Preserving the past for future generations

The next generation, would it be anything like ours, or would it be better?
Would they take advantage of the lessons learn in the past or would they just simply ignore them and move on? Destined to repeat the same mistakes we made all over again?
Personally I think young people are more aware and more concerned about things around them, at least more aware than I was! They seem to make it a point to be aware, or to be familiar with the environment around them, quite unlike past generations!
However any attempt to make a change now, in the view of some, may just be a little bit too late!
What do you think?
Is it really too late for any significant change to take effect or for us to make a difference? And yes I know what you are thinking, What does this have to do with image restoration?
Well, even though this may seem a little bit off topic, believe me when I say that it is really all connected, however, you be the judge!
For example, if you just look at preserving our past, my older relatives used to tell me all the stories they could remember, and just that alone, was interesting and an eye opener for me!
I remember they used to have albums and albums of photos, just waiting to show any guest within arm’s length, the family tree.
I remember that you could spend a great amount of time in conversation just by looking at all those photos of years gone by, imagining the smell, the sounds, the laughter, the voices that were all caught up in those images.
Now of course, the images are all gone, and so is the laughter and the sounds, and I have to say, oh, what a pity!
But it may not be too late for the rest of us!
I know for a fact that most people still have albums and albums of photos, just waiting to show their guest the family tree.
However how many of us really know that given time most of those photos, those negatives, those slides, will eventually completely fade away, as a matter of fact, and trust me when I say this, they have already began to do so!
So you see, its not off topic at all!
Change is inevitable, even when it comes to our personal belongings, and if we don’t take the time now to preserve what we have, we stand to lose it all!
My advice, take the time and restore those memories for your friends and relatives, remember the saying, time waits for no one!
You do not have to use us, but Digiart Imaging Group will always be ready and willing, to help with any restoration projects you may have.
Please take a look at a few samples in our gallery.

    I really enjoyed reading this.
    Its true, i can remember visiting my grandmother, ( which i saw only once a year) we always knew that at some point in our visit that we would be sitting all together looking at the photos. Most of the photos were of my father & my uncles & aunt…my brother & I would often laugh at the way they were dressed. Its amazing how much my brother looks like my father when he was younger.
    I can remember one time my grandmother brought out the photos of her childhood. It was very interesting to see things through her eyes. She was born in germany. I don’t know much about my grandmother, & I never will now that she has past away. But I have come to know her more through photos than when she was alive. Photos really are a beautiful thing.

        I am really enjoying the theme/design of your web site.
        Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility
        issues? A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer
        but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any recommendations to help fix
        this issue?
