Wow: According to my iPhoto count, I took about 5,700 photos this year — that's almost 500 a month! And that's not counting photos I took for work. As much as I'm a photography buff, I am also pretty social, and feel the need to capture all events (and even when your friends might look at you like you're a paparazzo, they'll appreciate it later when they have the photos).

And I don't just have a hallway full of framed photos to show for it; my boyfriend and I always play a slideshow on our TV when we entertain, so our friends can enjoy the old shots. It's my favorite way to use the photos I took, and I never have to sort through event photos for the "best" ones (though I do that too with my framers).

What do you do with your photos?
