Clean Up That Camera Card ~ You Probably Meant to Share Those Images Anyway!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with MoonDancer Realty, Dillsboro,NC NC# 218097

Have you ever gone looking for certain photos on your camera card only to discover there more than 400 photos residing on that card? Time to clean up that camera card! It's silly to keep these images to oneself, especially if you meant to share them anyway. 

It might be the nature of our profession, taking photos upon photos of our listings. Sometimes we're taking pictures of things special to our clients. Add to that, lots of us have developed a true love of capturing scenes and events on our cameras. It doesn’t take long to have a ton of pictures to have to wade through. 

For me, I’ll take photos and have in my head something I want to do with them but that pesky making a living thing gets in my way. Take these photos of the adorable Basenjis for example. Our friends/clients bought a home through us early this year and then months ago they held their housewarming party. Yep, months ago! When we were searching for the right house, lots of criteria needed to be met. One of the most important things though was finding perfect environment for the pet family of which these two Basenjis are just part of.

Basenjis are a breed that we weren’t familiar with but always had heard that they have no bark. Kind of sounds like heaven on earth sometimes. While they may not bark in the manner we’re used to hearing they do make an interesting chortling sound. They require a goodly amount of space to burn off energy and the right place for that is at their new home in Franklin, NC.

These little guys have great short coats and are true athletes. They spend a lot of their time indoors with their “humies” but when outdoors they have a huge run. Our friends’ first priority was to set up a large fenced run. The Basenjis are such little devils though, it wasn’t sufficient to just put the chain link fence up, the fencers also had to lay in mechanics cloth along the base of the fence to keep the Basenjis from tunneling out to so called freedom where no doubt they would have met with or created all sorts of mayhem.

It's incredible to me that I even got these shots.  The boys NEVER stopped moving. All six photos were taken within 30 seconds. Recently we got new photos by email from the Basenji parental units proving that these boys can sit still and pose for photos along with their non-Basenji brother.

Back to cleaning up the camera, finally I’ve gotten these pictures off the camera and am including them in this post. At long last I will get them to the rightful recipients, they were meant to be shared all along. We are very happy for our friends and wish them long time good fortune and good health in their beautiful new home not only for themselves but for their four legged family members.

Okay, back to cleaning up the camera card, today's been declared the day to forward on these little gifts for the folks I've been saving them for...it's going to take a lot of coffee!

Mona, that's quite a different perspective from which you took these photos of those dogs!  I usually remove all photos from the memory card when I download them to my computer.  It's a different story with the photos on my phone though!  Enjoy your Sunday!

Hi Sharon, it was a pretty high deck that I was shooting from but it seemed that it was the only way to get them to ignore the camera! Leslie says hi and wishes you a good day.

Silvia, you are much better disciplined than me.  If I could only learn to delete the real estate photos, that would help.

Mona and Leslie - Happy Sunday morning!  For some reason I do manage to get them OFF the card but they are totally clogging up my desktop!!  Perhaps today will be the day to upload them all to Flickr where I store my pix!  Thanks for that kick in the pants.  I do have a hard time though of deleting the ones I know I will NEVER use and only uploading the good ones.  Oh well.  I do have unlimited storage.

I also keep an album on Flickr for the misc ones I know I will want to blog about or create into something.  Of course, there's an album for barns, animals, flowers, pets, trees....  you get the picture!!

Hugs to you both!!

Mona,  Love the pictures of the dogs, now they are keepers.  I have the same problem,  I keep so many pictures and keep buying new cards.  Have a great Sunday!

Just did that last week and the treasures I found that I meant to do something with and just didn't yet!  It is a time consuming task but one that I try to stay on top of or it really becomes a huge chore that gets put off!  Love the doggie photos!

I have a brother who is a connoisseur of just about everything ~ one of which is cameras.  The last time he visited, he gave me the old one (6 months old) and I have been having a blast.  One of the best lessons that he taught me ~ always have both batteries fully charged every time you walk out the door, and always make sure both of your 8 G cards are empty when you go to take pictures.  It is a lesson that I took to heart, and has served me well the last month or two.  Good habit.  Good post.

Hi Cyndi, if I'm lucky the photos get uploaded to a flashdrive.  I haven't graduated yet to Flickr! and...the pun wasn't lost on me - I get the picture!

Good morning Mona. I enjoyed your post and your pictures. As to the clean up process I agree. As to the pictures, you mentioned one of the two with their brother. Did you forget to post it or are my old eyes missing it?

Hi Sheila, nothing wrong with your eyes...Big Brother was trustworthy and could meander among the guests without supervision.  Next time we're invited I'll get his photo too.

That's really funny Mona - I actually hadn't intended a pun and had to go back and read it myself.  I amuse myself sometimes!!! :-))
