One Thing Leads To Another

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.

Rick - The Occasional Photoblogger

I am Invercargill photographer Rick Harvey – aka The Occasional Photoblogger. I consider myself an opportunist photographer and enjoy taking photographs of ordinary things I see around me, and try to make them appear a little less ordinary and interesting, and while it is always nice to have others appreciate my images, my primary goal is to take photographs that make me happy.
