Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge


Which Way to Battery Point

It’s been a long time since I’ve participated in the Which Way Challenge mainly because I rarely seem to go anywhere these days. My time is spent between the Op Shop and home and if I go to Hobart at all it is usually for shopping and I don’t take my camera. Today was a lovely autumn day so I forced myself out of the house with no plan in mind but to take pictures.

I had a vague plan to walk up to Battery Point but when I arrived in Hobart there was a cruise ship in so of course I had to stop and take pictures before continuing along the waterfront to Salamanca Place. Last time I was in Hobart it was a sunny Saturday and the Wooden Boat Festival and a large cruise ship being in port meant the waterfront was very busy and crowded. Today it was quite the opposite. Quite a few people were out and about but if felt very relaxed. After lunch I did walk up Kelly’s Steps to visit Arthur Circus in Battery Point but as I wanted to get the 2pm bus home I did not linger although I did stop to get one more photo of the cruise ship, Holland America’s Noordam.

I have taken photographs around Salamanca Place before but I tried to look for some different views today and try different settings on the camera. Not all were successful but I did get some photos for future challenges. This is one of my favourite parts of Hobart. The buildings are some of the oldest in the state dating from the early Victorian era. I was quite proud of myself for making it up Kelly’s Steps.

I must try to do a few more photography outings as I really miss them.

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.
