Did you know that May is National Photo Month? This year’s theme is “Capture and Keep.” With the move to digital photography over the last decade, we find more of our pictures are ending up on our computers instead of in our photo albums or on our walls.
What better time than National Photo Month to take got through the photo library you have online or on your computer?
Find that favorite photo of that amazing vacation you took but now just sits collecting the occasional like on Facebook. Turn it into something special by Aluminyzing it and displaying it in your living room.
Maybe your office looks a little stale and the only photos you have of your kids are three years old. Find the gorgeous picture you took of the kids on a hike somewhere and Aluminyze. The picture you emailed to Grandma and Grandpa, but now just sit in your Flickr photo stream. Upload it and Aluminyze it! Maybe the gorgeous instagram photo of your garden from last spring. Or your favorite picture of your great-grandparents that you scanned and did nothing with.
Photographs were not meant to be computer files. They were not meant to collect dust in photo boxes. They should be in beautiful albums, scrapbooks, and most of all displayed in all their beautiful cherished Aluminyzed glory for all to see.
“Capture and keep.”
To me that means Capture the moments that make life magical, and keep them somewhere where that magic can touch you each and every day.
What does this years National Photo Month theme mean to you? We’d love to see what pictures you have taking up hard drive space that should be Aluminyzed and on display!
“Pictures, regardless of how they are created and recreated, are intended to be looked at. This brings to the forefront not the technology of imaging, which of course is important, but rather what we might call the eyenology (seeing).” -Henri Cartier-Bresson
