Rolling back the years

florida 2004

Earlier today i was trying to organize my photo collection and stumbled upon some old photos from 2004. That was the year i got my nokia 6600 which was really my first digital camera (or at least the first camera i used on a day to day basis). Only 640 x 480px so the quality was crap. It also allowed me to take 8 second video clips which sounds ridiculous now, but back then video on a phone wasn’t common. Here’s some old pictures i took with it on a trip to Florida…

Whilst the quality may not be the best, they’re better than nothing and again it proves my point about photos. Capture ’em while you can. In years to come you can look back, like i have done today. 6 years is nothing of course, but look how far technology has come since… rather than shooting 7 seconds of crappy video on a mobile phone, we can now record hours of HD quality footage on a phone. And we can edit it on the phone & upload it to the web too. 6 years ago none of that was possible… in another 6 years time, no doubt we’ll be laughing at today’s technology. Photos, however, are timeless. Same with video.
