Request fulfilled unsatisfactorily


Dear Life is a Fountain or Clerkmanifesto or whatever the hell you are these days:

Lately I have been reading in this space an awful lot about you reorganizing your photographs. Perhaps you are writing about this so much lately because all you do all day is reorganize your photographs. 

You do you. 

I'll just nap for a bit.

But I was interested to hear that you deleted over 22,000 photographs. This gave me the impression that there were 22,000 photographs I had not seen. 22,000 incredible treasures from deep in your archives. 

That's a ton of photographs.

Can I see some?


Huge fan, never get enough content!

Dear Beau,

Thanks for your interest.

Here are the 22,000 photos you were interested in.

Oh no.


I deleted them!

I knew I'd need them some day! Why have I deleted them? Oh my god!

Let's see. What do I have?

Ah, here are three photographs I almost deleted because I had carefully retained 20 copies of them that were cropped or edited with minute variations.

Thank god I kept them!

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
