I´m ambivalent about the video I embedded downwards. It´s by TheFineBros – the operators of a YouTube channel, where videos are being uploaded Sundays, which document the reactions of teenagers and kids to different things. On the one hand I´m a little pleased that the kids from today have so much difficulty with an anolog camera. After all, we pre-digital-age-born had to go through this as well. On the other hand some scenes strike me as more than just sad, for example as the adults explain what a photo album “was” and why there are “photo albums” on PCs, Smartphones and online platforms nowadays. The kids´ perplex expressions encouraged me to think about when I have last printed a photo und had a look at my old photo albums. It´s been a lifetime ago.
I find it interesting, that when the Kids are asked about what they prefer to take phots with, one boy gives reasons for his choice of the analog camera. If these are really his thoughts, it´s remarkable.
When have you printed a photo the last time, or had a look at your old photo albums?
