Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Old & New


Old & New

For this challenge I’ve tried to find some pairs of objects. My first camera given to me when I was about eight years old and my current camera the Pentax KR10D. The Pentax of course is not brand new, state of the art but it is a darn site newer than the old plastic one.

A bit dusty but this is my first camera given to me around 1965.

An old RAAF DC3 at a museum and a modern passenger jet. I think it is an Embraer.

Here’s a vintage tram in the tram museum in Launceston and a modern tram, or as they like to say now Light Rail vehicle in Adelaide.

This last one is an old and new from Picton, New Zealand where this hotel has retained the facade of the original pub but nothing else. I could not decide if I liked this or not.

Taswegian1957

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.
