Thought for the day…” Keep smiling and one day life will get tired of trying to upset you”.
Airlines again…..just been trying to claim some missing airmiles from Qatar Airways. Would you believe that they have asked me to send in a SCANNED copy of my e-ticket? Yes, I had to read that twice to believe it, they want a scanned copy of an e-ticket? If I had nothing else to do in life then I would print out the E TICKET (what does that e in E-ticket mean, Qatar Airways???) and then scan it and send precisely the same information back to them again. They might like to play silly games, I do not.
Two more photos from the recent holiday, to the islands of the Seychelles in the Indian Pacific. it was the first real test of the new camera, the Fuji X-E1 and the results were great. The X-E1 is a camera that makes taking photos fun again, partly because it does not have fireworks/party/food/sport modes but does have dials where you can again take control of the photos. Add to that a larger sensor and some Fuji lenses which are outstanding in quality, and it is not hard to get some great photos. Guess who came back with a LOT of photos !! The Fuji X-E1 does not take good videos (seems to be a problem with all the Fuji cameras, as there are a lot of people saying the same thing) BUT it does one thing well, really well. It takes brilliant photos. The previous Sony A6000 was quickly returned to the shop, as despite having instant autofocus and more megapixels, was let down by lenses that just were not up to the job. The best camera in the world is no use if the glass at the front is poor, and Fuji have made sure that what is on the front of their cameras is not going to let what is at the back of the cameras down.
And also from the Seychelles, an Airbus A330 arrives at Mahe, with a Twin Otter already on the ground below.
