Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge 2014 #23

I think I must have always been a “Which Way” photographer. So many of my photos seem to be on this topic.

Two years ago my sister and I were in Sydney on holidays and I took the following photos at St James Station which is on the City Circle Line. It is one of the two oldest underground stations in Australia.

St James is well known for its unused tunnels, and for having been set up as a bomb shelter during World War 2. Apparently every now and then it is possible to explore the tunnels on a guided tour. I would love to do that!

In 2011 St James was the setting for a horror movie. “The Tunnel”.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
