Blog Photos

When I upload new photos to my computer I go through and keyword them so I can perhaps find them later. The amount of keywording really depends on how I feel at the time, sometimes I go the extent of labeling subject or color most often I just do location and sometimes lens.

One set I always keep up is the keyword for photos I have used in this blog, so I know that I don’t post the same photo twice. Likewise when I am adding keywords I pull aside photos to use in future blog posts, either as an addition to a post or as a subject.
