Well, it seems my luck with Ronda may just have run out.

I have taken meticulous precautions to back up all my photography on this trip with multiple redundant copies on SD cards, my laptop hard drive and online storage. But it seems that the card I was using when shooting the Corrida Goyesca is corrupt. No matter how many precautions I take, I can’t do anything about a card that is already fucked when I’m writing photos to it.

I used three cards to shoot the bullfight, with about two hundred peripheral photos on two, and about five hundred of the real material on the bad card.

I haven’t forsaken hope yet. Recovery software does exist, so I’ll put this card away until I get back to Sydney and then do some forensic repair work.

I will just seethe quietly until then.
