I had been taking pictures for about 3 years — and I mean LOTS of pictures — when my hard drive crashed not once, but twice. And of course, I hadn’t been backing them up as often as I should. I lost many many photos and it was heartbreaking. But every once in a while I find some that I posted somewhere else or saved in some random place, and it is like finding a piece of treasure. The three pics of Japanese maples I took on Cape Cod are today’s treasure.
