I could admit that I’m a collector. I’m a hoarder. And a procrastinator when it comes to exporting photographs that should’ve shared to people who cared. A different kind of holiday rush is happening to me as I am editing last year’s December photos.
I’m glad because I’m making progress and I’m down to the last two albums that will finally see the light of day. I also managed to sweep off clean my 2018 queue folder. But lo and behold! This is not the case for years 2016 down to 2005—when I started going digital with Canon EOS 350D (I miss that that little gadget).

We have that capability—to memorize every millisecond that happens in front of our eyes—through technology. But does it mean we could, we should?
Even the brain avoid hurting itself by not storing everything—only the important ones.
So today, I am updating my photo documentary process by dismissing the offshoots. This is to put highlight in giving thoughtful capturing of moments instead of over-shooting and then choosing what’s best in post processing.
