Although we still have a few months to go, 2013 is ALMOST coming down to a close. Sigh! Another year gone by. There is still plenty to look forward to 🙂 Come October we will be having some spanish friends visiting the Bay Area for the first time and we are EXCITED!! Since there are still a few events coming up, and of course many more photos before the year ends, it was time for me to organize my photo folders and make room for more. Do you have a system to organize and somehow print some of your own photos every year or every so often? This year I wanted to make sure I didn’t OVER shoot, which would make me end up with way too many photos to keep track of in the end. I’ve been trying to be more mindful of what I photograph (even with my iPhone) so that not only do I enjoy the moment, but so that I can actually PRINT some of my favorites! When I take a photo and ask my self if I would print it later, it actually helps me to shoot wisely 🙂
Now, the first time I started organizing, it did take me a few days (especially because I just sat down to look back at them!) but once I was done I felt VERY accomplished. I mean really! It’s our life in photos!! Starting from the 70’s (well, at least mine were!) and all the way down to the present. This system has worked for me just fine. I find that if I don’t DO something with the photos I take, it will be chaos in my phone. Besides, having all those photos trapped in my phone or in my computer makes it much more difficult to share them with others.
