My Cherished Item #CB16 - Old photos

Participating in the Cherished Blogfest #CB16.

What do I cherish most? Not a difficult question to answer 🤔

I love books and travel more than anything else in this world. My blog is obviously a reflection of the same. There is one more thing that i love. Photography and capturing wonderful moments of my life ☺

My cherished item is my album. You don't beleive but I have my old photo albums from my childhood still preserved safe in the shelves. They are very close to my heart. Whenever I feel lonely or deprssed or lack any motivation, I just take my album out and turn the pages, remembering the old times, re-living those happy moments until I feel positive again. These albums from different stages of my life always bring smile on my face on any day.

I have photo albums covering different stages of my life till marriage. Later, I have moved to digital copies. Google Picassa has become my best friend to save my happy moments from then. Now, I back up all my smart phone pics to Google photos which has enhanced storage and sharing options.

What is your most cherished item? Do you also retain copies of your old photos in albums still? Or did you move to online storage?
Do let me know in comments.

Until next time,

Ahh photo albums are dear to me too, and I miss them greatly. I only have printed photos till 2nd standard, the rest are hidden somewhere deep in the computer hard disk. Digitalised photos are too many and it's value has decreased. My own cherished object is my Diary, wrote about it for #CBF16 :)

Will hop onto your blog soon. I too love my diary, but couldn't maintain for long time.

I take a lot of picture, and I store a lot of them online. What I did recently though is treat myself to a Canon Selphy printer so that I can print quality pictures that won't fade at home.

I use a lot of these pictures I print to decorate my home or use in my creative journals.

Hi,Mahathi - We have both written about the same cherished object for the Cherished Blogfest. I also have old photo albums preserved from my childhood, as well as photo albums from my grandparents. I agree with you that old photos can quickly brighten our mood and take us to places that we can no longer physically access. Great post!

Same as you, I have many photo albums from childhood and adult years, along with photos from my parents' past. They are all precious to me and make me smile whenever I look at them...especially those that make me wonder, "What was I wearing? Yikes!" I'm glad that you have preserved your photos and keep them safe on a shelf.

Thanks for participating in the Cherished Blogfest! I hope you'll do this again next year.

We have many photo albums as well as tons of digital photos. lately, we've been printing some of the digital photos and creating new albums. There's something special about reliving memories through a photo album.

Thanks for joining us and for sharing your love of these photos with us.

I also love photos but I don't have as many albums. Now I save digital copies and sometimes print them.

I agree that pictures from the past bring such fond memories. Good one there.

Paul said...

I have a lot of digital photos now, but I still prefer conventional pics in albums. There's something about leafing through albums and reliving old memories. Good post!

I have a box filled with old photos that are too many to fit into our picture albums but I would never get rid of them. That is how much a Cherish the memories they contain. Nice post

Photo albums are indeed precious. In an episode of Grey's Anatomy, Meredith said: In a fire you grab your kids, your keys and your family albums. Photos can hold so many memories. Thanks for sharing.

Simon Falk said...

Lovely. Old photos can give us surprises. We all have pictures we love.

with the advent of digital storage albums have become passe. But honestly nothing beats the albums. The joy it gives is unmatched
