Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Em & En

M & N

Our letters this week are M and N. Most of mine are photos that I already had and edited for this post. I often photograph the maps around Hobart, partly for blogging challenges but also because when I eventually get around to doing more scrapbooking they work well as titles.
Misfits is a card game that we used to play as children. This is not our original set, Naomi managed to find another one. I took this when I photographed her toy room a few years ago.

The waterfront is a favourite location as you know and I photograph any large ship in port. The cruise ships are my favourites of course but naval and scientific vessels are interesting too.

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.


  1. The poor baby from the Misfit game looks kind of out of place among all those big ships. Maybe that’s why he is crying. The Misfits was my very favourite card game when I was little. I’m glad I got a new deck. In fact I have two now. Ships always look great in photos and are a wonderful subject.
