A quest for the ultimate, beautiful, meaningful picture

A million photos in two years’ time

A photographer was given the task to follow one of the many Democratic presidential candidates in the United States. Now, two years later, she has a million pictures of Barack Obama and his route to the White House. That was a line I heard in a TV programme yesterday evening; I did not see the item itself.

Just think of that: a million photos! We sure do take too many photos with these digital cameras, for how few good photos will there be among that million? On the other hand: how can you know in advance what will be the one good photo in a whole series?
