But I'm sure for some, these photos become a burden. It's easy to snap them, but it can be daunting to edit out blurry images and to organize thousands of photos. Unless you enjoy it, few are printed.
I'm sure the number of pictures I take per month will decrease almost exponentially as my son grows up. Few teenagers enjoy smiling for the camera on holidays let alone on a random Tuesday night.
So although it may not be possible to continue the tradition for the long haul, we are having a great time sending distant relatives a photo a week. It is a nice opportunity for me to look through a week's worth of photos- much less daunting than a couple of years worth- edit them, choose favorites to print, and reminisce.
At the end of the year, we ended up with a wonderful collection of 52 photos (which some of my relatives have printed off and put together into their own treasured album).
How do you handle the abundance of digital photos on your camera/phone? Do you ever print or organize them?
