Why there are so many photos scanned from my first rolls? Being a graduate student, I had a lot of free time and little money, thus was considering carefully how to spend every frame. Also, processing all these scans to put them on the site wasn’t taking my time away back then.

Later, the number of rolls shot became no concern as long as it helped obtain better final result, so I was getting fewer keepers per roll (but probably not per hour). Note that less than one frame from an average roll ends up on my site, and the similar figure in respect to time spent on photography looks even more pathetic. I’m glad it’s a hobby, not a business :)
