It’s picture day for my 5 year old, which reminds me of picture day when I was growing up. As I recall, school pictures were a really big deal. It was one way to reliably get a good photo of me every year. But now we take photos of our kids daily with high-resolution cameras and probably have more pictures than we’ll ever know what to do with. Sure many of them are candid and certainly lack the professional polish of a studio shot, but a few of them are brilliant.

Now, I’m guessing my kids won’t think that school pictures are all that special. What do you think?
