The other night I was looking through my Flickr account, and I stumbled across several photos that made me think, "Why did I upload that?"
They weren't even old photos, some of them -- they'd just ceased to say or mean anything to me. Some were uploaded solely to share with friends on a short-term basis. So I've embarked on a project to clean out my Flickr. It won't make much difference -- I have more than 12,000 pictures there, and I'll probably only remove 100 or so. But it will make me feel better knowing that anyone browsing my photostream won't stumble onto stuff that I think, frankly, sucks.
So, yeah, that's what I'm doing today.
It's allowing me to recover from yesterday, when I walked around Shoreditch for a couple of hours in really cold weather. We're having our first serious cold snap of the winter, with temperatures in the high 20s when I woke up this morning. It's even supposed to snow tonight, which should be interesting!
I got some good photos yesterday, but my hands got so cold they burned. I need some of those fingerless gloves, so I can operate my camera in winter and still preserve the circulation in my fingers.
