I was looking through some old photo albums recently, and I found myself filled with so many different emotions as I walked through memory lane. It felt weird to hold a bulky book that contained some of my most fondest memories. Pretty old school. Then just this morning, I was swiping through images on my iPhone, and felt the exact same way I felt looking through my old albums! There are so many captured moments in photographs that can never be repeated again. Whether it's a spontaneous moment with friends, a loved one who passed away, or even your old, dorky high school photos...we all have our way of storing our most cherished memories.
In decades past, there were photo albums, big and small made from leather cloth, decorated with gold, and bound down with porcelain hinges. Then scanners were introduced to the world with a great concept of being able to digitally transfer your printed photo to your computer. From there, you are able to burn them onto a CD or DVD. Then came memory cards, USB, and external hard drives. You can still do all of the above, but it seems that today's photo album is the internet. You can shoot images on your smartphone, post it up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or any other social media application. It's a great tool, and your photos will always be there (as long as nothing crashes of course!). Photographers are provided with a resourceful photo storage and backup system that will offer security to those moments we cherish in our digital photo collection. Online photo storage allows you to save your memories for ages, so that you can continue to capture more memories and take more photographs. I find it really amazing how much has changed from the days of adding hundreds of photos to a tangible photo album, to now where we can store the same amount of photos into a small electronic device.
So my question to you is: Where do you store your favorite memories?
