Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Looking Down at Things


Looking Down

Although flying is not my preferred mode of travel, it comes before buses but after trains, ships and cars, one thing I do like about it is the opportunity to see the world from above. When I flew home from Adelaide in October I used my tablet to take some photos.

Looking down at the northern coast of Tasmania, the river is probably the Mersey at Devonport.

Approaching Hobart airport I can see the causeway at Midway Point on the eastern shore below me.

Observation towers and Observation Wheels (just mega Ferris Wheels really) are great for looking down at things too.

We don’t have any towers in Hobart but as it is a low-rise city you can still find places to look down at things.

Or you can just climb a hill.

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.
