The world's now a camera

 Taking a group portrait@Mosteiro dos Jerónimos

Due to the transforming facility of digital technology, we must take more photos and videos than ever before. During a visit this morning to the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos every couple, every group appeared to have at least one camera. Quite what we do with this avalanche of images is another matter. What proportion, I wonder, remain stored in cameras and on hard disks never to be seen?   

Have I got all of this in?

Photos are interesting. Especially digital ones. Sooner or later someone will invent the missing piece of the jigsaw puzzle that will recognize and organize _all_ the photos online (probably increasing in a year more than pictures were taken the whole 20th century) to form a massive visual data bank and create images you can travel within. There's more than enough high quality material to create the ascent to Eiffel and the views over Paris. Maybe combine this with Google maps or alike? Someone's probably building the software already.
