I’m more than a little attached to my mate Jonny. For those of you who don’t know, Jonny is my well loved DSLR. I’ve always been keen on taking photos to preserve memories; from taking a disposable camera with me on a big night out in my twenties to capturing precious moments in my children’s lives, I have thousands and thousands of images stored on my laptop.
Albelli, a leading photo printing company, have done some research into our relationships with our cameras and some of their findings are really quite surprising – despite 81% of Brits saying they treasure family photographs the most, 67% of young Brits admit to not having any recent photos with their parents! I can’t help but think they’re really going to regret that in years to come. (And in fact 60% of Brits admit they already do regret not taking more photos with their parents) I’m pleased to say there are a couple of rather comical family selfies from our trip to York Races earlier in the month but I’m afraid I’m not about to share those with you here – I may never be forgive!
I wrote a post a few year ago about the importance of pictures – I was painfully aware that there just weren’t enough photos of me and the kids. In part because I was always the one taking the pictures, but also because I had a tendency to delete the pictures I didn’t like (which was most of them). Since writing that Dave & I have both made more of an effort to make sure I’m “in the picture” though there’s still room for improvement. This collection of snaps from the last couple of months has made me realise that I need to take more pictures of me and Ben!! There aren’t any.
