Yep.

The fact that one person finds is significant and valuable does not mean that others will.

The only difference with digital is that it will give someone the chance to toss it without agonizing over whether they should keep it or not.

Some of my amateur photographer friends


I had an office mate who had 1,800 photos of his 18 month old child. All labeled. All digital fortunately which made getting the count easier of course. (Even worse I can't remember the exact number but it might have been 18,000.)

Second child was on the way.

There is a well known phenomenon where parents take way more photos of the first child than the children that come after that.
