Why I never delete anything

I often get asked questions about digital workflow. In particular, folks want to know the process I use to pick and reject images. It’s honestly something that I’m not very good at. Right after a shoot I usually go through my images and pick the few that really stand out. I’ll work on those until I’m happy with them and then start going back through the rest of the images. Usually is the important word.

Yesterday while organizing some files on my hard drive I stumbled on this moonlit shot from November 2008. I honesty don’t recall ever seeing it and barely remember taking it. Opening this image for the first time felt a little bit like winning the lottery. It’s a good thing I never delete anything.

I wonder what else I can find?
