First it was my husband's passion to take photographs no matter where we were invited. Starting with he owned a Yashika D - black and white followed by several others until the digital world took over. Whenever guests arrived while we were busy getting meals ready they would spend time in the lounge browsing through photo albums with a running commentary and that is history now They now watch tv!1 No one is interested in looking at photos as unlike in the olden days one can take countless photos using their smart phones and also with a digital camera. The question what will I do with those albums both hard and those stored in digital folders. Any suggestions?

@allknowing I love old photos but my kids don’t seem to have to much of an interest. When they were younger they enjoyed looking through them sometimes. I made my daughter an album for her party full of photos of her when she was little and of other people with her for them to sign in the album at her graduation party. I forgot to put out a pen until toward the end of the party and no one bothered to tell me although they did mention it after I said something

You know, I'm almost 70, so no digital photo of my grandparents, most of family, most gone. I treasure the pictures we have though. My Mother made slide ones too. Photos are a snapshot of a time, never be to return. My Mother is gone, now 5 years, so these photos at my treasure that I look at time to time. The next generations to come, will treasure them too. My family wasn't one to record when it was for photos. Before we my Mom left me,very had fun she remembering about them, and I writing it down on the photo. I just have my photos in albums, it in a box with slide viewer. I've no children, but if I did, I'd leave them these snapshots in time of family with a note...this is your family.

When you have abundance, you loose interest and value. I remember how special family photo day used to be when a photographer from some good studio. And for other days, we would judiciously use the roll and then take it to the photo studio to develop photos. We would wait for the surprise.

Many of people in and outside of my family love looking at pictures both hard copies and digital copies. I have an Amazon Prime account which I can have my pictures via my phone on the tv. Take pictures of the the photographs with you phone and have your pictures backed up by the Amazon Photo's and they will go on to the channel on the tv.
You are fortunate that you still have people around who would want to see your photos. It used to be that way a long time ago but with smart phone and countless pictures doing the rounds that is history here. I will not throw away my albums any way
Hi, just a suggestion Maybe you need to find a digital platform as a place to store and protect it from damage. And, you can also earn money if you want, instead of just being left alone. Because, maybe we'll need it someday, who knows?
