Do you hang your photos up in your home? If so, how do you decide what to print?

Thanks for posting that
I’m in a similar position as Doc. I’ve spent hours and hours with my shots, so much so that I fear I’ve lost the ability to see them. And it’s always a surprise when other people look at my stuff. Most of the time they move right past what I consider to be my best shots and pick up on the ones I’d just as soon leave behind.

I don't have enough good photos to make this a difficult decision.

Come to think of it, I might start taking and printing more rapid / candid street photography, just to see how that feels.

The ink for my photo printer is $$$$ though, there's also that.

I ordered some prints from one of those cheap online services and they came out really oversaturated. Not sure if the fault of my source or the printing

That Johnston article was a nice read, thank you!

I think for me it's gonna have to start with just printing stuff again, period. I'm making good headway on a long term goal of catching up on a processing/Flickring backlog that opened up, oh, a decade or so ago. Pretty soon I'll be at the milestone I've set for myself to start getting 4x6 prints to go in my little photo albums that make up the visual story of my life. For no one's benefit but mine, but anyway. Feel like getting those physical versions of images might help nudge me towards selecting more "all time favorite shots" or what have you.
