So here's a fun little fact: I took over 6000 photos in Tokyo.
Here's a less fun fact: That was a real pain in the ass to organise. I currently am working without Lightroom, so am making do with Apple Photos. In fairness, it's not too bad, it does what it's meant to do and does it in a relatively simple way. But it's not my go-to workflow, so editing these down has been time consuming.
But editing is a must. I am self-indulgent with my photos, and after New York I realised that while I am interested in every one of the 97 photos of the Empire State Building, not everyone is. Context plays a major part, it's MY photo of a time I was there, it's the nearest physical embodiment of a memory. But to anyone else, one or two photos is enough - "Look, this is the Empire State Building. Now you've seen it". I think being a (very) amateur photographer and still learning the techniques available to me has encouraged me to take more photos than I normally would - I strive to do things manually, so for every photo that I'm proud of, there are maybe 10 that went in the bin.
I will admit that of that 6000, there was a large number that were part of timelapse captures, so that number is also inflated in another way. I adore timelapse videos, but the one thing I have learned in Tokyo is to plan them. Literally sitting for hours while the camera merrily snaps away is all well and good, it's reading time. But after an hour you find a setting was wrong, ugh.
That said, here's the edited down 166 photos - and I find it amusing that they reflect me so well as there's a few from the different districts I visited, the things I saw, but there is a large percentage that are of food, disney or just messing about with the camera.
