The hanami spirit

We've just about come to the end of hanami (cherry blossom viewing) season here in Tokyo. It's traditional to go out to a major park on the weekend and sit under the pink- and white-blossomed cherry trees with your friends while enjoying a picnic lunch. Drinking yourself silly is optional but encouraged.

I went to Shinjuku Gyoen on Sunday and had a great time. But my 1GB memory card decided to get its file structure corrupted, so all the pictures I took there are trapped in techno-limbo until I can figure out how to rescue them. (They show up in the camera, but I can't download them to my computer.)

Anyway, here's a phone-camera picture I took of office workers enjoying lunch outside last Friday:

In a way, I like this picture even better than the weekend ones, since it shows Japan's easygoing hanami spirit conquering its rigidly formal business culture.

do you "safley remove you hardware" by disconnecting it before you pull the memory card out of you computer, if you don't that would be the cause (i would bet), though I have no way of helping figure out how to get the info out of the card.

My camera was running out of battery power during the download.... so I cancelled the download and removed the camera. Cancelling the download is probably what screwed it up.
