Gone are the days of the 36 exposure roll of film, which forced the photographer to be economical with his shots and to think ahead and look closely at the scene. I love the freedom of digital, and the unreal convenience of it all, but I think the point of photography is to get the human brain inserted in the process. To make aesthetic and technical adjustments that support the photographer's vision.
Think of what it means to cram 1000 images on an SD card. Wow. What a temptation to become a machine gunner.
