Picture this....


Like me, you probably have boxes of old photos that your parents and grandparents took and saved: looking thru them, it’s clear when Polaroid pictures started – they revolutionized the way pictures were processed. In our lifetimes, we’ve all benefited from the development of smartphones to take pictures – it’s so easy to shoot and store them online. Just think if the evolution of these new ideas for photography never happened because Edwin Land and Steve Jobs hadn’t been willing to throw out old ideas. Everything around us is the result of someone having the courage to say “what if”, the strength to look over the horizon, the willingness to be a catalyst for change: professionals are never afraid of new ideas and the improvements they might bring.  While hot everything can or should be improved, we should be prepared for where and when great new ideas start to push old ones aside. Keep an open mind and be ready to spot any great new ideas today.

Edwin Herbert Land (1909 –1991): American scientist and inventor, best known as the co-founder of the Polaroid Corporation
