This exchange piqued my curiosity, so I checked my files.  In the last year 
I shot 17,757 digital pictures (keepers) at work and 682 personal ones.  
Last March I only saved 12 images.
I think I developed about seven rolls of film, when I used to sometimes go 
through two or three rolls a week.

Looks like my prolific days are behind me (but I'm enjoying mining my files 
for forgotten shots that I never had time for previously).
