Teddy Bear almost didn’t make it.

I had thrown out over eight thousand images from the bloated archives. I was just beginning an aggressive slash and burn through the inventory. But second thoughts nagged me in the days that followed. Late night, I rummaged through the trash, all the while questioning “why.” I salvaged about 300 images worthy of a second chance. Of those, only a small handful might survive a more thoughtful purge.

It looks good for Teddy.
