Capturing people being people, and the finer details of four and two wheeled blingy classic automotives – two fave ‘topics’ of imagery :-))
nicely captures the boredom of waiting for the flight.
Thank you very much, John :-))
… wanted to be sure I didn’t suffer the same ‘transit lounge’ fate – got sneaky with a camera :-D
Love the symmetry Ell!
Hehe, thank you Jordan, the ‘collection’ of all those legs appealed to me too at the time :-)))
See waiting, don’t see much transiting:) You have captured the futility of modern travel! ;
LOL!!! … ALWAYS enjoy your wit and humour, John!!! :-D… thank very much for the comment :-)))
Very sneaky !!…… great shot Ell…. :D
Hehheeee, thank you very much, Gordo :-D… got this while peaking around from behind a large structural pilon ;-)
Woooo! :-DAinsley, thank you very much for the feature!! :-D
Hey, Ell….comgrats on the feature. I can feel their tiredness and frustration. Vince :o)
Hey Vince, thank you!! :-)))… you must be a more seasoned traveller than me, or I haven’t had the “pleasure” of a layover longer than two hours ;-) Did get annoyed with the ‘customs’ staff in Abu Dhabi on the journey home though – had just purchased a new bottle of water and was not allowed to take it into the transit lounge! Either I drank it all there and then (500ml), or toss it out!! WTF??? Because it didn’t meet the Australian Customs standards of a “secure water bottle”! You should have seen the volume of nearly full bottles of water thrown out! A total rort!! … I smell a rat … ]:-(
we’ve all been there! I fell asleep at Dubai airport in April and missed my onward flight by 3-1/2 hours! I can relate!
Nadine! OMG!!!!! … hahahaaaa :-D… not very funny at the time I’m sure, but hope you can have a bit of a giggle now :-))
Ohhh, Joe, thank you very very much for the feature :-))))
