10 Steps to Fewer Photos

According to a recent article, Psychologists Say Taking Too Many Photos Could Wreak Havoc on Your Brain. Here are ten steps to fewer photos:

  1. Only take photos on Tuesdays.
  2. Only take photos between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m.
  3. Only take photos on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
  4. Leave the camera in the car.
  5. Leave the camera at home.
  6. Wait for the perfect moment.
  7. Buy the smallest memory card possible.
  8. Switch to film.
  9. Wait for a full moon.
  10. Let somebody else take the photos.

Seriously, I think photos are great. Just don’t over do it.

    I fail on all of those! I have my camera in my purse.I bought one so that it is just right to carry everywhere! I take pictures of just about everything. I don’t wait for the perfect moment I am too busy for that. Every moment is perfect! Film? Nope! Full moon ? Maybe! Yes , I do take too many pictures. I love it!
