Having a digital camera at your disposal liberates you in many ways. Now, you are no longer too worried about the image. You can shoot, examine the image and shoot again. Additionally, images weigh very less as compared to paper photographs and hence can be stored easily.
The sad part is that we end up taking too many pictures/photos. In my case, each year, I have been taking pictures of the Copper-pod tree when it blooms. While I get some good pictures, many are not great, as the tree is far away, I am shooting at maximum 10X zoom range and the tree moves due to breeze.
