Me again!

Actually, another post started me thinking about the way I store my pictures when I get home. I'm a big scrap-book fanatic - I like to add in all the odds and ends I've collected (maps, metro tickets, museum stubs, you name it) and write in where I was, what I remember and any odd thing that happened at the time.

Problem is that when I look at the books I made a few years back, the pages and the pictures are starting to curve. I think it's because each page gets very "middle" heavy, creating a big bump in the centre of the book so that the pages end up sagging on the ends.

How do most people keep and display their collections? Maybe I need to invest in some fancy-pants scrapbooks with really thick pages? Any ideas?

Reserve a wall at home and paste everything there.

Hey, tway! Instead of paying big bucks for a fancy pants scrapbook, go to a garage sale! I picked up what I thought was a nice photo album once for a whole 25 cents. I just saw the same photo album in an art store a few weeks ago for $60.

You could also make your own book with a little bit of time. Take some cardboard mounting sheets, have the art store cut them for you, back them with acid-free paper, and slip them into the regular scrapbooking sleeves. Maybe do a few of those and save them just for odds and ends. It would be pretty cheap to do it that way, too.

As far as deleting bad pictures, heck, just get some memory cards on sale and have several at a time. Then you don't have to worry about deleting. In the US, the day after Thanksgiving is a great day to go out and stock up on memory cards.

Make sure you dress up before you take your own picture.
Be presentable.
Always click photographs out in the garden in bright light.
Click photographs from an angle point of view.
Mka esure you get the picture fully that you want.

I think that a picture looks better when taken about 10ft of the ground... Better perspective.. nest time your out and about get high and see what effect it has..
