BIG accomplishment this week – thanks to my dear husband who helped me sort out my yet mostly unedited (will it ever be?) collection of compulsively taken photos. Thousands upon thousands of photos. They have now all been tidily collected on a 5T hard drive. The cloud (which was also full) has also been emptied, and – even better – the photographic contents of my phone (which was also full), has also found a new home on that hard drive. Wow, it feels like I just went through an accelerated WeightWatchers crash course (don’t think there is such a thing) and can finally digitally move about again. Hooray! I want the world to know that I count this as a fantastic early Christmas present! It’s not easy moving through life being this technologically challenged, so this was HUGE!
Now I get the fun job of looking through them and weed out all the mediocre ones. I tend to delete the worst photos immediately, but there are always more unworthy ones that I miss. The goal is to have everything easily accessible, and —eventually— the best ones labeled, in one easy to navigate spot. The sorting itself is kind of fun, and a trip down memory lane. You find a lot of good stuff you forgot you had taken, and discover a slew of ones you never knew or forgot you had.
Today’s photo is neither old, nor fantastic, but I like the somewhat melancholy stillness of it. Plus it shows a rather cramped community in the middle of a vast landscape. It was taken from the access ramp looking down at to the houseboat community where I spent so much time recently. All ye bloggers – how do you manage your masses of photos?
