bad luck about the blackberry… good luck about michael stipe! wow!it all evens out. :)
February 3, 2008 at 10:07 am
If you haven’t used the memory card much after finding out it was corrupted, you may be in luck still. Program called “Undelete Plus” does wonders at times, so give your luck a shot.
February 3, 2008 at 10:08 am
sorry to hear about your misfortune, sart! ;_;
February 3, 2008 at 10:11 am
You should try using some photo recovery software on your card as soon as possible. They’re actually pretty reliable at getting pictures back
February 3, 2008 at 10:14 am
Re-format the card in the camera, down load Phototorescue 3 or higher and run the cad through the data rescue, you will not save all the images, but you may save many!
February 3, 2008 at 10:23 am
Everybody please ignore the comment above, if you format your card it will be much harder if not next to impossible to retrieve any pictures… Just take to card to your IT specialist or maybe even a data specialist, they’ll know what to do with it and retrieve your precious pictures.

Sorry to hear about that! Let’s just say things need to go up and down like that. No sweet without the sour ;)Take care!
February 3, 2008 at 10:41 am
Try this…buy some film, D76, Fixer and stop bath. Oh and lose the BBerry (you aready did!) and try the IPhone.
February 3, 2008 at 10:51 am
that bites, so sorry. i’ve enjoyed your latest series of entries tremendously though. hopefully good fortune continues to be on your side. best of luck today!
February 3, 2008 at 11:00 am
Sorry about you bad luck. They say bad things come in 3s. I’m sure everything will work out in your favor.
I love coming to your blog and viewing your pictures. Thanks for sharing with us.
February 3, 2008 at 11:18 am
So sorry for your bad luck!

