But Daaaaaad! – Wordless Wednesday

WW--Father's-Day-Collage-Edit[7]

They taught us how to throw a ball, and how to throw a punch. Whenever we got into trouble, we always made sure to listen. While they don’t always say much in the way of sentiment, deep down we know it’s their actions that speak volumes on how much they love us.

Happy Father’s Day!

How did you celebrate Father’s Day with your Dad this year?


A Place to Call Home – Wordless Wednesday

061114-WW---A-Place-to-Call-Home

Moving can be cumbersome, but once the pieces start falling into place routines begin to feel familiar again. Our Receiving crew got the ball rolling, and had the honors of processing the first batch of memories at our new address. While settling into our new memory factory still takes some getting used to, the flow of memories coming through our offices makes us feel right at home.

To everyone at YesVideo – welcome home!

This week we are featuring a photo from Ever After… My Way.  Some of our favorite childhood memories involve our favorite stories.

Instant Memories – Throwback Thursday

Instant Memories

Have you ever owned an Instant Camera?  Do you remember when you felt instant gratification after snapping a photo, pulling the film out of the bottom of the camera, waving it around in the air while all your friends or family members stood around watching impatiently while the film slowly turned from white to display the image you captured?  I remember getting excited as soon as I would see the outline of the face I photographed.  Of course then there were many times when the disappointment would set in after realizing one person had their eyes closed and we had to start all over again, only wasting that piece of film.

When I was a kid I had a Polaroid camera and I thought it was the coolest thing in the world.  If my friend wanted a copy of the photos we were taking we had to duplicate each shot.  Double the fun… that is until you ran out of film.  I remember going through phases of wanting to capture all these memories with instant printing yet I never wanted to use all my film.  It was an inner struggle between using the camera and saving it.  I always wanted my last photo to be my best!

While helping my parents clean out my grandmother’s home when she passed away I found this Kodak Instant Camera.  Surprisingly there was still film inside.  Unfortunately when I took a photo the film came out overexposed and never developed correctly.  I guess my grandma was saving some film in hopes to capture another great memory.  I can only imagine what all was viewed through the lens of this vintage camera.

Today our instant gratification comes from digital images.  We often times take hundreds of photos at any given event or family outing.  When we start running low on space on our memory card we simply delete some we don’t like and continue snapping away.  Instead of taking a second photo to share with friends – we upload to Instagram.

Did you have an Instant Camera?  Was it a Kodak or Polaroid?  Did you wave your film in the air trying to make it develop quicker or were you patient enough to lay it down and wait?

Dwan can be found sharing her daily captures on Instagram and blogging about it over at MommaDJane.com.
