Quote of the day: going on an 'image diet'

The country's unparalleled binge on personal picture taking and sharing has one photographer rethinking his own regimen.

Forget Atkins or South Beach diets--one photographer plans to trim down by reducing his digital-image consumption. In a New York Times story published Thursday about the country's unparalleled binge on personal picture taking and sharing, one photographer alludes to his own new regimen.

"I'm thinking of going on an image diet," Frederick Redden, 52, of Stuart, Fla., wrote on a Flickr discussion board, adding that he plans to delete some of the 250 pictures he had put up due to unpopularity. Flickr is a photography Web site where half a million people have plunked 8.2 million pictures since it opened for business last summer.
