the stadium, there were at least 50,000 people there taking photos with their cell phones. Yes, I know they are sending and posting to various social sites. But what happens later? How long does someone wait before they delete these photos? Or do they?
It’s kind of sad in a way that most people don’t print their photos anymore. I would guess a small percentage bother to move them into any kind of print form– like a printed book of some sort. Of course, there are a few people like family historians or shall I say “scrapbookers” out there that love keeping up with their ever growing photo logs. Or perhaps you professional Photographers out there have a system to keep your influx of photos logged and organized. But I’m not talking about those who do this for a living, just the plain ole folk out there that snaps photos everyday without much thought of what to do after they’ve sent them out into our cyber world.
So if you have never given this a thought, please, let’s discuss this topic of photos, photos everywhere. I’m curious what you plan to do with your ever growing photo log.
I hope you will leave me your thoughts here.
Oh, a note on the football game…it was just a preseason opener. I wore my one and only Cowboys shirt, but could have rooted for the Texans. Texans won.
Have a wonderful labor day weekend, y’all.
