Today's episode of 'I knew that but...' is the find tool. Full of a plethora of options and obnoxious behavior. Including not following symlinks, even on the cmdline.

Which means my photo backup tool ( stopped working when I moved the giant piles of photos elsewhere and symlinked to them. In January :/

The fix is simple, add `-H` to the cmdline so it will follow the one on the cmdline, but not in any of the directories it enters below that.
