DURING MY RECENT TRIP TO THE OUTBACK, MY IPOD EXPLODED while I was trying to charge it on the Uluru campground (yes, exploded – there were sparks and everything).
And just like that I lost the majority of my pictures. Luckily I saved my pictures from Tasmania, but most of my pics from my 4 days in Adelaide and my trip to the outback — gone.
Like, really hurt.
Because if there’s one thing I love more than anything – it’s taking pictures.
Lots and lots of pictures.
Pictures of cool things.
Pictures of everything.
Sure, I have an actual camera. But I loved, loved, LOVED taking pictures with my iPod.
Because it was fun. And I got to take pictures like this:
I had a lot of really great pictures on my iPod from my Outback Trip ( it died on the end of day four on my 6 day trip). I have some pictures on my actual camera and some of the people from my tour emailed me some pictures, but it’s just not the same.
When I arrived in Sydney, I went to the Apple store to see if they could recover my pics somehow. They couldn’t. So I just bought a new upgraded iPod because I’m so used to taking pictures with an iPod. (Though I must say, the Apple store didn’t really try to recover my pictures but really just pushed me to buy a new one.)
It still doesn’t feel the same and I haven’t really been in a picture-taking mood lately, which is shocking because I’m always (ALWAYS) in a picture-taking mood.
I had amazing pictures to share on this blog from my Outback trip, but most of them are gone. So I’m just going to have up my game as a storyteller and use my words and a bit of creativity.
I know people don’t normally take pictures with their iPod Touch, but I did.
Have you ever lost your pictures? How did you deal?
