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

    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 :-))
