HOUSE FINCH, GOLDFINCH, AND A FEW MORE

MOSTLY HOUSE FINCH, GOLDFINCH, AND A FEW MORE


If nothing else, this pause in space and time has given me good reasons to go back through my downloads. I have an awful lot of downloads that are just sitting on line. I’m never really looked at them. If I don’t process photographs immediately, I often don’t process them at all. I take more photographs and forget the ones I took yesterday.

It’s not whether they are good or bad. I forget great photographs as quickly as really bad ones. It’s just that 15-seconds of short-term memory goes by pretty fast. If I get distracted, that’s it.  Whoosh. My memory is wiped clean until I one day realize there was something I was supposed to remember … and if I’m lucky, I remember. Or not.

      1. Exactly. I like to think of it as the coat hanger effect. A clothes rail can only take so many hangers, and if you squeeze too many on, a few will always fall off at the other end
