The Gift of Memory

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PhotoFlashDrive by Pexagon Technology. All opinions are 100% mine.

Ever since I was a child, I have always loved photography.  So much so that my dad bought me an instamatic camera to carry around in our trips. Compared to todays Xbox , Wii and other gadgets, my instamatic was an inexpensive commodity to reward a child with, not to mention it's a skill-builder and a worth-while hobby. The only thing that throws my dad off was the cost of film, the developing and at the time, even the cube flash has to be paid for. Film and developing were not that cheap. I was limited to one film (and its developing) a month! I was happy with the arrangement.

Well, my favorite toy has evolved a lot since then! In the mid 90's, the advent of digital photography  changed photography and photographers alike! It eliminated the cost of  film and has limited the amount of bad shots from being developed. How cool can you get. The best part of which is digital photography allowed photographers to edit their photos. The  con of this matter is the storage! Geez, if we can take limitless number of photos, why wouldn't we? I take photos a lot. I take photos of events and the places we visit. I take photos of my family, friends and even my kindergarten students.

My camera  allows me to document  things easier . At the end of every school year,  I see to it that I give the parents' of my students a copy of the photos and videos of the things that we did in school and places our class has visited. I use to put it in a DVD, but it doesn't always fit in one DVD. Thank God for flash drives! Especially those flash drives for photographers  that allow me to have something engraved on it. Personalized items are perfect for gift-giving.

Whether instamatic or digital, I, like many others am grateful for the invention of this gadget that gives us the gift of memory.

me too Tes, I want one of these :) I am glad photography these days is not as expensive as before, thus, we can spend more money on our gadgets now to develop our craft instead of spending most of it on films and where some pictures are even over-exposed :)

As I'm getting ready to move from this home I've rented from 13 years, I've been going through things, throwing a lot away and trying to downsize!! I've got boxes and boxes of photos, what with 88 cruises and dozens of other travels in my 66 years. I started out by eliminating all blurry photos, duplicates that I know my kids will never want, places and people I don't recognize! How wonderful that we're now a digital world.
It's really nice of you to do pictures for your class and their families, Tes!!
