What’s Your Favorite Photograph?


“One time, this guy handed me a picture of him, he said “Here’s a picture of me when I was younger.” … Every picture is of you when you were younger.” – Mitch Hedberg

Take a moment today to be thankful for the photographs that have helped keep your memories close…

And although keeping your photos on your phone (or the cloud) may be a convenient way to keep them, consider printing them out and putting them in an album (old-school style) or get a photobook printed. There’s something so wonderfully nostalgic about flipping through pages of photos, laughing, sharing, and reminiscing.

There are so many awesome options out there, ranging from the basic Snapfish or Shutterfly or SnapBox ones, to the heirloom-quality ones printed by companies like Artifact Uprising and Picaboo. Keep them, or give them to family and friends as gifts.


What’s your favorite photograph and why? Who took it? How does it make you feel?

  1. That is a nice way to jog the memory. One of my nostalgia-ridden photographs is of my mother and I in Oman – where we lived for the first 8 years of my life. There are few photographs in which we are affectionate because we do fight a lot. Now, the annoying thing is that somehow it was left in a book with a college friend. She told me about it a long time ago and despite constantly asking her to send it back, I never did lay my hands on it again.

    1. Thank you for sharing this story with us. It’s frustrating to lose things that are of such great importance to us. But you have the memory of the photo, and the stories associated with it. Write them down so they can live on forever. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I love the idea of printing out photos and making an album in this digital age 🙂 my favorite photo is one that I have of me and my grandfather when I was 3yo!

  3. My favorite photo is from our wedding. It is prom style with him holding my waist as he is standing behind me. It’s just the perfect picture and brings me back to a perfect day.
