A Photobook of our San Francisco Trip

101 in 1001 #3. Make a photo book of our San Fran trip || Completed June 2018

Alright. This one... is kind of embarrassing.  Why? Because we went on this trip in.... 2015. Ha! 3 years ago! But I really wanted this trip documented somehow, so I'm glad I stuck with this goal. 

I used Chatbooks again, and while I'm happy with the quality of this book, one thing I noticed was that it really does make a difference what kind of camera you use. Since this was three years ago, I had a much older phone, and even between then and now what I currently have is a huge improvement! I also just purchased a DSLR camera, and this is making me all the more excited to start learning how to use it.

Still, I'm happy to have these pictures printed out, because I'm pretty sure I never would've looked at them otherwise!

Another thing making me kick myself for not doing this sooner, is that since it was so long ago I don't really remember a ton of specifics about this trip. The pictures are a nice memory, but I don't remember thoughts about each place we visited necessarily. Yet another reason to do this sooner after it actually happens. Since I couldn't remember much, I just did one page at the beginning of the book with my thoughts on the trip as a whole, and then just did pictures with no captions throughout. I wish I remembered more, but this will have to do!

Basically, this project taught me a lot of things to keep in mind for next time. :)

All in all, I'm pleased with how it turned out. Complaints aside, I think this will be a good keepsake. It was really easy to put together, very cost-effective, and shipped to my house really quickly! I really like Chatbooks and will continue to use them in the future. 

I'm so glad I have it.  

Happy Wednesday!
