  1. eye of the tiger, Survivor. some lyrics It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight Risin' up to the challenge of our rival And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger Face to face, out in the heat Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry They stack the odds 'til we take to the street For the kill with the skill to survive Now I remember the 70s TV series Survivors about a pandemic
  2. Yes they refunded me because of gov advice not to travel to manila phil. but rebooked us for November with another airline for little extra cost and certainly not £200 for each FLIGHT. We could have rebooked with the same airline for no extra up to June 30 but it's now too soon with the rapidly worsening conditions. When the gov advises against travel to a certain country travel insurance can become invalid so agencies have to either refund you or re-book
  3. If people continue to congregate in outside places & ignore advice. the government will bring in more stringent itailan style measures to combat the virus. But will you still be allowed outside to take photos on your own because it will drive me mad staying in all the time esspecialy with warmer weather coming..
  4. I bought a cheaper (but still good) sony alpha nex with a flip touch screen not as visible as a dslr. but eagle eyed guards still notice me.
  5. If you are in a public place I understand that they have no right to stop you at least in the UK But the other day I tried to take a picture on a (deserted) Pescod shopping centre in Boston uk and was told by someone with a pescod shirt logo that I couldn't take photos without permission. Turns out it's privately owned even though it's open air & the public are allowed to roam freely. How the hell do you know where to get permission from as I'm not a professional, I just enter photo competitions on the net ie gurushots. and sell a few stock photos (but none on alamy yet) My camera is a pretty un-noticeable sony alpha nex This topic is one of the reasons why I didn't want a DSLR in the first place.
  6. Can you get away with taking photos in shops? I once took a photo with an old nokia phone in a well known chain & they asked me to delete it.
  7. what I liked about film though is that you had to be realy selective in what subjects you shot so you didn't run out and had to take real care with focusing exposure etc. so you didn't waste film. With digital I still take the same amount of care (Had to to pass QC) but aslo because I deon't want too many photos to sort out & upload. Problem is you have to upload a lot to get any sales. The problem with digital as harry hinted on is how would anybody view digital photos in the far future. Hard drives don't last forever & memory cards break & ppl. don't print anymore. The cloud owned by google etc. may go out of business
  8. Hello everyone this seems like a great forum - much better than SS' one I'm quite new on alamy & my brother Mark has been on here for many years. I have a question: relating to coronavirus. I know a lot of you may travel. I have flights booked for March 19 but the place My wife & I are traveling to (Manila, Philippines) has gone on lockdown. They have stopped UK citizens from traveling there unless they are a spouse of a ph citizen which I am. but if we went there, we'd have to go in quarantine which naturaly we don't want and I couldn't take photos . I luckily have travel insurance but the flight hasn't been cancelled yet. The travel agency has offered to rebook the flight for a later time but want another £200 each which I cannot afford. I'm wondering if the travel insurance would cover the extra cost of rebooking the flight.
  9. OH so as long as they have passed QC you then choose which ones would be editorial? because at the minute I cannot find an editorial ckick box on alamy
  10. some of your photos has a green colour cast so need correcting. and some subjects are too far away I only saw your 1st page though
  11. I had the same issue but you solve it if you add captions to each ifphoto. then they show up For sale straitaway which probably means are already for sale without the captions - a bit confusing
