Making a Lego Photobook

Moments are fleeting, blink or not pay attention, and the moment becomes a memory. One reason why we take photos, is to try and keep hold of those memories, as clearly as possible. While I love digital photography, as much as the next iPhone photo addict, the nature of digital photography can also become fleeting.

The nature of digital also means it can be intangible. Just like how services like Netflix and Amazon Prime are becoming the new way of watching videos, it feels that looking at a screen is the way of viewing photos.

All our photos become part of one folder, a library of our own creation. Yet not to be held, passed to another, or shown as something other.

Photobooks really are the old style photo albums, which have been dragged into this century. And by that, I mean. They look good.

Or at least they can look good.

The photos show a photo book from Saal-Digital. You have a number of options to customize your book how you like, so my number one advice while ordering… TAKE YOUR TIME!

Take your time to work out not only what photos you’d like included, but the layout of the photos, any text you’d like to include, the style of the paper, style of the covers… what style you’d like the covers to be – THE LIST GOES ON.

In short, lots of options, good quality results, and better customer service then a lot of others out there.

But one final note about the photo book, I’ve featured. Our little one could pick out which Lego minifigure she was in the photos – no problems.

Now excuse me. I’m going to go and take some more pictures of small people in the big world out there.

(I was given a voucher from Saal Digital towards the cost of the above – but opinions expressed above are mine – ALL MINE!)

#MySundayPhoto -Exploring Killerton

The other day, we finally decided to take the leap.

With National Trust – Killerton just down the road, we figured it was about time.

We finally signed up to National Trust membership, and explored Killerton on Sunday evening .

I had forgotten how beautiful that area is, and its just down the road.

#MySundayPhoto – A Winters Walk

We’ve managed to have a rare event this Christmas, as between the two of us we’ve been able to get a good amount of time off AT THE SAME TIME AS EACH OTHER between Christmas and New Years… Other wise known as Limbo time.

This was taken at the start of a walk along the Canal towards the Double Locks pub here in Exeter.

If you’ve had the last few days off, I hope you’ve had a good and relaxing time. If you’ve been at work, I hope you know you are awesome.

#MySundayPhoto – Peace On The Water

The hunt for Geocaches the other day, led us to The Goat Walk in Topsham, Devon; where the stillness of the Exe Estuary, led the Small One to want to encourage me to throw pebbles into the still water.

I naturally obliged.

The two of us hanging out there, was one of those times where you are mentally dragged away from the pressures of work, that to do list of things of things to do at home disappears, and the existence of anything that drags you away from the moment is forgotten.

It’s arguably a little bit of heaven.

Thanks to the small one, wanting to make ripples in the stillness.

#MySundayPhoto – The Crawl To Work

Question.
Is this a photo of a beautiful sunrise, or is it a comment on congestion into Exeter during rush hour?

Or is it both?

Either way, if any public transport providers would like to use this in their advertising, please feel free to drop me a line on Twitter.

#MySundayPhoto – The View From The Tea on The Green, Exeter

Had a chance to try out The Tea on The Tea on The Green (on The Exeter Cathedral Green) earlier this afternoon.

There seems to be loads of options for Gluten Free eating, I can recommend the pasty – and the chips I stole from the Little One tasted amazing.
