Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Pick A Topic From My Photo


Cee set us quite an interesting challenge this week to pick our subject from one of the elements of the photo she posted.  We’ve been having all sorts of weather mayhem this week so I didn’t think it would be too hard to find some rain or reflections. However, I was keen to see if I could find something industrial to photograph too. As I’m still doing my hospital visiting routine I took Hubby’s little Canon Powershot A550 which is small and fits in my handbag. My Nikon Coolpix fits in my handbag too but it is big and bulky. I am still not too familiar with this camera so I keep it on Auto. Here is Cee’s Photo.

I knew it was going to be tricky but I decided to take some photos out of the window of the bus. I’ve done it before and I thought it would at least produce some reflections.
I am quite pleased with this first photo of Port Huon Wharf. We’d stopped to pick up a passenger so I had a minute to organise myself. Port Huon Wharf is used by Huon Aquaculture as a base for their fish farming operations. The large ship you can see is called the Ronja Huon and it is a well ship. The company recently bought it for bathing and transporting fish.  I guess the rainbow could count as a reflection too.

Nearby I snapped a picture of another local building Mitchell Plastic Welding. They make things like irrigation pipes and supply a lot of stuff to the aquaculture industry I think.

The weather went downhill after that and on the way home from Hobart I took a couple more pictures. Here is one looking out the front of the bus.

I jumped out of the bus at Huonville to do some errands there before catching a later one home and snapped this one at the bus stop. So I had found industrial, vehicles, rain, windows and reflections. I even managed to sneak some red, green and grey into these photos. Job done!

It was a very chilly, wintry afternoon. I don’t think those solar panels on top of the bus shelter would have been helping much. I was very glad to get home and put the heater on.

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. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.
