“Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language.” Walt Disney
I love to take pictures. In high school I practically always had a disposable camera in my purse and when I went on trips I was picture crazy. I had so many picture frames in my room, plus a bulletin board filled. I still love to take pictures, however now we have a digital camera like so many people do. Our digital camera is great, it’s the kind that snaps quickly like disposable cameras do, you don’t have to wait the five million seconds it takes for other digital cameras to actually take the picture. It’s also big and bulky, but its awesome. I love having it. We did so good taking pictures once a month for Eli’s baby book, I have some in the baby book but still need to have several printed, but at least they are taken and on my computer.
Is it just me or do pictures with a digital camera tend to stay on a computer rather than getting printed? I get my pictures printed less often than I ever used to now that I have the digital camera. I take the picture, load it onto the computer and then tell myself I’ll print them later and then many times I don’t or at least it’s WAY later when they get printed. I don’t ever want to pay to have one or two pictures printed, I always want to wait until I at least have a dozen to make it worth it, so they tend to sit for a while. It’s even worse now with the camera phones. Half the pictures we have of Eli aren’t even with the camera, they are with our phones. Yes you can have those printed, but I’ve already mentioned that process. While I love the ability to delete pictures that didn’t turn out good and pick and choose what I want printed, sometimes I think that it was a little easier to have the disposable camera because you have to get them printed to see anything, there was no uploading to a computer first. Am I the only one who takes forever to have pictures printed?
