So after standing around in the rain and mud and taking photos of this year’s festival, I came home, dried off, put warm clothes on and started to write up my recap for Monday’s post. I was excited to go through my 100+ pictures of all the amazing acts I saw.
When I opened my photos, I go the above image or this message.
I panicked. It looked like my memory card had been damaged, corrupting all my photos and there was no way to fix it. All the time I spent on getting these great shots and thought everything went to waste. I got very upset, sulked for a bit and seethed with anger when I saw other media outlets showing off their photos.
Thanks to some very tech savvy internet friends, I figured out a way to recover some of the photos. My memory card is not as damaged as I thought and at least some of the images were salvageable. It’s not everything (I lost some really great shots), but some photos are better than none at all.
So I present to you in no particular order, my (very abridged) slideshow of photos from the Richmond Folk Festival
