One of the things I’ve fallen behind on due to writing the book is processing my photos. I have a little system I go through to get from camera to prints (to scrapbooking) and it’s been shoved to the back burner time and time again.
Tonight I decided to catch up. Well, maybe not catch up, but make a good faith effort to get through as many as possible.
I take a lot of photos. I delete a lot of photos. I’ve decided to limit the number of photos I upload to Winkflash and print. So for each monthly folder of photos (all the ones that make the cut), I also have a print folder for the month. My goal is to only print 30 photos per month. I don’t usually attain this goal.
So tonight I’ve plowed my way through —
- December: 437 keepers; 124 prints
- January: 317 keepers; 54 prints
- February: 86 keepers; 25 prints.
I’m reminded why it is my goal to do this twice a month. However, I’m also reminded of what a full life we’ve been living these past few months. No wonder it feels like a blur — there’s been a lot happening. I’m thankful I’ve documented it through photos + words. It is this practice of documentation that makes life so much sweeter now and so much richer later.
Unhurried. Finding the magic in the middle of living. Capturing a life of ridiculous grace + raw stories.
