Rule: "Better have 100 photos and select 10 good ones, instead
of having only 10 photos which are all crap." ;-)

In digital photography, this is much more simple and convenient
than in the "developing times", especially as you can delete
the 90 photos not needed anymore - yes, they _can_ be deleted.
But with cheap storage options available for few $, it seems
to have become more common to just move the unneeded photos
to a "secondary location", "Just in case!", which sometimes
will never happen...
