Photos – A Start

When I consider the things I would want to have done “if I die today,” having organized photos is one of those things.   

I have never had my photos organized.  They’ve always been in boxes or some type of jumble.  If I’m honest, I’ve never thought of this project as truly being done.  I’ve always thought of it as something I’d like done, and something I’d always get to, but deep in my heart, I never believed I’d do it.

This week, I’m gathering up all my photos in one location to see what I have to deal with.  But more important than that, I need to figure out what I want my photos to do.  How do I want to live with my photos and what purpose do I want them to serve?  To tell you the truth, I don’t know.  I’m going to be thinking about that alot because I think it is the key.

  • Well you’ve got a good start…. That’s a lot of photos. Good luck with your project.

  • That’ll be a lot of work. We tried to organize our photos once and failed miserably. Best of luck to you.

    This is so funny. I was just telling my husband last night that I am going to dig out all my boxes of photos and sort through them and decide what I am going to do with all these memories! Especially the old ones of my Mothers and Grandmothers and figure out how am I going to preserve them.

    :::sigh::: I really *must* do something with all my photos. Perhaps you will inspire me 😀 I’m interested in seeing what you decide to do.

    I know what I want to do with our printed photos, it’s just a matter of getting it done. There aren’t enough hours in the day lately!

    I have a huge box of photos and they are just laying there, not in any type of a book. It’s a huge mess. I doubt I will ever do anything with them. I know, it’s really sad.

    Wow! Good luck with that lot! Deccy x

  • Some years ago, when I was relocating ( for the 4th time in 10 years), I finally decided to go through my boxes and books of photos. I was quite ruthless and got rid of a lot of them. Some pictures, like the ones you take on travels, become quite silly to look at years later. I mean, how many pictures of a statue or close up of a window or door frame does one need, right?!

    As for the rest, they’re quite neatly tucked into a few ornamental boxes and baskets now. I thought I might scan them all and fit them into a little USB…that would be great space wise, but sad, because at the end of the day, there’s nothing quite like the feel of a photo in your fingers.

  • I love all my photos, I feel so I don’t know, flat without them on the walls. They make me happy

    Wow!
    When you are done, can you come over and help me organize?
