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.
