Hi Tali,

> This is called the photo taking impairment effect, where my camera functions as a dropbox for my brain.

So true. The reminiscence of my single childhood photo are so much richer than the hundreds of photos I took of my kids learning how to bike. I recently did a PhotoBook project for a client to detail a personal journey from Chile to San Francisco with selected photos of the journey. A videoBook (essentially photoBook plus music) was created as part of it. With the right music it conveys much deeper emotion … minimize the impairment of mere photos.

Here’s the video on youtube: https://youtu.be/h8TM8TxJ0cU

Love to hear your thoughts.
