#SnapGladstone: Your pics
THANKS to the rise of digital technology, this is the most recorded generation in history.
But as our lives revolve more around the digital sphere, we fall into the trap of having poorly kept tangible, physical records.
Storing photos used to be done on CDs. Chances are, you have three or four USB ports instead of a CD drive now but will USBs be around in five years’ time?
With less people printing photos and more relying on technology, do we risk losing everything when our iPhones or computers die?
Printing photos gives you something to pass from generation to generation.
To celebrate Gladstoneand let others know what we have to offer - The Observer launched #SnapGladstone a social media initiative to promote what we all love about living here.
Take a look at the photos our readers shared with us this week and here’s a list of cool things you can do with printed photos.
Keep them in a shoe box in your cupboard or pop them in a photo box.
2. Photo albums
It doesn’t matter how old or young you may be, photo albums will always be a part of family living.
3. Photo Books
If you’re keen to give a gift from the heart, photo books are the way to go.
Rather than just sticking to your typical printed picture in a frame, why not try something different with a collage.
Instead of artists you’ve never even met, put your own personal stamp on the house instead!
Like photo books, but even more crafty!
This Christmas, the list of photo gifts endless. Calendars, puzzles, mugs, key chains, clothes, blankets, posters, frames, and more.
