But part of my distraction at home today was marking the end of an era... I cleared all of my remaining images out of the photography website I started using in 2002 (and stopped using in around 2006 when it became clear the focus of the site had changed). This wouldn't have taken so long, but I wanted to keep all of the comments so I downloaded all the photo pages before deleting them (90 pages later).

It's all part of me current desire to slim down my digital footprint (and there's still a blog post about that rattling around in my head). I think possibly it's part of the annual "Spring Simplification" where I just want to tidy or rearrange or update stuff around this time of year.

And while it's been on my mind for a while, I think I was also partly inspired to do it today because H-San asked me to do some touch-up work on a very old photo this morning, and I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed the zen-like repetition of touching up photos that aren't purely digital (and/or are of people).

But mostly I'm all about being distracted at present...
