Folks, this is why you don't do impromptu culling of "bad" images from your digital camera while you're in the field... or after you get home! Sometimes it's impossible to realize the value of a photograph until decades later, and that means you have to let them pile up in the digital version of a shoebox until someone can come along later and find them. So tag well (I'm going through this with my grandma right now—who are these people? where is this? and let's capture that information before the context is lost forever) and use features like stacks to eliminate clutter without discarding data forever, but don't delete anything!
Disney World Destiny for Married CoupleAlso, I have to plug StoryCorp while I'm going on about preserving history... what they're doing, it's really important. So go listen. And consider doing-it-yourself with your parents or grandparents or that favorite aunt or uncle, and capture that story you've been hearing since you were a kid, so that it will be around for your kids, and theirs and theirs.
Have you heard of this story? A married couple is going through some old family pictures, when he sees his dad pushing him in a stroller in the background of her family picture taken at Walt Disney World. They didn’t know each other then (he lived in Canada and she in Florida) but fate or destiny drew them together.
I wonder how many other times since Disneyland opened in 1955 that this has happened? Any math wiz’s want to take a shot at the odds?
