My husband and I had a fantastic few days away exploring the central coast. It was absolutely gorgeous. One evening I was sitting on a bench by the sea while my husband was taking photos of the sunset. I was uploading iPhone photos to my flickr account while I sat there. It is my custom that I take iPhone photos as well as photos with my DSLR camera. Uploading the photos did not detract from my relaxation at all or take away from the beauty of my surroundings. When my photos were done uploading, I read a few blogs and facebook updates and noticed a lot of people talking about social media sites being a waste of their time. It's funny because in that moment on the bench by the beautiful sea, I as so thankful for online sites where I can share photos with my friends and family and keep track of my memories. I knew in that moment that when I got home I would not have time to edit my 1500 photos, and it's true, I do not. I desperately want to, but I can't right now. If I had not had access to flickr, twitter, or facebook, my memories might be stuck on an SD card in a drawer. I love the ease of posting photos as I go, in the moment. I do it more for myself and my menopause related dementia than anything else. If you don't post your stuff when it happens, how can you remember or have time for it later? It's a time saver!
