I went from slightly disappointed to very very happy… and then I did it all over again.
Let me explain.
Late winter, early spring I got the news that TESSERACT was about to play my favorite venue in my home town in June. Yeay!! When I checked my calendar and saw it was during Copenhell I was pretty disappointed. A few months later Copenhell announced that TESSERACT was playing there as well. Order in the universe was restored.
That was the first time… Here is the second one…
I shot many photos during their performance and decided to use my crappy non-brand SD Card and shoot the rest of the concert in JPEG. The reasoning behind this was to save some space and I felt I already got the photos I wanted. But no no no…
Daniel Tompkins had other plans and decided to jump into the audience to do some crowd surfing. I was standing in the perfect spot and got some great shots.
Later when I was about to transfer the photos from my camera to the computer I got a “Read Error” message! I was able to transfer a few shots but it looked like the rest of them were corrupted!
I did a search for “SD card photo recovery” and found some data recovery software called PhotoRec. It looked like it would be able to recover the last photos…
The software is working as I write this and it actually looks like it manages to recover the photos… and it also appears that I did shot some of the photos in RAW!
Okay… enough of that. The concert was fantastic and loved seeing them for the second time.
