“Stupidity is the same as evil if you judge by the results.”
― Margaret Atwood
I have a minimum of two backups of my work. A number of people (not photographers) are amazed that I “waste” my money on such things as backup hard drives. They have this magical belief about technology. Nothing bad can happen.
In the last two days one of the two external hard drives that held every picture of The Hudson River that I have taken in the last three years failed and the other one is failing rapidly. Yes I still have the originals on a drive but I have basically spent the last two days desperately backing everything up again before that one fails as well.
The Atwood quote above concerns a different situation that someone I love is dealing with.
All that is to say it is time for a picture from the iPhone I took this around 7:30 Sunday morning in Kings Park New York.
The building is an abandoned Mental Hospital. Seems very appropriate to the situation to me.
