Having a little break and staying with family gave me a chance to search through some old photographs. Luckily, my mum is a not-so-secret hoarder and has kept almost every picture of my siblings and me.
It was fun looking back over some retro picts and really trying to work out who Miss Marnie looks most like (still up for debate!).
But, it made me really, really sad that all these great vintage polaroid, Land Camera and passport picts just sit in a dusty shoebox in the back of a cupboard (almost as sad as never printing out picts that just linger on Facebook and Instagram now I guess…)
This year I’ve vowed to get them all scanned in via the brilliant Vintage Photo Lab – you literally post a shoebox of picts and they scan them to DVD – then I plan to make some photo books, gifts and enlargements up for family members.
I may also stick some in Miss Marnie’s baby book for her to look at in years to come.
** On the subject of vintage picts we are loving the Pocketbooth app at the moment…
