Delete All

Only our memories of Verona...

I'm feeling sick to my stomach, as I deleted all the pictures from my camera card while putting them on my iPad. Oops, big mistake! It is 36' here today in Verona so we got an early start and were home by 3. The thing that makes me the saddest is, in this city of love, we saw four different brides and grooms. They were so happy to have their photos taken by complete strangers and one bride even gave us a thumbs up. Her dress laced up the back with red ribbons. Another beautiful bride sat with her bridesmaid at her side, her dress floating around her like a cloud. Her dad was so happy that we wanted a picture of his daughter. One bride and groom were having their photos taken while eating gelato.

We spent the day looking at the architecture while we walked through this beautiful city, searching for these letters - a, m, o, r, e, l, o, v, e. Our plan was to use these photos to spell out the word love in English and Italian. We found some great wrought iron, old windows and a clock for the letter O.

Dave remembers his yummy cappuccino and the coolness of the lemone granita. I took a perfect panorama of the amphitheatre where the operas are held and pictures of many beautiful churches. In the courtyard of the Casa di Giulietta, there is a bronze sculpture of Juliet – people rub her right breast for luck. But the ultimate in romantic gesturing is the many love notes stuck on the walls and doors in the entrance to the courtyard. "Wherefore art thou Romeo?" I will remember it all even without the photos. Everyone knows how I love to take pictures, so we will go out again tonight after it cools down a bit and take a few. Can't get back these memories but we can make some new ones.

It is now 6 hours later and a 35 400 step day so I managed to snap few photos tonight. Of course I did! I've been given some advice about retrieving the photos which I will do later at home. All is not lost!

Oh good but how?

by beachbuddies

you need to download some retrieval software. Then scan your disk.. It will find all sorts of files.. Most of them will be your images. You just need to rename them and they are back. When you delete your images all you actually do is delete the index. The actual image file is still there. Unless you reformat the card. You can probably do this with your iPad... But I am a pc guy...
