It started with my laptop. I had over 5000 photos in my laptop and it needed some weeding out. They were all over the place and I had to figure out how to categorize them and put them in some order. I also had to get rid of some because they were just stupid or fuzzy or I didn’t even remember who the person was. I end up taking a lot of photos for this blog, for projects and presentations. I end up using a few and the rest just sit there. So what do I do with a photo like this?
I took it when I was getting the oil changed in my car. I like it because it gritty and kind of textural but I’m not sure it’s of any use to me. Out it goes!
And this one I took when I did the post about getting my hair cut. It was a good post, but I didn’t use this photo for painfully obvious reasons:
So this one is a “goner,” probably along with the other photos in that particular set. I’ll start here in my laptop. And from there, I’ll move on to the closets.

All of us have much in common, who knew! It’s heard hitting that delete button on any photos even the bad or strange ones, like letting go of a piece of your past. Maybe that’s why I have too many stacks of bird magazines, bird books, bird toys, & toy pieces all thinking I will get them them someday. And someday I will if just to put them or through them away, LOL I keep the belief that someday I will figure out a way to add an extra 10 to a 24 hour day or so I can take care of all these and enjoy them like I had planned when I got/bought or ordered them. Maybe that’s the secret… quit getting them till I get the extra hours! :>
