The Color Purple

I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.
--Alice Walker (b.1944) American writer

During the last two weeks, I've gradually sorted through two years of photos. Ugh. My hard drive was completely full and it was time to do some serious deleting. The moral of the story is to delete early and often and not to put the task off for another day. Truth be told, I backed up everything to an external hard drive before deleting, so in reality, I didn't really have to part with anything! But with the purging and defragmenting of my hard drive (and with some added memory) my laptop is running better than ever. The other big technical change for me is that I'm now using Lightroom to organize and 'develop' all my photos, instead of Picasa. I've still got a lot to learn, but so far I'm very happy I made the switch. As I was going through my two years worth of photos, I came across this violet photo that I took early this spring, but never posted.
