photo panic

While on our trip I was downloading all of our photos on Jeff's Government laptop. So now they are all stuck on his high security hard drive.
Grrr!!! I have this fear they will be forever encrypted and won't come off. I am kind of nuts about downloading photos the day I take them.
I have only been able to get two days off so far. I have been looking at the ones I have all day over and over. These were taken in Rota Spain where we spent most of our time. This was 9:30 at night and we would stand on the beach and watch that amazing sun set in the ocean.
The lighting was a photographers dream.
OK back to giving dirty looks to that stinkin high security lap top!

Mercy, I hope you are able to get all of your pictures!! Did you delete them from your camera? So glad you are back safe and sound. Reality is kind of hard, though. When do the girls start school?

this pictures are darling! Caroline is such a riot with her great big smile, so cute! I hope you're able to get all your pictures back, that's so frustrating!

That would make me crazy too! I hope you can retrieve them soon.

This lighting definitely looks like a photographer's dream! These pictures are great. I especially love the shadow picture with writing of Annie Kate!

That is a really good rule of thumb to down load them the day you take them. I get buried in weeks of photos. The pictures you took are amazing!

I can' wait to see the rest!

Oh gosh, what beautiful pictures! Your kids are some of the best subjects I see in all the pictures. Their fun and vibrant personalities come through in every picture. And what an opportunity to get them in such beautiful places. Thanks for sharing. Good Luck getting the rest of them to download for you.
