Re: What will happen to your photos after you pass?

Not much.

  • If I depart unexpectedly early, some will live on with peers or on social media sites.
  • If I marry and my spouse outlives me, she will likely keep some favorites for her lifespan.
  • If I marry and have kids, they'll probably keep a selected archive pertaining to their childhood and growing up.
  • In any of these scenarios, the vast majority will float off into obscurity like leaves in the wind.

But I understand that this is a hobby for my enjoyment and my journey and don't expect others to carry the torch. Each future generation needs a finite number of photos from the one before it, and it's unfair to demand that others mummify your passions.