*ouch* about your blackberry..
hope the coming weeks will be better!
February 3, 2008 at 11:39 am
Hope this cheers you up.I LOVE, LOVE your blog.It’s really inspiring. Great pictures. And what I love about it, everyone is chica at their own right.
so Thank You! Wish to meet you someday in NY :)
February 3, 2008 at 11:41 am
Oh, I do hope you are able to rescue the photos – esp REM. You must have been SO pleased to get the shot and even better that he is aware of your blog is fantastic.I’m heading to NYC in another week and am hoping to swing by Danziger Projects. Keep up the good work – it will all swing back toward productive and pleasant.
February 3, 2008 at 11:51 am
Sorry about your bad run.
February 3, 2008 at 12:00 pm
I love when you are heavy on men’s. I have dragged my husband to the computer to show him the gorgeous and/or original men’s looks here and we went shopping in December and, I have to say, he looks more stylish, original and handsome than he did when we married over 20 years ago!
Keep on keepin’ on!
Luck changes. May you be blessed this week.
February 3, 2008 at 12:02 pm
You don’t need perfect luck, just continue what you’re doing. I still marvel at the simplicity of the blog and its bewitching beauty.
February 3, 2008 at 12:06 pm
From Massachusetts…. sorry to hear about the blackberry -
February 3, 2008 at 12:12 pm
Sart, these things unfortunately happen. Don’t let these trifles dishearten you. Go ahead, after all, tomorrow is another day.
February 3, 2008 at 12:54 pm
sorry for the bad lucki am anxious to see the picks from New York Fashion Weekcheer up¡¡
February 3, 2008 at 1:11 pm
Sorry to be off topic (I would offer you advice, but my technological knowledge is non existent), but I was wondering if you were coming to London for Fashion Week this season? I see why London isn’t attracting the big guns; all our more established labels move to NY as soon as they get some recognition, but what most of the magazines and stores are missing out on anyway is that fresh, unique vibe which London so fantastically represents. So yup I’m just trying to say it would be really cool if you could come for Fashion Week sometime…hope to see you herep.s and I hope that the rest of New York Fashion Week is a bit more lucky for you
February 3, 2008 at 1:17 pm
With a bunch of bad luck comes a bunch of good luck….so watch out for it! I wish you all the best…and go Giants!!!
February 3, 2008 at 1:18 pm
whoa ! no, DO NOT reformat the card ! just use some recovery software, and do what the instructions say.
February 3, 2008 at 1:26 pm
Dear Sart,sad to hear about your misfortune. Hope this was all of it and that it starts getting better from now on. So far this year has started with so many bad news… wonder what is going on;)Good luck!
February 3, 2008 at 1:42 pm
I’m so sorry! Hopefully you’ll have a really good day sometime soon to make up for it!
February 3, 2008 at 1:44 pm
I was going to say the same thing re the data recovery. If you use a mac, I recommend Photorescue Wizard. It’s saved me a few times.
I would not reformat first, as Allen suggested. Run the program of your choice, pull off all the files.
Then, run through the images, when you are OK with the files, reformat. I would not re-use the card, they are so cheap you can just buy a new one. In my experience the card is probably going to corrupt again.
In the future – don’t fill up the card to the max, cards seem to corrupt more easily when they are packed to the max (again, in my experience, doesn’t matter what card or camera I use) so I tend leave quite a lot of space on cards and make sure that put the pictures on my computer at the end of each day…
I hope that helps.
August 4, 2014 at 4:50 pm
Thanks for that Tip Mel
I have noted it for the future
February 3, 2008 at 2:20 pm
must have been really painful to see your blackberry drop like that!But a terrible day usually means a really good day is to come!
pretty kitty publishing
February 3, 2008 at 2:25 pm
Having just recently purchased my first smartphone – a BlackBerry Pearl – I empathize with your loss …
Regarding Michael Stipe – Hey, it’s still cool knowing that he reads your blog!
Better luck next time …
February 3, 2008 at 2:43 pm
am i the first one to say this? Everybody hurts…. sometimes….
poor sart. :)that would’ve been fun to see what michael stipe was wearing
February 3, 2008 at 2:54 pm
do not reformat the card! do not write to the card by using it. get photorescue (even the demo will let you see if you can get the images back).
February 3, 2008 at 2:56 pm
Everybody hurts, sometimes… Just hope you dont loose your religion.
February 3, 2008 at 3:11 pm
oh that is tough, but from the sounds of the comments above you might be able to sort out the memory card problems
February 3, 2008 at 3:13 pm
Well I think Michael Stipe said it best.
If you’re on your own in this life, the days and nights are long,when you think you’ve had too much of this life to hang on.
Well, everybody hurts sometimes,everybody cries. And everybody hurts sometimes.And everybody hurts sometimes. So, hold on, hold on.
February 3, 2008 at 3:29 pm
i too have had one of those days. It must mean another good streak is coming your way soon. Will look forward to some great photos of the ladies!

February 3, 2008 at 4:55 pm
Ouch! So sorry to hear about your bout of bad luck! If it makes you feel better, all the shots you’ve posted over the last week have been really excellent!
February 3, 2008 at 5:00 pm
i can’t wait to see what you find at the women’s collections…hopefully this bad luck will be short lived.Although I have to say watching a blackberry tumble down an elevator shaft sounds pretty rough. Sorry about that.
And indeed, Go Giants!
February 3, 2008 at 5:20 pm
Go Giants!My brother-in-law is a huge fan too.
February 3, 2008 at 5:44 pm
i think you mean go patriots!
February 3, 2008 at 5:57 pm
So sorry about the Blackberry! I dropped mine on a concrete parking lot and the trackball actually CAME OUT. I just pushed it back in and luckily, all I needed to do was restart it in order for it to get working again.
February 3, 2008 at 6:18 pm
Ohhhh it sucks!!! If Michael reads this blog then there’s a big chance you run into him again ;)

