This shot tells it all

I can't believe it. I really can't believe it. I'm really so low today. I've lost ALL my really great images that I was reserving for one special season that I got from Nigeria. How did it happen? I don't know. Between the two computers they have gone. I feel like crying. I have nothing to show you that is spectacular!!! I'm so SAD.

Any luck finding 'em yet... fingers been crossed since morning and aching now!
They're gone....but I have two shots from the lot I lost. So I'll show them tomorrow and the day after, then it's back to the usual rat race of looking for stuff to put up. Don't worry I'll work something out.

Sorry to hear that. I know if I lost my pictures I'd be close to depressed. I'm saying close because the fact that I can still go out and start again would console me.

Take comfort and thank God that you lost pictures, not the ability to take pictures. smile
