To the world?  Nah...I'm not quite that vain.

To my family?  I'd hope quite a bit.

I'd love to be able to get my hands on well preserved B&W negatives of my
early childhood.  Or of my parents when they were younger.

That I'm creating archival negatives is most likely of no consequence or
concern to anybody other than my family.  I'm having fun doing it, and
leaving a present whose worth can't be measured in dollars and cents.

Back in college, I created a series of pictures of my dad's dad.  Those are
the best pictures I have of him.  Wish I had done the same with my other
grandparents.  It's why I ignore my mom when she says she doesn't like to
have her picture taken.  :)
