I take a lot of pictures. People always joke with me that I am a picture whore, we all get a good laugh out of it because really it is true. But after going outside earlier with the kids and playing for a bit it truly hit me. Wow I really do take a ton of pictures.
My husband has been telling me for a while now that our memory is almost full. Two times now he has had to buy extra storage on the computer just to facilitate the mass amount of pictures I take. So I decided to see exactly what that amount really is.
Here it goes:
Since 2003 when I started taking pictures I have 65,398 items. That is my general folder that I put all pictures in. Sixty five thousand! In this year alone I there are 1,598 items, and it’s only the middle of February. In 2010 I there are 10,004 items. Yikes! That is an average of a little over 800 pictures a month.
So yes my love/obsession with photography is real. My dream is to actually learn how to fully use my camera to it’s potential so I can snap pictures even faster instead of using auto. Now I have been dabbling in the manual and automatic aperture settings for a few weeks and I have to say I am loving it. Pictures have so much more depth to them. So if I can continue on down this road I will be a very happy camper.
Now what would a post about photography be without some pictures I took earlier today.
And just because I found this cluster of pine cone’s neat I am adding it on here too. Looks like a star to me.
