No matter how digitized this world becomes, there wil

l always be a place for photos in a hard copy format, for framing, pinning up on a bulletin board or the fridge, whatever. I’m a framer; I’m also a pinner, a fridge collager, and I like to stick a few photos of the little one and mail them off to West Virginia on occasion. I can’t explain it, except…
