The Bright Water adventure has, so far, generated over 3000 pictures that we’ve kept, which probably means that we’ve taken over 30,000. Wow. Way too many pictures to show off.
A fast internet connection and Costco to the rescue.
I picked out 150 (or so) of our favorite trip photographs and uploaded them to the Costco website, then spent about three days organizing them into groups. Each photo-spread is built as a piece, then the page spreads can be moved to create some sort of flow to the book.
The book is 50 pieces of paper (100 pages), the maximum allowed size. I started with a simple design theme, but pretty much ignored it. Instead I chose backgrounds, borders, and arrangements to suit the individual photographs.
The book cost us $50. Crazy cheap, in my mind. I’ll probably put two or three different books together in the future. I don’t want the pictures to go to waste.
