Picture Woes

Standing at my own mailbox looking down the street.

Yesterday Blogger let me upload two photos.  Then I could upload but I just kept getting the infamous red x when I tried to put the images in to my post.  Then last night my camera card went kaflooey.  BEFORE I was able to get my photos saved to my hard drive!!!  All my photos I took on our outing Tuesday...gone.  Except the one above which I managed to have saved before the card just went totally bad.  All recovery operations were futile.  Here I was so proud of myself for remembering to bring my camera on our little day trip and actually taking photos.  Now lost to oblivion.  I'm sad. 
Sometimes technology can take a flying leap. ;-)

Aaaww what a shame, Gail. Modern technology is brilliant when it works!

Anyway, love the view you have. I'd love to live somewhere rural - except in the depths of winter. lol

Too bad about your camera card. Technology can be so frustrating some times. Very pretty shot of the mountain and trees. I live in a wooded area on a mountain too. This time of year it is beautiful.

I thought I heard a "Grrrr" yesterday. So sorry you lost your photos. Been there. It's not fun.

You'll just have to take another trip :D

Gail, you live in God's backyard. That picture is so beautiful. It has been far too long since I have visited that part of the mountains. You are so lucky to live up there. I used to have kin folks that lived up that way. That picture brings back some great memories for me. Thanks for posting it.

Oh I hear you, Gail. I had Blogger uploading pics issues last week. Yesterday it was email that went nowhere, stuck in my outbox.
Sorry to hear you lost photos. No fun.
Hugs, Diane

Oh! I am sad too! I was looking forward to seeing the pics. What a bummer.
The photo you did save though is beautiful. What a fabulous view you have there!!

Oh that's awful, Gail...If you need to replace one of those little plastic cards inside the camera, out of the blue, we found them at Office Depot and they were like ten dollars...that was a bargain!

I almost lost mine too, but they were for photos for the newspaper...can you imagine my panic?

What a beautiful picture you took...It looks like dreamland...That only means one thing--You need to play hooky again and go adventuring soon!!!

Oh Gail - Just looking at that magnificent view down your street will surely put all these technology problems in perspective!
For some reason that photo is the only one you need and how divine!
