The Last Images Rescued from My iPhone Before it Died

Door (M.A. Reilly, 3.12.12)
The last images that I rescued after my iPhone fell into a lake this morning are represented in this video.  I was out making images at a botanical garden this morning.  On my way home I stopped by a lake near my home and walked out on a very narrow dock. I wanted to shift from taking images with my iPhone to using my Nikon.  As I went to put the phone in my pocket it slipped out of my hand and fell into the lake.

Need I tell you how cold lake water is in March?  Well I rescued the phone, went home, and was able to download the images.  The phone died after the download.

Here's a look:)

  1. Fittingly elegaic, and yet with hints of rebirth. Lovely. RIP, iPhone.

    When I saw the one of the dock, my monkey mind filled in, "A dock to nowhere."

    1. It feels that way, especially when fog sets in.

  2. Oh no! Hope you didn't lose too many pictures. I have heard putting a phone in a bowl of dry rice sometimes will help get all of the moisture out. Glad you didn't fall in!

    1. I lost no pictures. It cost me a bit of $ and time:) Had to get a new phone as the moisture ruined the phone part of the phone.

  3. You may be able to save your phone. Put it in a bowl of rice, and put that bowl in the refridgerator (but not in the coldest part of the fridge, you don't want it to freeze) and then wait 2 days.

    Great pictures! :)

    1. Thanks for the advice David, but I got a new one. The phone went on the phone and it got worse throughout the day.
