Ok, nobody’s looking at the camera—not even the dog! And my geraniums are looking more than a little dead in the late summer heat. Luckily, I got a slightly better version (puppy still not looking at the camera—do they teach that at obedience school?) that the kids could print out and take to school to show off the camera-shy puppy. Let’s face it: this isn’t a photo I’m likely to post to Face Book, or to text to friends and family. In the interest of more cloud space, I should probably delete it. But what if I didn’t have a choice? What if a flash flood, or more likely, dropping my phone in the bathtub wiped it away, along with the good version? To make sure I have my bad pictures for all eternity, or at least until I send them to Awkward Family Photos, I’m going to pay attention to the experts at Save Your Photos Day. It’s free and part of a nationwide day to help folks preserve the photos that tell the stories of their lives. Inspired by the devastation of Hurricane Sandy and Midwestern Tornadoes, the caring experts of the Save Your Photos Alliance will help you preserve what you have and plan for a future full of selfies.
