  3. Argh! Yes the flies can be truly terrible and just stick to you. I remember having to wave my hands non-stop around my Dad when he was trying to eat a sandwich on a trip to the Eastern Goldfields in 2013 as the flies were like in your pictures. He had fairly advanced Parkinson's by then and it was too hard for him to eat and fend them off at the same time. I basically acted as a crazy windmill so that he could have a fly-free sandwich for lunch.
  4. That sounds fantastic Michael. It's great to have lifelong friends and that you are all free spirits. Enjoy the mountains and friendship! Thanks re: Mother's Day too. I'm thinking of my Mum today (it's already mother's day here in Australia). She died in November and it has been really tough as it was sudden and unexpected, but feel I turned some kind of corner in the last couple of days in the grieving process, which I know is ongoing but I feel a bit more at peace than I have in a long time. My brother will be visiting in a couple of hours and I am making Mexican Quinoa and Salsa
  5. Glad you are ok Steve, but feel for you re: the A7iii 😢 If you do have to send it off for repair, do you have another Alamy-accepted camera you can use in the meantime? I thought that might at least lift your spirits if you can still get out and do some photography. About three years ago I was photographing pelicans at a beach. I walked over an area of rock I didn't realise was slippery and went for a fall. The telephoto lens I had on the camera is my most expensive lens. So I awkwardly kept it raised up as I fell, leading me to fall more awkwardly. I ended up badly straining, bu
  6. You're welcome Gen! I really like the composition in this one. The two trees balance the image really well. The article was interesting too. I learned something about spinifex circles! Glad you got a decent license fee for it.

  9. Thanks Colin, amazing images. I love the Margaret River one which is only about 3 hours drive south for me. There's a surfing comp on down there right now with some big swell. I want to get some wave images down there one day, but don't think I'll be right in the thick of it like those photographers. The Ray Collins images are phenomenal. Waves are so artistic which we get to really see in detail thanks to the capabilities of modern cameras!
  10. I started posting the images as I thought it was a way for people to quickly identify their image, but I'm equally happy not to if that is the preferred option. I've also enjoyed finding images and often find them interesting and so thought it was worth sharing them, but I can see that some contributors may not want to have their images included and may prefer the name and image ID only. So perhaps I will revert to just the image and contributor details but not the images themselves.
  11. Thanks for the link Paulette. They sound almost human! I had no idea they make such a sound. There is something sweet and gentle about their faces. It's very sad about the one you saw in the zoo. I'm glad at least that there is some good news for the remaining wild population. I've also read about the Javan Rhino which is even more rare with only about 60 left https://www.worldwildlife.org/species/javan-rhino

  16. Yes I understand what you mean Edo. You have to delve deeper with Affinty to figure out what the terms mean and how they relate to different functions.
  17. Well I had planned to get out and photograph buskers this month but various events have got in the way, the last one being a Covid snap lockdown. So instead I will have to upload three from the same performance by circus artists Quatuor Stomp at the Fremantle Street Arts Festival because that's all I have. Sorry for the lack of variety!

  20. Glad it is up and running for you again Ed 👍 You probably won't have a need for Affinity now you have Photoshop back. Hope things keep improving, not just with computers, but with fire alarms and living arrangements!
  21. Hi Allan. I can report back that the keywords I added in Capture One populated in AIM. What did not populate, however, was the title/caption. I think this is because I have used the wrong field in the metadata tab in Capture One. I put it in "Title" under IPTC -Status. Possibly it was meant to be in "Headline" under IPTC - Content. To make things more confusing there is also an IPTC - Getty Images category, suggesting some type of integration with that??? Not sure if this would integrate with other stock agencies or how it is meant to work. However, there are no field o
  22. When I was in Bhutan we went to a small festival at a remote village. I was sitting next to an elderly man who could not speak English and I could not speak any of the languages spoken in Bhutan. Nonetheless, we had the best conversation talking to each other in our own languages while laughing because we knew we couldn't understand each other's words but we understood the gestures and good will. He was so warm and friendly and it was so entertaining we were rollicking in semi-hysterics. The younger people in Bhutan speak in English, but the older ones in the more remote areas not necessarily.

  24. Hi Allan, just letting you know I just uploaded some images and I put the keywords and a title on one of them in Capture One beforehand. While they are in QC I can't click on that photo to see if the caption and keywords are populated in AIM. But they usually take about 24 hours to pass, so will let you know after that. Will probably be Friday morning Perth, Australia time now as they'll probably pass while I'm asleep Thursday night. Will let you know probably on what will be Thursday evening your time (I think!). Yes, people do say "no worries" here all the time, including myself.
