Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Jump Rope


Jump Rope

When you spend as much time visiting the Hobart waterfront as I do you get plenty of opportunities to photograph ropes. I’ve always enjoyed taking pictures of the gear on racing yachts particularly and I love  the Tall Ships.

Jumping is a bit harder but here are a couple of things that jump, or at least go up and down. Carousel horses for example and an Observation Wheel which is just a fancy name for a mega-sized Ferris Wheel.

and of course frogs jump, although these ones don’t.

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.
