Long Shadows

Long Shadows at the end of a beautiful summer day in Hoboken. This was shot just minutes after the previous shot.

This was 100% processed in Lightroom...no HDR...I don't have a clue how to do HDR. No add on filters or plug-ins only Lightroom's default tools.

For a much larger more detailed view go here.

A few weeks ago my external LaCie HD started to show signs of failure. The LaCie was the drive where I kept all of my working photos. I managed to get everything backed up onto another drive and shortly after that the LaCie bit the dust...whew! At any rate I was not happy with my current back-up system. I tried one of those online services but it was going to take over 200 days to back everything up...nope not gonna work! So after debating for the past year or so I decided to get a DROBO. I received it a couple of days ago from B&H and set it up with 2 1T drives. In a few short hours all my important stuff was moved onto the DROBO and now I have redundancy on a working drive with an expandable capacity and a separate external as a 3rd back-up which I can stick in a fireproof safe. I think I have it covered now.

The DROBO seems to be working superbly and it was easy to install and get up and running. It sits nicely on my desk and I am very happy with it so far. I suggest that anyone with storage and back-up concerns look into this little device.

There are no RAID configurations to figure out, just pop in the SATA drives and go! You need at least 2 to start. If one starts to fail DROBO will tell you and you just pop out bad one and replace it with a new one and that's pretty much it. If it starts to get full DROBO will let you know and all you need to do to expand it is either add another SATA drive to one of the 2 remaining drive bays or replace the smallest drive with a larger one. All this while you are still working. Awesome!
