Over the past few weeks, Chris and I have probably dedicated 30-40 hours to pouring over our Africa pictures and sorting out the good from the ugly. (Yes, we did manage to keep a few pictures of me.)
This picture sorting process is far from complete as the good pictures number well over 500 so far and our goal is to weed out the top 100. At least we’re making progress. I never expected that it would be such a daunting task.
Our trip to Africa was divided into three distinct parts, a safari, the Kilimanjaro climb, and a trip to the island (archipelago really) of Zanzibar. I would say that we are closest to having the safari pictures organized compared to the other two parts of the trip, but it is hard to say because
this picture sorting business is not being done in any particular order although we are taking a very scientific approach for the picture review process it is difficult to gage how long it will take in total.
The pictures are sorted by timestamp, so we set a goal for ourselves to look through one or two days worth of pictures each night. It is kind of similar to picking out which food picture to post with a recipe except that we have over 6000 vacation pictures whereas I can usually limit myself to taking less than 20 pictures of a particular dish. (Maybe that’s why my food pictures are not nearly as good as these animal pictures?)
More pictures coming soon!
