Heritage Village is a cool place to step back in time and see how our ancestors lived. It is a 21-acre open-air living history museum located in the heart of Pinellas County. The natural pine and palmetto landscape is home to some of Pinellas County’s most historic buildings.
More than 31 historic structures and features, some dating back to the 19th century, include a school, church, sponge warehouse, firehouse, railroad depot and store, as well as a variety of historic homes.
It is estimated that 1.2 trillion photos will be taken in 2017. Think of all the photos you have on your phone, hard drive, external drives, thumb drives, CD and in the cloud. It can add up to thousands of photos that we have accumulated over time. What are you going to do with them? I am guilty of procrastinating in organizing and cataloguing so I can find them later and then become frustrated when I look for a photo and can’t find it. So, I have determined this year to better organize my photos as I take them. Below is an interesting article from Mylio.
Books & Photos
I recently stopped by a local bookstore to look for vintage photography books. I could have easily stayed home and browsed a Kindle, Nook, or some other type of electronic reader but I like a real book. To me, there is something about the look and feel of holding a real book. I often underline and write notes in the margins, something I find difficult in an electronic book.
Photography can be like that, most of our photos are in electronic bits of information that we view on a computer or smart device. I find it rewarding to pull a photo album or book off the shelf and relive the memory.
