Over-reaction?
In reply to bford, 5 months ago

I respect anyone who would follow your recommendation, but I certainly would not find it disturbing or sickening to hear of others who keep many many 1000s of images, and do find it a bit of an over-reaction

I am guilty of being in the camp you mention.

But your comment has made me think. I maybe will keep all (within reason of course, and especially where the images concern family and friends) and separate off the keepers more studiously.

In the future we may come back to a different view of a situation and decide that that image or part thereof is worthy of further study. Why destroy that option?

Digital storage is irrelevantly inexpensive and eco-friendly, so we do have the luxury to keep nearly all of the images we take. I can't quite see the problem.
