But as you can probably guess by now, I can say no such thing. All of my old (pre-digital) photos are stuff haphazardly in mismatched boxes and stuffed wherever I can find room. I have always wanted to make lovely keepsake albums but I never seem to get around to it. So the few photo albums I do have on my shelves are never quite finished and nothing special to look at. 99% of the thousands of photos I've taken since going digital sit on my computer completely underutilized and unorganized.
This is just pathetic. I love all of my photos and the memories they represent. I drag my camera everywhere so I preserve those moments in time and then I lock them away forever. A waste.
I just could never find the perfect way to display or organize them all so I just threw up my hands in frustration and gave up. I've decided it has to stop. So rather than finding the "perfect" solution - I'm just going to pick one. I've picked Blurb ( I also looked at Lulu and MyPublisher but picked blurb based on the reviews).
I'm working on a digital photo book of our travels in 2009. Its not all emcomposing. Its not as lovely as a beautiful linen bound, vellum paged, archival album. But its a start, right?
And I do mean a start. I haven't finished a single book yet. Im forcing myself to do something really simple so I can finish it in this century. Wish me luck.
So spill the beans - how do you organize and store your photos???
