It seems like everything I do requires additional, mostly unnecessary work after I do it.
Once I’ve finished a roll of film or imported an SD card I scan, edit, caption, export, and upload to one or more of SmugMug, Flickr, my photoblog, or Instagram, and in the case of film, I make a contact print in the darkroom and carefully file away the negatives.
Sometimes I wonder if the only reason I do things is so that I can share them. That’s a depressing thought.
It’s exhausting. Can’t I just enjoy doing (and having done) the thing without spending so much time making sure there’s a public record of it?
