Memories. They are the most precious thing that we have.
One way that we remember our memories is through photographs. Now that we are in the digital age, photographs can be taken by their hundreds, edited to enhance the clarity and be uploaded to the world.
When I was growing up, photographs were taken with film. Something about having something physical to hold and put in a photo frame means so much more than looking at a photograph on a screen.
One of the best Christmas presents I ever received was a photograph album of me, my dad and my mum from the first seven years of my life, before we lost my dad. It is precious to me beyond words.
I thought that I would share some of those photographs here today.
Whilst I have shared some of best kept photographs I have here, unfortunately, these photographs taken decades ago can degrade and fade; as have many in my photo album of memories. With this in mind, one of my ideas for a Christmas present for my mum (who isn't too internet savvy as and such, only sees the posts I show her) is to restore and blow up some of my photographs. I want both a restored original and also a digital copy so that these photographs will last a lifetime.
I decided to contact and hire local professionals in order to make my idea a reality and I decided to use the internet to find the best professional in my area and received several quotes back within a few days.
I cannot wait to get my photos back and give my mum a surprise that I know that she will love. On a side note, just how beautiful is my mum!!
