Can anyone recommend some picture heavy resources of the Camino?

Walked (2012)
Howdy y'all. I walked the Camino back in 2012. Did the 'traditional' route of SJPP to Santiago then Muxia and Finisterre. Had a *wonderful* time and it was a tremendous experience that has been a positive influence in my life and was just about everything one might want from their Camino.

But there was a giant snag on the way. I took so many pictures that I had to put some on a flash drive, and then that flash drive corrupted at some point along the way. Roughly about 21 days worth (the rest of the trip did survive on another flash drive, thankfully).

I'd tried everything to retrieve any data off that thing but to no avail and after the last attempt the company I sent it to lost it. Which is kinda whatever at this point.

So I was wondering if there were any picture heavy blogs or posts or resources on kind of a day by day blog that someone could direct me to? I found a couple but they all seem to kind of peter out around the first week.

I just want some pictures to save and jog my memory of certain things. Unfortunately the pictures of the people are gone but the locations and scenery should be much the same.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

P.S. Bring lots of backup flash drives/SD cards future peregrinos! Backup your data!

The Forum has a lot of photos. For use beyond completely private, you should probably ask the photographer for permission (such as posting on Facebook).

I do many presentations and upload some of the slides to YouTube. I have almost 7,000 photos at this point from my many camino and would be willing to filter through if you're missing a specific place. I can offer broad overviews as well in the presentation videos. I did walk exclusively in Sept/Oct so my photos may be different than your memories if you walked in other months as the scenery is different. You are always welcome to take a peek at my YouTube page under SophieR, or look up Walking With Joy, Camino de Santiago in the search and you'll be directed there.

I managed to post about a dozen photos from each day of my recent Camino from SJPP to SdC. I finished a week ago.

I was posting to a Wordpress blog at the address https://walkdontrun.travel.blog. I reduced the photos to 900 px wide before adding them to the blog. That was done using the app Batchresize on an iphone.

If you find any of those useful, I can give you the full size version of them. Or just copy the reduced size photos, not big enough in detail for a full size monitor that’s probably 1920 pixels wide.

Camino Frances - Fall 2020
I have a top 100 photos album from the Francés here if that helps:
These are gorgeous images! Looking at them made me even more excited for my own Camino next year. Thank you for sharing.

I'm sorry to hear about your lost photos.

I posted my journals to a blog, same exact route as you. If you review it and see that I mentioned anywhere you remember, or stayed somewhere you recall enjoying, you can PM me and I'll send you any (full size) photos I have of those locations. I may not have a ton that are useful to you as I took a lot of selfies (my Mom told me not to send her any pics that didn't have my face! Ha!). But I have some non-selfie pictures and I'd be happy to send you some. I didn't put every picture in my blog.

Blog here.

My wife and I have roughly 500+ photos along the way. Although we did a couple of skips by bus or taxi for some rest days we pretty much have the whole thing documented in photos. I can send 'em to you or add you to my Google Photos album. The whole album also includes photos from Ireland and Scotland after the Camino. Let me know! you can send a PM with your email if you'd like to be added to the album.
