Two months ago something terrible happened, the iPhoto Application on my MAC desktop CRASHED! I guess it had been giving signals such as: “Are you sure you want to download more pictures? Memory is running low!” I had not only dismissed the recurrent message, I had not even backed up my photo library of over 6000 pictures! Can you imagine how devastated I was when one morning I opened iPhoto and my pictures had disappeared? In complete shock and unable to think, I tried to search for the lost photographs but all I could find where pics that belonged to my son and that I never even seen before . . . crazy!
I let the days go by, hoping that giving the computer a break it would magically go back to its old self. Well, it did not happen; what happened instead was that my blogger friend Meg, from Meg Travels, invited me to participate in “Capture the Colour”, an invitation that at any given day would have got me super excited, but on that particular day, I actually panicked.
“Capture the Colour” was an opportunity to share some of my favorite photographs. Furthermore, it was yet one more opportunity to share my Italy with you. I had no choice, but find my lost photographs.
More than six weeks have passed; I have been since trying to search for my photographs in every folder, subfolder, sub-sub-folder . . . and I finally managed to find, in no particular order, almost all my pics. I have been spending hours everyday trying to reorganize my photo library – on an external hard drive! – I predict it will take many more hours. Despite the distress I just could not pass on Meg’s invitation and so here I am with my 5 photographs, which are probably not my best, but still, they carry a lot of great memories!
THANK YOU MEG!
