Don’t be afraid of photo repetition.
I know I’m not the only one with this affliction… taking far… too… many digital photos. Put you’re hand up if you have this problem too!
In many cases, I just find myself having to spend some time choosing the best ones and deleting the surplus. I used to get really anxious hitting the ‘bin’ button, just in case I’d made an error. But, yes you can delete digital photos, it really isn’t too painful once you get used to it.
On the other hand, you can sometimes use the series of photos you’ve taken to your advantage when you make your page layout. Ulrike has used the photo sequence of the cake to tell a story, without having to actually write the words (I especially like the last photo on the right hand side!).
You should still add journalling too, but by running the photo series you can avoid having to describe the actual event and concentrate more on intangible things like feelings and thoughts.
