Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Alleys, Driveways, Parking Lots and Dirt Roads

Roads Less Travelled

This week Cee has asked us for pictures of alleys, driveways, car parks or dirt roads. This presented me with a bit of a problem because as I mostly travel by public transport these days I don’t often get onto the roads less travelled.  A dip into the archives is required.

A dirt road in the Northern Territory.In the background you can see The Olga’s (Kata Tjuta). This photo was taken in the 1980s so for all I know this road may be sealed now. The colour of the soil in the Northern Territory is amazing.

This narrow lane leads down to the water. It is in Battery Point, Hobart.

I could have photographed this one again actually. It is the laneway next to my house. It is occasionally used by vehicles from the power company to access the power lines.

Not really a road at all.

Last but not least, my driveway. Now to figure out how to find pictures of highways for next week’s challenge.

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.
