Does anyone else suffer from this fear of hitting the delete button?
Deleting My Kids
Does anyone else have multiple versions of the same pictures of your kids (or nieces or pets or grandkids or fill-in-the-blank-with-something-else-that-you-love) because you feel like if you delete the picture you're deleting your kid? When it comes to photography in this digital age, I run with the "take as many shots as you can and one of them is bound to be perfect" camp. I end up with 10-20 pictures of the same pose and have a hard time editing it down to just the perfect ONE. Now that my harddrive is starting to fill up because I have so many pictures (according to my "keyword" counts in iPhoto, I already have 7374 of Annabelle and 1223 of Corgan... but I know there are lots that I missed tagging with a keyword too), deleting photos is getting easier, but I still feel like if I delete a picture, even if it looks just like the previous picture except for a turned up corner in the mouth or something minor like that, then I'm deleting a memory.
