When I sat down last night to edit my photos for this week’s SiMC, I had a full-blown panic attack… I feared that the above photo was all I’d get to share. My 4+ year old laptop is in her final death throes. While this is a First World Problem, I’m more than a little twitchy about the fact that all my photos, raw and edited, are stored on my curmudgeonly aluminum Mac… all 16,000 of them. And yes, you read that right – SIXTEEN THOUSAND.
The Mister set up my laptop to automatically back up to our external hard drive, but I’ve never tested it to make sure it was working right. Needless to say, I’m worried about saving my files. We have some work ahead of us today.
As for my Sunday set, I thought I could point out that I featured several photos from the past week in other posts:
On Sunday morning, when I tried once again to coax my Mac to cooperate, much to my surprise, she allowed me to move a select number of photos to a thumb drive. I didn’t want to be greedy, so I copied the raw images I meant to share today, and a couple more I wanted to use this coming week.
I have our home computer and my daughter’s old laptop to work with, but it’s just not the same. My beloved MacBook has seen me through some good and bad times. I will mourn her.
Here is my abbreviated Sunday in My City offering, taken on the drive home from a visit with my College Kid in North Carolina. I took all of these with my camera phone, so the quality of the images is not great. (If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen most of these too.)
(Photos shot with a Nikon D60, using an 18-55mm, 55-200mm, 20mm f/2.8 wide-angle, 50mm f/1.8 prime lens, Nikon CoolPix S205 and/or iPhone4)
