Sports/ Photo Hunter


The kids in blue vs the kids in white

This week's Photo Hunter challenge: sports.

Earlier this year East Gwillimbury hosted a soccer tournament. What? You missed it? Here's one of the highlights.

Actually I had several much better shots but last weekend I accidentally deleted most of the photos I had taken between May and early September of this year. Last night I purchased an external hard drive for storing my photos so I'm hoping I NEVER, NEVER, NEVER lose so many photos like that again!

It has happened to me more than once. I purchased an external drive, too.

>an external hard drive for storing my photos
Good move. I'm in the market for a second external hard drive, because I live in fear something will happen to my first one, which holds the only copy of many of my photos.

Great (mild) action shot - more like a slice of life of kids.

My sympathies! Fat FInger Delete, the kids call it!
However, as I still sift through my late mother's photos (e.g., her dead fiance, WW 2), I wonder who will want them later?!!!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Sorry that you lost some photos, EG. Glad you now have an external drive. We have one ---and hopefully because of that we won't ever lose anything.

Your soccer picture is cute. One of my best friends is a referee for soccer. She loves doing the little girls' games. They are just so cute.

We are on our way to Hendersonville today to check on G's parents. Then we have company coming tomorrow. Fun Fun!!!!

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

Oh no!! Losing all those photos would make physically sick I think. I really feel bad for you.
Neat soccer pic. Little kids love to run around. MB

Wow!! A bunch of mini footballers are cute! Nice one there. :)

Oh I'm glad these kids team is sponsored. Great snap.

Photo Cache said...

btw, i too have an external drive and to make me feel a lot secure, i also burn dvd/cd, just for my own peace of mind :)

Cezar and Léia said...

Is the referee a girl? Oh, she must have had a hard time with the youngsters...
God bless you!

I almost lost a bunch, but thank God they went to the trash bin first and I could restore them. I was so sick at heart till I found that.

Janie said...

Cute kids. My 3 kids all played soccer, so I spent a lot of time on field sidelines.
Too bad about losing the photos. I've had that experience, too.

Great shot of young fotballers. Good move on buying the external drive! Happy weekend

Colin Campbell said...

My friend in IT told me that you should back up in at least three locations. We are getting there. Heartbreaking to lose so many photos. I have a soccer theme too. Great photo.

Jacob said...

That's awful, EG! Did you try to find them in your recycle bin...they should still be there unless it was already full, but even so it would have knocked out older stuff and kept the newer photos.

Like most folks, I've lost photos, too. So now, when I download a set of photographs, I copy them immediately to another internal hard drive, then to an external hard drive and shortly thereafter to a CD/DVD.

I like this shot a lot...it is not only very colorful but captures well, I think the excitement and energy of the moment!

Carver said...

That's a great shot for the theme. Sorry about the loss of photographs. That's terrible.

YTSL said...

Sorry to hear about your accidentally deleting photos -- nightmare! Love soccer -- playing (well, years ago!) and watching it!

George said...

I was sorry to hear about your lost pictures. As Betsy said, we each have an external hard disk and a program to automatically back up everything on our computers.

kaye said...

Kids are great fun, on and off the field. so sad about your pictures.

life ramblings said...

sorry to hear about your deleted photos. that's awful.

that's a lovely shot for the theme.

Shoshana said...

I wish my kids take soccer...but they don't. I've tried bribery.

karen said...

i had an external hard drive too, too bad i deleted that one... argh!

anyway, you got pretty nice pic of the game =) happy weekend!

Randi said...

Nice shot. I love watching young footballsplayer playing.
I feel sorry that you lost the photographs.

travelingsuep said...

Sorry for your loss. I store on external, my comp (which is getting sooo slow I need a 2nd drive), and I upload the best to flickr so they are stored virtually.

It's a good pic you have left; the kids look so little

Ash said...

Interesting photo of the kids!

Sorry to hear about your photo/loss. Hope you can retrieve them.

Hootin' Anni said...

Hope you can get your lost photos back some how.

Nice sports photo!!!

It's HERE for your viewing pleasure

Yikes, been there, done that - two years worth of my first digital pictures. We learn our lessons too late.

I find it odd to see "Lowes" on soccer uniforms in Canada. I know my family first refused to shop at Home Depot(why wouldn't you shop at Canadian Tire?) and then Costco. So now Lowes has crossed the border. Sort of sad.

We hate the American invasion, but we open the door wide open and welcome them in.

Sandy said...

Great photo..sorry about your others..
Mine's up, too...

I just love seeing little ones rushing around in their over-size kit, like little ants swarming after the ball.

So sorry to hear about your deletion misfortune. I live in fear...

gengen said...

It happened to me many times when my computer was not working everything was gone. Anyway, like your sports shot...

Alice Audrey said...

That is such a pity. This picture is fantastic. I love all the attitude from the players. Well, at least you have an external drive now.

Kim said...

Cute. Brings back memories of when my boys were that age.

chubskulit said...

ouch, it happened to me twice already and I hate it! Hope you don't lose anymore photos!

Nice shot!

This is my first time joining photo hunt,hope you can take a peek on my Athlete Spirit entry

AB said...

Great shot. The hands on the hips seems typical of kids playing soccer at this age.
