    It sure is different with the digital age. I have lots of old photos – now fading away – in lots of photo albums. I like digital because you have so much more control. I used to take some really awful photos with the analog camera and as you say, you never know what it will look like until printed. #MMBC

    Ahh! It is so easier to take photos now. I remember the old type of cameras where you had to get the photos developed.
    I keep meaning to make photo books of our special moments like Christmas and birthdays. They are such a great idea x #MMBC

    I love this post! I remember the days of film – and bad photos – like it was yesterday. And I also remember getting my first digi camera and thinking it strange to be holding a camera away from my eye 😉 I still carry a camera around with me though. I still prefer it to my phone and think the photos are better quality.
    You have some lovely holiday snaps there.
    Thanks for all your comments on my blog!

      My older kids hate their younger photos, I recently threatened to put some up in frames but they wouldn’t have it. It stopped them moaning about me having framed photos of my younger kids around though. I don’t mind my old photos, the first one in this post is of me 🙂

    I too remember the old days of roll of film with c.24 or 36 exp on them! And I LOVED getting the developed prints from the lab, putting the photos into albums, perhaps sharing doubles with friends or relatives. Now, I struggle to keep track of all the digital pictures… I really need to make a photo book (or 10! ?) xx #MMBC

    Oh the anticipation when you opened the photo wallet. I remember too well. Also remember the ever so helpful oval stickers they used to put on the print, if the photo was overexposed? I keep meaning to make a photobook. A nice way for everyone in the family to remember the holidays. #MMBC

      oh yes, I remember those stickers too. I also remember being reduced to tears in the chemist when I was told that none of the photos of my little girls 2nd birthday had been developed because the film was damaged.

    I am a photo mad mum and my kids all get so fed up with me as I’m always snapping them! I changed from iPhone to google pixel as there are no storage limits to the photos you take! I have recently started making photo books as I use to scrapbook but just do not have the time or space for all of the supplies so photo books are the next best thing #BloggersBest

    I remember those early print days too, there are so few pictures of me as a child and the few that are are grainy. Still fun to look back on. Half the time I just use my phone now, the camera on the phone is my main consideration when buying a new one. #BloggersBest

    I love this post Anne and what lovely photos. This was such a lovely trip down memory lane. I also remember the excitement of getting our photos back and seeing how they turned out! We have so many photos I really should look into these photobooks, they seem such a fab idea and great to share with others too.

    Thanks so much for sharing with #MMBC. Have a lovely weekend. x

    This post has come at the perfect time, thanks! We were just chatting last night about putting our holiday pics into a book. I’ll definitely look into this, the hard part will be deciding which ones to leave out, as you say, nowadays it’s easy to take way too many. #mixitup
