I visited a stately home a few months ago. Almost every room had a collection of stuffed birds or cased insects (many were duplicated (in fact, in some cases there were dozens of the same variety). This was the home of someone who obviously liked to "bag" his prey, and show it off with pride.

Thankfully those days are over, but it lead me to wonder what today's baggers do. We've recently had someone join the site who's clearly joined as a publicist as he's boasting all over the internet that he's bedded 100,000 women!

But for the rest of us, what do we bag photographically? As a "jack of all trades" photographer I'm constantly trying new things and adding a wide variety of subjects to my photography archives. I suppose my glass case is ePHOTOzine. I guess some "bag" camera kit! Others focus on one aspect of photography (say birds) and bag every variety.

What is it that leads us to collect? Is this mostly a man thing? Did I Spy books start it off? Is it hereditary? These sorts of thoughts drift into my head from time to time. So I thought I'd share them with you Wink

Hmmmmmmmmmmm - That's that Boyd !! Smile but lets work this out for a moment - if he says that he's slept with 100,000 women and allowing for two girls a day (unlikely) and assuming that he didn't become sexually active 'til say 15 - that must make him 129 years old !! You've got to admire the guy's stamina ( IT IS BOYD !!)

(100,000 divided by 365, -15 , divided by 2 = 129 approx )

I think that there is some slight fibbing going on here !

PS Will you all the way Pete on the tresspassing - Go for It !!
