Lost Photos Recovered - Thank you all

Following my tale of stupidity, where I accidentally deleted all the photos from my Nikon with the wide angle lens last week, dozens of you wrote in telling me either that a camera shop could probably recover them for me, or that there is software available which I could use to do it myself.

Thank you to you all of you for writing in, and in particular to Philip Price, the great professional photographer in High Street. Philip had two sets of the recovery software and so he kindly gave me one of the installation CDs. As a result I was able to recover all but two of the deleted photos. The two I lost were not important ones - I could actually view them as thumbnail images but could not save them to my network as the files had become corrupted. As they are all part of 'yesterday's news' now rather than current issues, and as I covered most of them in last week's issue anyway with photos taken with my other cameras and with some supplied, I shall show the recovered photos below with captions. They appear in the order in which I took them.

I am particularly pleased to have been able to recover the photos of Steve and Barbara Szollosi as I was unable to run that story last week due to loss of those photos. Although Deb Harper was able to send me a photo of the Prince skittles team from the finals last week at the Plough Inn, I was unable to show the winners of the final, so it is good that I can cover both winners and runners up this week.

It was a pleasure to be allowed to interview best selling novelist, Phil Rickman when he visited Ross Library on Friday, 14th March. Phil has written eighteen books in his current series. The places in his books are largely based in this area, as well as one or two of his charcters.

The photographs above were taken at the John Kyrle High School X-Factor finals on Saturday, 15th March. The whole evening was an excellent display of the talents of the pupils there. I don't think the judges found it easy to make their final decisions.

Belated Golden Wedding Anniversary greetings go to Steve and Barbara Szollosi, pictured in the two preceding photographs. Steve and Barbara were married on 15th March 1958 and celebrated 50 years on to the day at a surprise party organized for them by their youngest daughter, Mandy.

I used to work for Steve and Barbara when they ran an engineering factory in Station Approach, Ross-on-Wye and they were lovely to work for.

In the first of their photographs you will see Steve and Barbara with their family at the party.
