When is the last time you looked at your phones photo library? How many pictures are on your phone? Are you an avid picture taker or a novice? How many meme’s vs screenshots vs ACTUAL pictures do you see? I tend to download fun images for my Instagram page for this blog and later delete them to keep things tidy on my phone, ( it’s an ODC thing, don’t judge me).
As I was going through my pictures on my phone, cleaning things up from all the thousands of documented events, I began shaking my head thinking back to the day when I had my first digital camera which was a Minolta DiMage 5 ( I think, doesn’t matter,) it was the coolest thing back 1998 . But all the work that went into retrieving the photos taken with it required a process. Instant gratification was still about 6 steps away vs weeks. I went from taking pictures with an old SLR, dropping the film case in a envelope at Wal-Mart and sending it off to patiently wait a week for it to be returned to see how well my skills were. Back in 2010, I recall finding an old roll of film in one of our moves and not knowing what was on it and how HARD it was to find a place that would process the roll for me and when I did, the wait time was insanely long.
NOW, I just spent a morning cleaning out all the photos on my phone and in doing so thought to myself, anyone who would go through the photos on my phone, would learn fairly quickly that I am two things:
1. A lush…
2. A lush that loves a good martini because I have a ton of pictures of them!
All that said, I thought it would be a fun post to share some of the ones I captured over the last few years.
