Is the digital age the end of photos?
Now you may read this and think ‘No I have loads of photos!’.
But where are those photos? I am guessing on the most part you’re a social media sinner like me. I have 100’s of photos, but you will not see many of them around my house. They are trapped in my laptop, on my Facebook, or overflowing in my Photobucket…
It seems many of us these days are lazy snappers, we will whip our phone out and take photos. We will even upload them and share with friends. But gone are the days where we wait impatiently as Boots develop them and we open them up ready to cringe at the embarrassing photos as they are first glanced upon.
Those embarrassing photos, yes they can be deleted quickly, that is not really the problem. It is those gorgeous photos of our little loved ones that get left in phones, get tweeted or liked, but we don’t appreciate them in our own homes.
There are so many ways to display photos these days. You can go online and find people who can print your photos direct to canvas by uploading an image.
No longer do we have to suffer the plain 6 x 4 mahogany frames that you remember from your childhoods. Instead you can choose from a range of eye catching frames. They will draw your visitor’s eyes, and even yours as you walk around your home. Filling you with that warm feeling when you remember when…
Grandparents especially have lots of photographs about their houses and often have books filled with photographs. This beautiful Grandchild photo frame is something simple, but one that will be adored by any grandparent.
Our little ones, they grow up so fast. We get so caught up in the day to day activities of being new parents that we can forget to organise our photographs.
Then a couple of years down the line you rack your brains trying to remember exactly how old your little one was when he first started sucking his thumb or the day he first smiled at you.
These memories are ones you should cherish, because it won’t be long before they are bigger than you. So cherish being a parent, display your bundle of joy with pride in a cute first year photo frame and you will be surprised how much they change in just one year.
Finally something so simple, but stunning at the same time. Perfect for that first baby photograph to take pride of place on the mantel piece, or placed at your desk at work. It is cute, small and simple.
It is worth it to take the time to print off images from your social media site. There are even booths in super markets now that do the job for you. If you find getting your photos printed difficult there are websites such as Snapfish and Photobox that will do the printing and post them right to your door.
Get your photos out and display them with pride!
