Captured today at the car wash. This was the pattern the suds left on the window screen, it appealed to me... Have had a disaster with my pc, inadvertently formatted the damn thing, without backing it up, oops! Lost all my photos, all 7000 of them! 😒hope you like this one, have a great weekend all.

Makes a great abstract and I can imagine it would be so effective on a canvas and hung on the wall of a bathroom! So sorry about your disaster. That's a lot of images to have lost.

The suds make a great abstract.
I would be devastated if I lost all my pictures.
Is there no way of retrieving them???

A pleasing abstract that can't compensate for the loss of 7k photos. At least you'll have a fair number archived on EPZ.
I suppose you could treat events as a good reason (or excuse) for going out and taking lots more!
Regards
Bill

Oh no Martin. Nightmare. Thankfully, as Bill mentioned you will have many archived here and any other website you use. I always back my images up on an external now after losing a few thousand images some months back after PC packed up.

Very effective image above Smile Different, i like it Smile

excellent capture.
Now Martin, don't panic.
Put the hard drive in an external box, get a new one, stick it in and then run a recovery program only scanning for picture formats!!!!
DO NOT install anything on the old HD, connect it after starting the recovery program.
I had it once that a HD died on me, but could read 80% of it and luckily lost mainly the software and not many of the photos as they were in the last partition.
