Actually, if you use tags for topics, editing, people and locations, you can get automatically list of photos matching that tags (just to answer the question: "I want to see all of my shots of trees"), so it' (almost) the same.
After downloading and purging the worst images, the first thing I always do is tagging my images.

At the moment I prefer to organize my albums/directories in a tree like this:
Since for me it's easier to remember that I shot some images in a certain date than any other.
This way I can find photos also using my file manager (dolphin), and it's easier to manage backups (I put on a DVD a set of albums taken one after the other).
