A Sad Day For Gypsy

Have you ever had a week where everything went wrong? And I don't mean horrible things like death or sickness but little things that just make you want to take a bath with a cosmopolitan. I did neither of those last things but if you've seen my blog today you can see why I might want to.

ALL of my images before my last post are gone. ZIP.

 Everyone may know this but I did not know that if I wanted to free up space on google-plus I would be freeing all the images from this blog away to never never land. 

I deleted a lot of photos in google-plus not knowing that picasso and google-plus are one in the same and I unknowingly deleted the host of my images. I thought they were in two different places. I also deleted all my phone photos by deleting google plus. Google and I are no longer friends at all.

Apparently others have done the same thing according to my web searches and I think all of us should get together and cry on each other's shoulders. Three years of photos. It makes me want to alternately punch a bag of rocks and sob and eat pudding. 

So bear with me while I try to find all the pictures and re-upload them in these next few weeks. On two computers. Unless someone has a miracle for me or a way to get them back (the google+ trash has been emptied)!

New posts will continue as usual and I'm thankful it's just my photos, but I do feel sad about all my older posts without pictures.

Gypsy Slow Down will make it. 

Gypsy Slow Down


  1. wow...that's no fun at all! i'd be beyond frustrated as well!

  2. I'm sorry that this happened my friend. Luckily there are millions of photo opportunities for you in the future! I know that doesn't make it better and I'm not trying to be that annoying eternal optimistic sort but I know you'll bless us with many wonderful pictures in the years to come. That's one of the reasons we love your blog!

  3. I'm so sorry. I think you are very gifted in your photography and I did love you pictures. I can only image all the time you had invested in those. Sometimes I find all these things we're suppose to be knowing in the media world extremely confusing.

  4. Oh no!! That is so frustrating. I am not a fan at ALL of the way Google has basically combined everything into Google+, it really sucks and makes everything really confusing when it comes to what you can and can't delete without deleting EVERYTHING.

    When you say you emptied the trash, are you talking about the actual Google+ trash or your computer's trash bin?

  5. I am so sorry! That's Google+ for ya. I hope you get back up & running. I wondered what happened. Blessings

  6. Yeah, I found that out a while ago.I don't use Google+ and it still happened. It's a bummer and would be nice if Google warned about this.

  7. Oh, Claire, I am so sorry. You must feel so devastated. I hope you can upload them all without a problem. Take care.
