Then I went home and wrote up my Lucky FABB post and was so exhausted after that, that I didn't download these photos off the camera.
Last night I went out to take photos, got to the beach, set up the tripod and for some reason - I have no idea what possessed me - I pressed the menu button on the camera. Saw that I didn't format the card last night, so I decided to do it.
The moment I said, yes I'm sure, delete contents of card, I realized I hadn't taken off the photos.
I had a little panic attack, immediately packed everything back up and went home.
Called my Brother.
He told me most memory cards come with free card recovery software you can download, but there is a catch, you need a number off the packaging. Obviously I threw that away years ago.
Thankfully my father came to the rescue and produced a SanDisk package. Once I jumped through all their hoops, gave them all my personal information and promised my first born, I was able to recover my photos.
Thank God. I love this outfit, and I adore these photos. The sunlight is only in this spot for a short time late in the summer, and I love being able to capture it.
(By the way, I skipped my usual processing - these are practically SOOC)
