So there has to be a balance somewhere. I really believe that family history and records are made up of photos, and I'm so glad my Mum took so many when we were kids and growing up. A family's past lies in its photos and artefacts and stories and communal memory. But there has to be a point where you think "I don't need a photo of this." I think I've been taking more photos since I've been using LiveJournal and 43things. It feels like an entry isn't complete without an illustration. But what do you all think? Do
you find yourself taking too many photos? Do your families mind when you snap away at things? Do you ever catch yourself taking a photo and thinking "Stop, this is ridiculous, I don't need to record this"?
