I gave this photo album to a co worker that has recently taken an interest in photography! He loved it and said that he couldn't wait to put pictures in it! He really liked the fact that it was "All natural" looking! He's big in to the organic thing so it was right up his alley and his girlfriend thought it was great because it was manly looking and you rarely see things of this nature that are manly looking. SO I highly reccommend it!!
