Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge


Which Way Around Franklin Square

Saturday morning I found myself in Hobart at 7:30 am with an hour to wait for a bus to the cricket. I decided to spend some of it taking photographs for the Which Way Challenge. My bus was leaving from Macquarie Street so my pictures are from nearby Franklin Square and Davey Street.

The short street leading to the waterfront in the next photo is Brooke Street. To reach it from Davey Street you have to use a steep flight of stairs. On the right, where the cars are parked but not visible in the photo is the hotel where I worked for several years when I first came to Tasmania. I rarely used the stairs unless I was going to Elizabeth Street to go the shops. Hobart is quite a hilly city and takes your breath away in more ways than one.

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.
