Dear Photograph

I work for an amazing company. I love my job and love that I have some small part in making everyday things seem a little less ordinary. There are so many (SO MANY) veins to the company I work for when I think of what we do I see this labyrinth of threads of every color (mostly orange) making an enormous mess on an empty backdrop. And then when you step back you see the most fascinating image taking shape. It's breathtaking. Is that a stretch? How many people do you know that can say they love their jobs? I can say it without hesitation. It feels hopeful.

This post has quite possibly nothing to do with the company I work for, nor my job. You see, I'm an Experiential Marketing Specialist. Most people don't even know what that means. But I love it. What this post does have everything to do with is a Web site that was shared on the Jack Morton FaceBook page today.

There is this baby's-bum-soft spot in my bruised & broken heart for tired, wrinkly, discolored photographs. Aren't they the most lovely creations you have ever laid your baby blues on! Well, Dear Photograph is just someones idea. But what an idea it is. Makes me want to jump on a plane, make a connection onto a much, much smaller plane, arrive in a teeny tiny airport, rent a car, drive an hour or so and take a picture of a picture in all those special places!

I think those pictures-of-pictures are the new best reason to actually make prints of your digital files. How are they supposed to fade and curl slightly and look fantastic otherwise?

When I get home I'm definitely going to dig out the photo album and go do this. LOVE.
