I grew up in the pre-digital, pre-selfie days. Back then you snapped a photo with your camera then you had to wait at least 24 hours to see the result – unless you had a Polaroid camera that is. In college, I even had my own little darkroom in the cellar of my rented flat where I developed and printed black and white masterpieces – well, they were in my eyes… I was quite intimately acquainted with most of my photographs – framing my favourite prints, creating photo albums and pinning them on my pin board above my desk – an actual Pinterest board, imagine that!
These days I take literally hundreds of digital photographs every week (admittedly most of them are food!) but I never get them printed. To my shame I still have photographs of my children as babies, Christmas celebrations and holiday snaps that I haven’t even sorted through yet. So I was delighted to try Square Snaps – a London-based company that quickly and easily makes your digital snaps a tactile reality. You can upload from Instagram or from your computer and the prints come in a variety of fun sizes or even postcards and as they offer worldwide delivery you can surprise family and friends around the globe.

The theme is springtime – and you are free to interpret however you like and enter as many times as you want.
