When NOT if!
How is your DAM? (Digital Asset Management Plan) at a most basic level this is a backup strategy for your pictures.
I have just backed up my pictures, all 857Gb of them taken over a 12 year period to a 3Tb Ext HDD using Good Sync software as part of an on-going strategy. With a USB 3.0 connection the copying of all my pictures took 25 hours! See www.GoodSync.com for an easy to use software solution costing £20.
Cloud backup of raw files is not viable due to extremely slow upload speeds and the cost of transfer if you do not have unlimited broadband which will be highly prohibitive. The actual cost of the storage with Fast Glacier is very cheap if you can get your pictures / documents there. See fastglacier.com This is a good solution for documents.
The featured picture above is another shot from my trip last week to Sidmouth in Devon. I don’t know why but the blurry guy in the foreground reminds me of John Lennon – may be its the glasses? This picture works for me because of the back lighting and the composition. I love the blurry figure and the two figures in the distance on the right and left hand sides that balance each other. A real bonus is the light coming through the shelter windows.
