Because I have over 60,000 photos, I must do something with the bloody things. Why not inflict my “favorites” upon anyone foolish enough to stumble upon and waste time here.? Good question, huh.? On top of that, this gives me a reason to look at my collection again and again, even if I'm just wasting brain power on deciding which ones to share with the unsuspecting. “Best” is my definition of photos I like, think are visually interesting, or have special meaning.
