It had started well enough, I had decided today was the day that I was going to purge some old photos to make room for more recent stuff, something I have been meaning to do for longer than I care to think.
With four external hard drives of photos to wade through, I was in for the long haul.
That was the intention anyway, as I began to look at the first few folders, the memories of days out with friends and family were there in front of me, the digital equivalent of my parents old box of photos that came out just a few times a year, normally coinciding with the visit of great Aunt Mabel.
My earlier determination long since evaporated, instead of deleting unwanted images, here I sat uploading a few previously unedited images, adding more to my hard drive instead of the planned purge.
Laughing in the face of my own inefficiency, I was quite enjoying a trip through my photographic journey of the last few years.
My backup photos remain in the unsorted manner in which I began four hours ago but when I get my new hard drive later next week, it will be properly catalogued….. maybe.
