Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Autumn – Metal


Autumn – Metal

I always have a hard time deciding whether autumn or spring is my favourite season. The colours of spring are lovely but I really enjoy autumn in Tasmania. As we have a cooler climate autumn here is more the way I remember the English autumn days of my early childhood.

Metal

This old rusting crane is on Cockatoo Island in Sydney. It may not be beautiful but you do get a sense of the power it must have generated when it was hard at work in the old naval dockyard.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a favourite subject of mine. I like bridges generally but this one is something special, beauty and strength here.

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.
