01/27/09 183 W - + 17 - 11 Last Year's Photos By The Numbers

Speaking of counting photos, the answer to that question for last year is 15,567. That's the total number of "keepers" taken in 2008. Divided by months and days, that averages 1297 per month, and 42.6 per day. Since I shoot in Canon RAW format, a search of all .CR2 files produced said totals. A cool tool called SysExporter allowed cutting and pasting from those results. How much disk space does that translate to? Try 126,135,546 KB, or 126 GB.

What were the total number of pictures taken, period? Double, triple, or quadruple that figure. I'm trigger-happy, and plenty were deleted as I went along. What was the average number of "keepers" per incident? Unknown, or maybe TBD. Might try computing if I have extra-extra extra time.

Notable photo projects in 2008 included stock shots for the RFD yearbook, several special events for occasions both happy and sad, and a handful of ride-alongs (WEMS, GEMS, SFEMS, RDU CFR). Day trips around the state, and NCSFA conference are included in the above numbers. Big trips outside the state are excluded.

Navel-gazing concluded.
