I consider it a good day when I take at least 200-400 photos. The flip side of this—at last count, I have over 100,000 photos. I’ve gone through multiple laptops and hard drives. There are photos I clearly remember taking even if they are years ago. Others—like this shot—I feel like I have seen for the first time today.
Based on my filing system, it was taken at the Ft. Worth Botanic Gardens. The butterfly is on a plant known as salvia—or scarlet sage.
Don’t wait until you reach over 100,000 photos to start sharing them with others. Hoarding them doesn’t do anyone good. It’s also interesting to see how you have progressed as a photographer over the years with different cameras and improved skills. Don’t be afraid to share your talents!
