Going from film to digital has made it so easy to take lots of photos. I take some kind photo every week. Lately it has been birds. I can't even begin to guess how many photos of birds I have. It was easier for me when the film was developed and photos were printed. I could arrange them in albums and then look at them when I wanted.
I just checked one of our computers, the one that has the fewest photos on it and it adds up to more than 35 GB. I must have over 150 GB on the other computer. These are all personal, not business.
So, here is my dilemma. I am a photo hoarder. I cannot seem to throw any away. I am so delusional that I entertain the idea if I throw one away, it will end up being the answer to a crime, or have someone famous in it, or some other ridiculous reason. Also, I have more photos of my grandchildren, and I cannot bear to throw them away. It seems like I am throwing the person away. I know I am crazy about this. I know I am not being reasonable. I know I am putting off what has to be done. Maybe if I admit to being a photo hoarder, it is the first step to the cure. What do you think?
It's pitiful, really. Here are some examples of photos I've been keeping. Bill is right, I really do need help!
