Vibrant Colours

Coat Of Many Colours at Salamanca Market

You definitely need sunglasses to look at this brightly coloured jacket I photographed at Salamanca Market one Saturday.

It has been so long since the sky was really blue but today it was. This helicopter was flying around overhead for some time this afternoon, inspecting power lines I think. I didn’t have my big lens handy but went out to capture some pictures anyway and realised that this blue was one of the most vibrant colours I’ve seen for quite some  time.

The vibrant colours of the Green Rosella against a background of bright red berries and green grass in these photos from 2014 and earlier this year.

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.
