Digital Downsizing

My Wife and I are in the process of downsizing. We had a large home that was great for raising our children but now they are gone it is way to big for the two of us. So we have been in the process of cleaning out, selling off and giving away stuff that we no longer need or use. It is amazing how much you can accumulate over the years.  The same thing goes for my photography I have thousands of photos that I have taken that are stored on hard drives, dvds cds, thumb drives  and in the cloud  probably which most I will not use or look at anytime soon. I like what Ansel Adams said “Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop;” and that is something that I need to work on.

Are We Missing Something?

2017 California Cross Country Trip

On a recent visit to Downtown Las Vegas, I was able to watch  the Fremont Street Experience, which offers free nightly shows featuring 12.5 million lights and 550,000 watts of amazing sound. As I stood there watching the show I could not help but notice so many people attempting to capture this awesome show on their phones. I thought to myself wouldn’t sometimes  it be better if we just put down the phone and just take in the experience. I think at times we miss out when we don’t.
