BUT, when I just took a photo that I know in my heart I'm going to want to paint, I point my phone or camera to the ground and snap another photo. Why? So that it's real easy to identify the photo's location later when I download all of them. (I typically come home from Montreal with 1600 photos. They all go into a folder dated with that year and month).

Similarly, if I'm sketching en plein air and want to finish it later in my Studio, I make sure to take a closeup of the scene and then point down at the ground. The one other thing I do is take a pic of my sketch to that point. It sometimes comes in handy if I later want to do a work-in-progress post about it.
