I used to be really good at keeping up with my photo albums. Every event, vacation, random shots hanging out with friends would all make their way into an album. But over the last few years I have been so busy with my clients’ images I have neglected to print my own. Yes, I do blog some of my personal pictures, but that is not the same. I like having a tangible album. Something to hold in my hands and flip through. Call me old fashioned but there is something about a printed picture that no computer file, blog, or Facebook version can beat. Over the last month or so I set out to sort through the last few years of my life and make some books. I thought I would start at last year and work backwards so I wouldn’t get overwhelmed by how many years I’ve missed. I’m pretty impressed with myself. I have now completed 2011 and 2010. I still have a few more years to go but it’s a good start. If you value photos like I do be sure to take the time to do the same.
Here is a shot from one lovely summer evening in 2010 spent with good friends on the beach near Victoria, B.C.
