There are BOXES of photo albums that my parents established back in the day.
They are mainly full of memories made by my Mum and Dad, pre-kids. The parties had with friends, Christmas get-togethers, vacations to tropical destinations and the “bragging” photos of my Dad’s catch for the annual fishing derbies that he always cleaned house at.
Then my sister came along, and there were loads of pictures capturing her first few years. She was in fact the first grandchild, so she was completely doted on.
When I arrived, there were still lots of pictures taken of me, but not nearly as many as Thing 1.
Back then, when you wanted to take pictures, you had a roll of film and a flash cube (I know, what are those?). And then, these usually maxed out at 12-48 exposures. Needless to say, it was time consuming and expensive to take pictures during the Stone Age.
When we eventually got a Polaroid camera, we thought that we had arrived!
Flash forward, thirty years and enter digital cameras with massive memory cards and filters that make photographing your life more enjoyable. And if you can’t afford one of these magnificent pieces of equipment, we are able to capture ANYTHING and EVERYTHING on our Smartphones. You don’t even need to be a professional photographer to grab some amazing images. And with the available apps, you can enhance your photos using filters and other tools to make them unique and mesmerizing.
Video cameras have also come a long way since the Super 8. No more film, everything is digital as well.
There’s even a fantastic new app called OneDay, that you can download to your mobile device.
Using OneDay, you ask your child a variety of (age specific) questions that you capture through video on your mobile device and compile to create a mini movie that is so much fun to create.
My daughter and I had fun the other day while her little brother was napping…
