Heritage

One of my hobbies is scrapbooking. I have been doing photo journaling since 6th grade. Although I do not get to do it as much as I want to because of lack of time and sometimes money, I really wish I could do it everyday. I really really love taking pictures and writing about them.

When I was a lot younger, I had to limit myself from taking photos because films were expensive and having them developed as well. Now that we have digital cameras, there is no limit to taking pictures anymore but then I have more responsibilities that I cannot use a lot of my time for hobbies such as scrapbooking. However, I do take a lot of pictures of my kid of course. There is no excuse for that.

Collecting old photos is one part of  photo journaling also. A few weeks ago, my mom gave me a lot of old pictures of her and my dad's younger days. I scanned them all straight away and shared in Facebook. I love looking at them and imagining life in their generation and how fascinating it is to travel through time and experience everything they have experienced, having kids and grand kids… Old photos just makes me feel that life and the world we live in is simply amazing.


I have a whole shoe box of heritage photos and hope to one day be able to organize them in an album or scrapbook or journal and show them off.
