Some good points here, but one quibble — I tend to make ‘screen saver’ links and lists to images I want to display and share. Digital devices are everywhere now so my favourite shots are now on my thermostat, kitchen Apple TV, computer backgrounds, Tablet backgrounds, etc.
The sad part is that few of these photographs will survive beyond a year. To many people, a “picture” is only good for the moment. Moms and Dads want to snap every little movement of that new baby. Grandma wants to see everyone one of those too. When you want to show off the new puppy, you pull out the phone. And in a week, none of them have any real meaning and might even get “deleted” just to make room for more pictures that have little meaning as well inside of a couple of weeks.So what will become of all the pictures that are being taken today? Here is the reason that 99% of the photographs being taken today are soon going to be totally gone – digital images are no longer important enough to most people to actually keep them in printed form!
