I started taking pictures in the 70's when film came in rolls with 12 pictures on a roll. On a long family vaction of 3 weeks I might be allowed to use 2 or 3 rolls of film and it might be another 2 or 3 months before they where developed.
Sometimes I allowed myself 2 pictures a day - one of scenery and one of family. Sometimes I would go crazy and take more. Especially if we where someplace scenic like Yellowstone.
Now I have 2 digital cameras where I can take over 1000 photos on one memory card. Oh, the luxury! I can stroll through the yard on a beautiful day and snap 50 or more pictures. I'll probably keep 10% or less of them, but it gives me the freedom to try different angles and perspectives. And talk about instant gratification. I can look at them right away, not when the memories of taking the pictures are a distant memory.
