It must be cold; your poor kid's lips are blue.
Congrats on the weight, Chet!


He was working on a frosting cookie. (It is 38°f outside, don't tell my wife).

I have 50#'s to go.

Congrats!
How did the misses do this time? The first one was pretty rough for you.

Better. Last time, she had the HELLP (High Elevated Liver Enzymes, Low [Blood] Platelet] count. This time, she is just fine and dandy (knock on wood). Just ready for it to be done!!

Wow Chet, you have lost a lot of weight.

I noticed that right away too.

Well, I am into my 2nd year of my MBA, and it sucks up every free minute of my life. Between work, MBA, family, there isn't much time to do anything else. I mentioned just a few posts ago, that we are expecting another kid, in T-8 days (due date is the 17th), so hands will be full even more so!!!

No rest for the wicked as they say. I may have to dust off the camera just to get some photos...

as for photos I took in the past, I am still backed up to last august for processing photos in lightroom/ps....

Better to be busy than bored. ;)

I still have lots of photos from over the last 7 years that need processing yet. I just like gathering them. :)

Thanks kids. Down 65#'s since October. Hope to be down another 15 by April 15. Seems very doable.

Good on you. It looks great!

Me thinks Chet is trying to get down to Moostress Mosque Stud Muffin weight.

I'll send an application.

80% of what I take never gets processed. From time to time I will wander back and pick a few just for fun. My typical work flow.

1. take images (lots)
2. download and cull about 25% (obvious bad ones. Missed focus, or some other error.
3. Cull duplicated and pick 1~3 best ones.
4. Process just the best ones. I'm guessing it's about 1 in 5.
5. Archive the rest.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

I figure my final keeper rate is about 2%. I do a major cull every winter, and revisiting previous years, and I did a major delete-blitz in early Feb. last month. Down to about 3000 images! So considering all the shots I have ever taken (not counting removing obvious duplicates which would be numerous thousands), yeah I have kept 1 or 2%.

I have actually significantly cut down the number of pictures I shoot when out and about. For instance, this weekend we went to the zoo and I brought home 68 images. I have gone back to my old film habits taking a lot more care with each image.

My process is similar, at least through the first 3. I only process the good ones if it is something that I (or someone else) is keen to see. The rest are in the "later" pile. :)

I do have them all backed up good though.

Just saw about 15 or so of the old crew on fb. All miss this place. I guess that's why we always leave the lights on. Like a parent, we always hope the kids will stop by for a visit.

Too many chat threads already. Let this one fade away.
