Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Houses and/or Barns


Houses and Barns

This week Cee has asked us to show houses and / or barns. I am very interested in architecture and the built environment so I knew I would enjoy this challenge. Most of the photos are from my archives but I did have the opportunity to take a couple of new ones while I was away in Adelaide recently.

Here are some older style homes in the suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia.

In many cities former industrial sites and older homes like the ones above are being demolished to make way for apartment blocks like these. I do not approve.

The apartment in the next photo is well known to many older Australians who remember the TV series “Number 96”. This is the apartment block used for the exterior scenes in the show which was filmed in the Sydney suburb of Woolhara.

Australians of a certain age may recognise this block of flats in Sydney as the location of popular TV series “Number 96”

The next homes are convict era cottages in Tasmania built in the early  to mid 1800s followed by a couple of grander homes from the same era.

 


Finally a couple of modern apartments in Hobart.

Born in England in 1957 my 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. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
