Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge -Cities and City Structures


Capital Cities

I haven’t visited every Australian capital city yet but I hope to eventually. I do enjoy photographing the built environment of cities.

Melbourne I visited recently. There are always cranes everywhere, the city has changed so much since my first visit in 1977. The photo was taken from the Star Observation Wheel.

I lived in the suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life and worked there for some years so I know the city well but I’ve seen a lot of changes in the twelve years since we left. This photo was taken on our last visit there.

Hobart is now the city nearest to where I live. The photo of Elizabeth Mall was taken  last summer. I was in town to see the Sydney Hobart Race yachts and go to a cricket match. It didn’t stop raining all day. I love the colours of the pavers and the flower boxes.

The photo of Sydney Harbour Bridge was taken from Milson’s Point on the North Shore. I had taken the train over the bridge in order to walk back over it.

Taswegian1957

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.
