50,000 Photos and Counting

Posted in Uncategorized by Memory Streams on July 18, 2011

I’ve taken at least 50,000 photos in my life.  I’ve got over 40,000 digital photos on my computer now and I figure I had to take another 10K before that with actual film.  So basically those are lost unless I could find the negative (not!) or have it scanned in. Those 1970s photos are fading into black in every album I have.   Ironically the few snapshots I have from the 60s or even the 20s look better than those Kodak moments of the 70s and 80s.

I’m excited to say that I had my first photo published this month in Southwest Airline’s Spirit magazine.  If you’re flying Southwest, check out page 38 and see a 2006 photo I took of my daughter jumping off a tall rock at Slide Rock Park in Arizona.

Today I was making an invitation to my father’s memorial service on August 29th.  I searched thru old and new photos to put on the photo card.  I was trying to find just the right photos for it.  It occurred to me that it would be great to have had a Memory Stream for each person in my life with a photo of them every year.  Finding their best photos would be a snap. (so to speak!)
