My dad and my wife are "archivists" in the sense of putting the best snapshots in a photo album that has a prominent place in the bookshelf.

Dad's books were done during the 60's and 70's, all film (or Polaroid).

With my wife, I used to get insecurity pangs because after she was done, she'd hand me the negatives and the "dross" and when I shuffled through the pictures I took... I only saw the pictures that didn't make the cut.