February 3, 2008 at 6:25 pm
while you haven’t formatted or reshot the info is probably still there. It may still be there if you have formatted it, but more likely to have gone. Formatting erases the memory. Photo rescue is genius, don’t worry if your images dont show up on the preview on your mac, mine didn’t and it was still ok.
Robert Adams wrote, and I loosely paraphrase, that being a photographer is almost entirely losing the best photo you’ve ever taken, breaking very expensive equipment and falling over in public. Good luck, hope you get the photos back.
February 3, 2008 at 6:27 pm
Good advices from your friends/fans. Cheer up! Keep my fingers crossed. Main thing is: your blog is good is good is good.
February 3, 2008 at 6:31 pm
DONT FORMAT THE CARD!
as long as you haven’t formatted or reshot the info should still be on the file. Photorescue is genius, don’t worry if the preview shows blank on your mac, mine did but I still got my photos back ok.
GOOD LUCK Amy
I have probably posted this three times in an attempt to get this to work. Am now attempting to see if being anonymous works better. sorry, I’m really not advertising photorescue or anything, just lost some photos recently and still reeling with excitement that I got them back.
February 3, 2008 at 6:47 pm
sart, i’m sorry you’ve had a horrid couple days… hope the sun will shine more brightly tomorrow, in all sorts of ways!demain est un autre jour… and i continue to look forward to each new thing on your blogthank you -dlae
February 3, 2008 at 7:21 pm
February 3, 2008 at 7:39 pm
oh wow what a brutal couple of days. many hearts go out to you.
you don’t hear about elevator shafts much in real life; sounds like some especially bad mojo. have you angered gypsies lately?
February 3, 2008 at 7:40 pm
no worries, menswear is big these days, anyhoo.
February 3, 2008 at 7:44 pm
Sorry to hear about the bad luck, hang in there!
February 3, 2008 at 7:58 pm
I feel your pain, Sart. Hang in there! I’ll bet the next photos you snap are even more brilliant than before!
February 3, 2008 at 8:02 pm
You poor thing. I think you need a hug. – hug -

bummer! i saw you at alexander wang & i was really looking forward to see what you got from the crowd there! ;(perhaps you’ll be at phillip lim?? more luck to you this week!
February 3, 2008 at 8:41 pm
Sorry Sart. That’s rough.
February 3, 2008 at 9:05 pm
I’ve been looking through your archives, and it’s funny to note that once upon a time (which was hardly long ago) each picture you posted received only a couple of comments, whereas now you get dozens and dozens.
And I think I’ve discovered why you are so successful. It’s as simple as this: you are passionate about what you do. It shows in every picture, every caption, every post you make.
And that, in itself, is more inspiring than you can imagine.
February 3, 2008 at 9:08 pm
Sometimes it’s good to let things go that you really loved.
February 3, 2008 at 9:11 pm
Harsh! But don’t worry: Many good things ahead. At least you got to find out more about your celebrity following right? Keep it up. You’re bound to lose a blackberry or a day’s work here and there. It’s all part of a larger and so far totally amazing process!
(BTW there’s something wrong with the comments. I’m typing this into an uncharacteristically ugly popup window…)
February 3, 2008 at 9:23 pm
I am a big REM fan too! So sorry to hear about your bad luck, maybe Mr. Stipe will read your post and send replacements?

I’ve come across a few tempermental CF cards in my past, and know the corruption problem all too well. This RescuePro software has saved me every time.
February 3, 2008 at 10:46 pm
aw, sorry to hear about all thisi hope things turn up from this point on! i would have loved seeing that photo of stipe :(have a good week sart!
February 3, 2008 at 10:48 pm
Not that I believe in astrology, but when mercury (or is it mars?) is retrograde (whatever that means) everything electronic or technical just goes to crap.And it’ll keep happening until February 17, apparently. :|
February 3, 2008 at 11:09 pm
Yay for Giants!!! Woo hoo!!
February 3, 2008 at 11:21 pm
damn what a day!!!!
i suspect something spectacular is coming soon that will make up for your “loses”
i like when you are “men’s heavy” we see women’s fashion ALL THE TIME in our daily lives…so the more men’s you can have to inspire, the better.
thanks again for your site
btw, you still have not given me your opinion on alligator shoes.

