Old Photographs

Slim pickings on the dump lately.  Makes me shift gears.  I see a lot of old pictures come through on the recycle line.  I can't help but think that someone, someday, would be thankful to have these family pictures.  Instead, they were discarded.

I think about photo albums often.  I'm worried that we'll lose the photographic record of who we are.  Why?  I probably have 5,000 digital photographs saved on three different old laptops.  It's easy to pull up a picture on your laptop until the laptop is dead.  We need to print out more pictures, lest we lose them.


  1. I've been scanning and cataloging old photos, only to learn that digital may be far more limited in life than I first realized.

  2. It's as fragile as a piece of paper....maybe worse.
