"This is a good idea of Val's. If 5 bothers people, it's a long way to 30, so maybe something in between. The numbers of photos often overwhelm, and I know I end up missing many I'd truly like to see and think about.  "

How many photos should be posted at any one time or in any one day?

Posted on January 1, 2018 at 12:56pm 7 Comments

I think the number should be FIVE.

Any more, and the occasional photo or two that a person posts just gets lost when another person posts 30 photos, and then another person posts another 30, and then....etc.

Adapting John Lennon's words: "Give photos a chance."

Peace.
