It’s funny how one things leads to another!
A few days ago my elderly Samsung Galaxy smartphone suddenly started to go flat very quickly. By very quickly, I mean from 60% charge down to 0% in a matter of seconds.
I charged the phone and the same thing happened. I replaced the battery and the same thing happened.
So next I set about cleaning all the trash and unused apps off the phone to see if I there was something running in the background causing the problem.
One thing lead to another and after deleting Facebook, Netflix, Messenger, Stuff, and a handful of other apps, the next thing I knew I was culling photos from my Google Photos account. If you use a smartphone and have a Google Photos account you probably know that every photo you take on your smartphone automatically uploads to Google Photos depending on your account setup.
Thousands of deleted photos later I ended up with a mere 3,043 left in my account. Most of the remaining photos are from our trip to Europe and Rarotonga last year, but many are just random photos taken as I wandered around town.
Here are a few of those that caught my eye in the culling process.
