My 10,000th photo…

…taken on my Canon SD400 since I got it the week I was looking for an apartment in Santa Rosa and Sebastopol back in April 2005. Two years and 10,000 photos. Wow. That’s an average of more than 13 photos a day!

A cup of sugar in a cup of water, the 10,000th photo taken with my Canon SD400 since April 2005

The photo shows a cup of sugar in a pot with a cup of water, taken for my post on making Meyer lemonade, but one I ended up not using.

I didn’t realize it was my 10,000th photo right away because for some reason the unique photo ids wrapped at IMG_9900.jpg, with this one being IMG_0100.jpg. The wrap around moment itself occurred at the Louvre while I was taking pictures of Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss.

The first photo taken with this camera? An unintentionally unattractive “Is this thing on?” self-portrait that I have no intention of republishing here.
