Stolen Memories

20100324_Stolen MemoriesA recent article in the Toronto Sun Camera Thief Steals Memories details the sad story of a couple who had their camera and all of their photos, including five additional memory cards, stolen while they were in the hospital for the birth of their newborn son. I have two recommendations based on this story:

  1. Back-up all photos.
  2. Do not keep the back-up with your camera.

Feel free to share your experiences here.
