Tuesday Thoughts – A Week of Autumn

This week I have been using my iPhone even more than usual to document my days. It’s always with me, it makes me think about limitations and how to get around those problems.

Of course the days of low megapixel camera phones have gone and retro photography is all the rage, adding leaks, deliberately fading and adding lomo effects all add to the fun.

It’s making people take photos again, documenting lives and making memories. I’m all for that, as a historian it warms my heart. But on the other side what worries me is that so many people don’t bother to take their precious images off their phone, they sit there never being printed or saved and one day pouf…. they will be gone when the phone crashes or the phone gets damaged.  Although i’m a disorganised and untidy human being ( my husband will testify to that ) but as far as photo organisation goes I am a fiend. I don’t keep my  photos on my phone for long they are saved to my Lightroom catalogue under year and month, they have their own key words and monthly they are backed up onto an external hard drive. I know I know you are thinking that is overkill but I don’t expect everyone else to be quite so picky as me !

So if you know someone who has a phone and their life is documented on it please help them to take those photos off and save them and think of all those wonderful memories you have saved….