Ouh, I feel so bad for you! It´s weird how you get so small amount of comments when probably millions of people read your blog everyday from all around the world! This is an awesome blogg and you do exactly what I´d like to do too, take pictures of stylish people in the best cities ever!

PhotoRescue PhotoRescue Photorescue. Don’t shoot on the card any further until you have used PhotoRescue.

Michael Stipe embodies playful and curious androgyny. He is a vocal powerhaus and an elusive style icon.
Love him & REM (especially their early catalogue).
I once asked if I could take his photo when I ran into him by himself, but he said no! So, lucky you for getting a snap of him… even if it didn’t work out.
Kinda perfect that. Some moments aren’t meant to be solidified in a photo.
February 4, 2008 at 3:10 am
ouch… i’m sorry you had a rough couple of days.. but it’s sure to turn around, it always does.:)

sorry to hear you had such a rubbish day, I just love your blog, so many bad things in one weekend! Surely that means only good things to come.
February 4, 2008 at 5:55 am
Sorry to hear what happened to you. Those days with serial accidents are familiar to all of us! At least you have got support from people who care(like me) and I truly wish you good luck on everything from now on!
Really love your work!
February 4, 2008 at 6:45 am
Michael Stipe isn’t the only one from the little town of Athens, GA that reads your blog! Keep it up, Sart!
February 4, 2008 at 7:33 am
I am staff photographer at a large daily paper, I have run data rescue over about 50 cards as people come in with crashes. It tends to work best after a re-format. The key is not to shoot a single new frame on a crashed card. I have no idea what the instruction booklet will say, but in real, time, that is what has always recovered the most clean data.
If the thought of this makes you nervous, run it before reformatting, and then run it again after reformatting and compare the data that was recovered.
Every crash is different depending on what made the card crash in the first place. It is always a gamble, do you get everything back? Sometimes everything less the one frame that cause the directory to go bad, etc etc. Worse case scenario, all the images look like a kaleidoscope. That is a bad crash.
Once you run it over, and reformat the card, you can 99.99 percent of the time, the card is fine and can be reused, just test it once before shooting another job.
Generally speaking, the card is not what is shot, it is the directory files.
Good luck, hope to see an image from that shoot on the site soon.
February 4, 2008 at 7:43 am
Good Luck this week!
February 4, 2008 at 10:06 am
Oh my gosh, the Blackberry falling – I can feel your pain!
February 4, 2008 at 10:17 am
No wonder I like your blog so much! I have loved REM for years. The fact that my husband knew and liked the band is the only reason I agreed to go out with him. I do hope all the photo rescue tips from the other commenters is able to help and you can restore the picture. I’d love to see your photo of Michael Stipe.
February 4, 2008 at 11:08 am
It sucks! Last week I found myself crying the whole night…I had just lost ALL the pics in my pc, due to hardware crash. I’m recovering little by little -unfortunately, no luck with the pc – but it still hurts because I feel like a part of my life has gone to pieces…Anyway, as lauren said…Let’s keep it up!:)
February 4, 2008 at 11:51 am
so sorry about the blackberry…and the photo card…maybe you can “stage” a new photo shoot with michael.
February 4, 2008 at 3:02 pm
well, at least the Giants won! it could’ve been worse, sart, it could’ve been worse…
February 4, 2008 at 4:07 pm
sorry about your luck. i was there on friday myself. i could only withstand the rain for about 30 minutes. it was too cold! i took a few action photos but that was about it. i was hoping to run into you to meet you but i heard you were gone by the time i got there on saturday…! oh well maybe next year!
February 4, 2008 at 4:33 pm
I LOVE REM!!!! Michael Stipe is the greatest. And I agree with Lauren, I’m a faithful reader of your blog from a small rural town in South Carolina!
February 4, 2008 at 4:39 pm
Hey Sart -
All is not lost! Take it to a pro store, where they’ll charge you a bit to recover the photos. That’s one option if you’re desperate to get the photos back, and fast. If you want to invest in a photo recovery software, that’ll work too, and you can do it at home by yourself!
February 4, 2008 at 5:38 pm
Aw, I’m sorry. I hope you get your photos back (and maybe your Blackberry incident will be a good excuse to get a new iPhone!) ;)Michael Stipe is beautiful; the fact that he admires your work would be enough to brighten up anyone’s day!
February 4, 2008 at 9:15 pm
How tragic!! Sorry for your streak of crap luck. But don’t worry about having too many mens’ images. Your blog for me (as a woman) is all about shapes and colors, more than gender specific fashion. A beautiful outfit is a beautiful outfit.
February 4, 2008 at 10:00 pm
Sorry about the blackberry. I lost my mda and treo twice in 3 years. I know the feeling. Ouch. all my contacts gone.
February 5, 2008 at 3:08 am
REM changed my life!
as a 10 year old kid this band really made an impression on me and introduced me to the world of ‘alt-rock.’
Michael was my first singer crush.He’s a phenomenal artist as well as one snazzy dresser. He gets sexier by the year!
February 5, 2008 at 5:23 am
so…did ya get the pics back?
February 5, 2008 at 8:42 am
Hey guy! Ask to a SpeciaList of digital images. Maybe your shots are not definitely lost.There are many methods to take the original pictures from a damaged memory card.Do not worry it is possible!

