Maybe it’s my Scottish Presbyterian childhood, but I hate waste.
I compost, recycle, re-use, re-purpose. Every few days I feel compelled to empty the fridge of left-overs, which makes for some interesting (but usually tasty enough) meals.
Why am I telling you this?
When I was thinking of a post for Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge, it occurred to me that — however silly it may sound — I have the same approach to my photos. Shots that don’t quite work but aren’t completely dud have a tendency to end up in the digital equivalent of the “you never know, it might come in handy someday” box.
Which I guess makes photo-editing tools the mechanism for turning digital leftovers into something … um, tasty? Or at least fun.
