My latest project comes in the form of a box. Well, boxes to be exact. I remember these boxes from growing up; it's where freshly developed photos went after having been looked at once. Occasionally a photo made it to an album... which also lived in the same box. It never made much sense to me then, and now as I'm going through them it makes even less sense. But I can understand why this came to be. You shoot your roll of 24 exposures, then get them developed. At this point you need to catalog them, label them with the date, place, and who is in them. Then, the good ones get put in an album where you caption them. As I look at the albums I can see my parents were pretty good about it for the first couple years. Then, when my younger sister came along I was either sharing the camera lime-light with her, or there weren't that many "good" shots of me. The album is pretty good though until the age of 12, where it ends. I assure you though, there are plenty of photos …
