I had an anxious hour yesterday, thinking I had lost all the shots from when we migrated to Japan in October 2007 until the end of that year.
However, after searching all the hard-drives and a load of DVD backups, I had a brain-wave and opened the case of my PC tower. Lo and behold, there was the offending article: a hard-drive that used to be external [when the power supply died I put it inside the PC] with its power cable unplugged.
Plugged it back in and all of 2007's shots were back...
It's good to re-visit old RAW files. When I shot this, on December 4th 2007, I'd had my first DSLR for a month. I'd just bought the 80-200mm f/2.8 ED IF lens and this was pretty much the first trip with it: a bus trip up to Fuji's Fifth Station and the lakes around Hakone, with my good friend the composer Joseph Curiale.
This particular shot was taken from the cable-car coming back down from Mount Komagatake.
Great to see these shots again. Processing it now over what I knew how to get out of a NIkon RAW file five and half years ago was a nice benchmark for how far I've come.
