Recovered photo [Filler]

My external hard drive failed. The only digital photos at my disposal right now are those (like this one) that are still in my cameras and I can download to my computer again, and the cellphone images that I can download from the cloud (where they are automatically uploaded when taken).

When DSL became intolerably slow to upload photos a couple/few years ago, I stopped backing-up online, implicitly trusting my 1.5Tb external HDD. Without warning (and without dropping it), my external HDD just failed. As of late-May, the manufacturer has it for possible data recovery.

With a dSLR, a point-and-shoot, and a cell phone, it's a half-time job just managing photos … and the operative word there is “job.” Making photographs has long since ceased to be very much fun (as suggested by the fact that I have been two months or more behind in posting for the last couple/few years).

I'm sorry to hear that. While I agree that managing photos has become a job, I keep them backed up always. Even my external is backed up. Have you checked out Amazon photos (if you have Prime)? All my cell phone shots back up to Google Photos.

@danette Amazon Prime = yes. Today I started downloading the cell phone shots that are automatically sent there. Tedious, but at least I'll have some of the recent shots.

Such a cutie! I back up on a hard drive and often upload to Shutterfly, which is free and, for now, unlimited. I can also print from there, as well.
