Alle foto´s verloren...

- Lost every picture -

Another bummer in my life: I accidentally deleted almost all of my pictures on my external harddisk from december 2008 until Queen´s Day (April 30th) 2009.

Maybe I should start making pictures with a Polaroid and / or Fuji Instax camera´s... Or just analogue camera´s like the one I really would love to own at the moment: Yashica Mat 124 (or a Rolleiflex!).

Fortunately, this picture was one of a few ones ones that survived the delete-session.

- My ex-neighbour, Rolf, and his friend Aysan (London) posing while selling old stuff on the streets. -

This beautiful Fuji Instax picture was taken by a lady / customer while strolling through the busy streets of de Pijp in Amsterdam, during Queen´s Day...searching for beautiful and antique, cheap ass stuff. Aysan asked the lady if she could take a photo of her and Rolf...I find it such a perfect picture, I had to take of pic of it!

Why am I being punished all the time? Maybe I´m just being clumsy.

and good to see you again! i haven't been here in a while and must remember to come back more often!

Ahh, Daniel I am so sorry! I would be extremely bummed out if I were in your place, and even now, I feel bummed out because I understand what this moment must be like for you! :(

But this picture you have here sure is great; the picture in general and the picture within it, they're amazing.

These days I have been thinking of making prints of my digital photos, so I never lose them, and also of getting an analogue, I might take my mom's old Canon when I go to California at the end of this month, we'll see.

I hope things get better for you. Have a great week!

How on earth did that happen!? I feel sorry for you Daniel, because I know how much it sucks to lose your files (my external HD broke down once). But deleting them yourself? :o

Love the polaroid and Fuji Instax stuff a lot!

p.s. do you know where to get that music player from that I used?

diane said...

Making prints as a back up is an excellent idea. Sometimes, making a big mistake is your own way of telling yourself to downsize. Maybe you have too much on your plate. Whatever the reason, don't feel too bad, it's already done. kiss, kiss

p.s., I always love your comments, cutie. xo

Dat is niet zo fijn. Is mij gelukkig nog nooit gebeurd.

Maar what about Mike?

Laura said...

KUUUUUT! oh dat is echt zuur. Ik had ongeveer hetzelfde toen mijn laptop er opeens mee ophield... Gelukkig had ik een hele hoop op m'n externe gezet, maar toch nog een hoop herinneringen weg. En AL mijn muziek ;__;

Awww I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your photos, that's so sad. I'd hate to lose that many pics and the memories they carry to make up for my lack of memory

At least that 1 survived!! It's a great shot too, i'm sure your friend Rolf gets told all the time he has great bone structure... awesome

E said...

what a unique shot/composition this photo has! seriously. it's a little mysterious too.. I really like it D.

Het zier er zelfs zo grappig uit dat ik door ene Martine Mussies ben gevraagd voor een item in haar blad Encore!Magazine, een online tijdschrift over muziek, kunst, e.d. :D

grace e. said...

I'm actually not sure. The photos were from Nylon Korea. I'm thinking that the mag was featuring Levi's for that issue. Anyway, sorry about your loss on the harddrive. I've been having problems with my mac too :(

Monika Marie said...

What a tragedy!! Guess it's a good excuse to blog more of your pics and get out there and take some more!!! I'm so sorry for your loss, hope things get better, and I do love the instax pic <3 peace
