How many photo albums do you have at home?

I am so into photos. I photographed almost all the events in my life. Since when I was still a grader , I already collect pictures by grade and always had remembrance photos every year until I graduate in college, got married, and have a kid. So can you imagine now how many albums do I have at home? They can even suffice to make a divider somewhere in a house. Actually I have 32 photo albums to be exact. I am still continuing collecting pictures but I am embracing the new trend now. I have the new pics in my virtual album and have them viewed in my PC or in the tv by means of using the flashdiscs. whew. Until I continue to live, I won’t get tired of doing so-that is-collecting photos.

That is a whole lot of pictures, but I bet you love every memory you have captured. I myself have 5 huge ones that are filled up, and a ton of loose pictures waiting to find their place. Taking pictures can be rather addicting if you ask me. I always want to be able to remember everything, so you hardly ever find me without my camera. I am certain my daughter will appreciate it as well when she gets older.

it's cool that someone like you really appreciate photos, because photographs are immortal meaning it has sentimental value to anybody especially yourself, memories, events and the like are recorded and like you I also have some photos since childhood, during my early schoolyears up to the present, you're asking how many albums do I have? well I have 12 albums, and I am planning to scan my old photographs and have them edited to be stored in discs, I appreciate beauty around me like the environment so I am into digital photography I'm trying to learn the ropes by now.

I have about three photo albums at my home. Most of them contain my own photos, animals and my colleges.

We have many photo albums in our house. Memories of from childhood, photos from every occasion. Birthdays, Christmas, New Years, fiestas, everything. I also have a separate photo albums of my friends in high school. But lately, since technology was there, I continued collecting pictures in my photo album in Facebook and Friendster. I just print selected ones. I also keep a USB where I save those ready to print pictures. But I think still collecting printed photos and keeping an album is still the best. You can make a scrap book to decorate them. When you have your visitors or relative that you didn't see for along time, you can share them your stories from those photos. Just keep it nicely. have a nice day!!

I have a small photo album from the time that I lived in the north of Denmark. It was a very happy time for me and I like to look at the pictures of my friends and and the house where I lived, because it reminds me of the happy time that I spent there. I also have 5 big photo albums. 4 of them are full of photos from abroad. I have travelled around in Europe as a tourist and I have lived in other countries, and I have pictures from most of the places that I have visited. The last photo album contains some photos of my parents, my brother, my grandmothers and other members of my family.

I LOVE to take pictures. About 3 years ago my husband bought me a digital camera. It was the best gift ever. I take it everywhere....yes even just to the store...You never know when a good photo opportunity will pop up. LOL!! I have two boys and I take tons and tons of pics of them doing everything from sleeping, holidays, to riding wheelers and fishing. I have all my pics on cds. I have around 6,000 pictures from the last three years! WOW! I need to go to pictureaholics annonomyouse!!!! LOL!!! ~May The Kisses Of An Angel Cover And Protect You Always!~ Copper

I just have the one photo album, I keep most of my pictures on the computer now, transferring them from my digital camera, although I don't tend to take that many photos. The photo album I have is of me from a baby right up to my thirties, taken on holiday and how I've changed, from school pictures, to college pictures, on holidays and with friends. When I am feeling unhappy looking at the album cheers me up, but it also makes me feel kind of sad for the past. I do find collecting too many albums you have to find somewhere to store them and when you move you have to carry them around with you.

My personal ones (those that I started myself) , I'd say I have 4 now. I just both my DSLR camera about two years ago and I would make an album of every major vacation I will have. Sometimes I would end up shooting more than 2000 images of the vacation but because printing is expensive, I have to cut it down to the best 500. Worst is, I have to find a good album that can store all those :) Virtual albums are good too but I've been working on computers for so long that I would not trust my precious memories on it so much. Tangible items are still the best to hold memories onto

Photography is one of my hobbies. On the top shelf of my book case I have about 30 travel photo albums. They have photos of all my trips to different countries. I have a drawer filled with around 10 ordinary photo albums. I have a digital camera and seven memory cards. All of the memory card have photos of them. I have about 20 CD Roms with photos on them.

I only have 2 or 3 photo albums.In my computer,there are less than 500 pictures. I like take photograph,but there are many reasons to make my little pictures. Like,when I was young,my parents rarely take pictures for me,so I have only 2,3 photo albums. Now I don't own a digital camera,so I also rarely take pictures.And,I think now my pictures never look better,sometimes I don't want to take pictures. You have so many pictures,I envy you,haha~~~

I have 100,000 photos in my room,I never share my photo with anyone.The photos make my room too small,I plan to burn them.I should forget the past and face the future,so make this decide.

I have a lot too! I love collecting pictures of myself, my family and my friends. I keep a lot on my hard drive but seeing them in photo paper nicely organizd in a photo album makes the moment more alive. So I would pick out the best photos and print and keep them in albums. Every now and them I browse through them and reminisce.

I actually don't know how many photo albums we have at home. There's quite a bit though. My dad loved taking pictures so there's a bunch of when my siblings and I were younger. He hasn't taken as many during the last few years but there is still a good number. Now, my sister also helps to contribute to the photo count.
