#ygkChallenge: Print Your Memories

ygkchallenge, print photos, Kingston, OntarioThe #ygkChallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.

This week’s #ygkChallenge encourages you to:

Print your pictures. Remember when you would come home from the store with a brand new envelope full of photos that you hadn’t seen yet?  The excitement of revisiting the events contained within?  As you peruse the photos, you choose a select few to put on the fridge or maybe even frame.  This whole scenario is a distant memory for many of us and almost completely unheard of to anyone born this century.  Today, we go on vacation, to a birthday party or to the park with our kids and take a million pictures.  But where do they end up?  We post a few gems on Facebook and Instagram where they can collect likes from our friends until they get rotated out of the newsfeed.  Then what?  Many of us have loads of old photos we never look at.  This week, we challenge you to take the time to revisit your old photos and print the ones that mean the most to you.  Too many photos to choose from?  There are many websites that allow you to create reasonably priced, physical photo albums.  So, take some time this week and have fun on your trip down memory lane.

Join us in completing this week’s #ygkchallenge by liking it on Facebook and/or re-Tweeting it on Twitter. By liking and sharing, you’re not only committing to doing something great, but you’re also helping us spread the word and hopefully encouraging others to participate.
