In today’s blog post I wanted to talk about something entirely unrelated to sport or photography. I’m currently half way through writing a blog about the best data backup strategy for photographers, or really anyone with critical data, but lets be honest, it’s a dry subject and not all that interesting. So I’ve put a pause on that one for now because I think there’s a special group of people that deserve our gratitude.
