|Rose Island Lighthouse, Newport RI|
If I were to try to describe this day, I'd use the term "mixed bag." Today at long last the blocks of time I try to set aside each day for ongoing projects were for the images I made while Tal and I sailed the great American waterways a couple months ago. This is a task I have so wanted to tackle and I am glad to have it now at the top of the list and to have begun.
As pleased as I am, however, I have to admit that it is an incredibly tedious process. Analyzing every individual image -- all 2000 of them. For quality, usefulness. Keep or delete. That's the first decision. Applying key words. Who. What. When. Where. Adding a caption. Performing a minimal edit on nearly every one. Cropping. Correcting color. Dodging, burning. Sharpening. Again and again and again.
I am tired. Fortunately, the images are in folders by date. So, I'm pacing myself. One day at a time.
Two days done. Fifteen to go.