February 5, 2008 at 8:59 pm
guess it is all a matter of perspective. the rain made me so happy on friday. i stood in the middle of tompkins square park taking pictures of trees and puddles for an hour. but i had the luxury of not having to be anywhere or do anything.
sorry about your blackberry (mercury *planet of communication* just went retrograde). now you have an excuse to get an iphone… att is not so bad.

i see michael stipe in the town i live in pretty often. you should try to make it down here (athens, ga)if you have a reason to.
February 6, 2008 at 1:44 pm
Sometimes when we win some… we lose some. You busted your blackberry, but your team won the superbowl. We all try to take the good and the bad in stride. Congrats on MR. REM reading your blog- that’s huge… maybe you could inspire a song with one of your pix:)
February 7, 2008 at 1:13 pm
Oh Sart! So sorry to hear about the Blackberry. I left my cellphone in the dressing room of Scoop the other day, and just about LOST it. Luckily they had it for me though.. whew, close call. I hope you’re having brighter days again!
February 7, 2008 at 11:31 pm
sorry to hear, but keep up the good work

February 12, 2008 at 10:40 pm
A horrible day, Sart, for sure. As a Michael Stipe fan, I grieve the loss of his image more than the awful loss of your Blackberry.
On the other hand, … this could be your opportunity to get the wildly superior iPhone (the 16gB model just came out).
You can enjoy other phones, and yes, even the Blackberry is versatile, … but if you’re like me, you will discover a torrid and ecstatic and passionate love for your iPhone!
February 13, 2008 at 6:15 pm
Michael Stipe used to date a friend’s mom!
I don’t know if you will see this or not, because it’s on an older entry, but your shots are great.
February 14, 2008 at 12:15 am
Sart, I am so sorry about the wacky series of events…and the blackberry…I have nightmares about this…All the best to you and please know that we all love what you do and you inspire me and make the world a better place…
February 19, 2008 at 10:49 pm
Mercury AND Saturn Retrograde. Can’t be helped. Bummer about the Blackberry & CF card.
February 28, 2008 at 12:07 am
The thought of losing my pictures makes me sick to my stomach. I empathize.
Please make a stop in Athens, Georgia.
I can promise you, Michael Stipe will be hanging around.Also, the fantastic fashion here makes my life happy. So many of the girls and guys read your fabulous blog.
I also once dropped my keys down an elevator shaft. After I got over the shock of such odds, I grieved 15 more floors of hearing them drop.
Adore the blog.
