This year my wife Penny wanted to give her Dad a small album of images of our kids. Like all craftsmen, I am great at printing photos for others and not so good at printing out the hundreds I take of my own family. So desperate my wife became to actually see some of the photos we have taken in the past 3 years of our boys’ lives that we bought a little picture mate so she could print out our happy snaps herself – rather than waiting for me or just trawling through hundreds of images on my laptop.
It constantly amazes me how quickly advances in technology happen that we can now, from the comfort of our own home, print out photographs ourselves. While the quality is nothing like a professionally worked and printed image, it sure is fun to see the wonder on my boys’ faces when a photo of themselves comes out of the printer.
