Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Y or Z


Y and Z

Finally we come to the end of the alphabet series and while I’ve had a photo squirreled away for Z I’ve been trying to think about what I can use for Y apart from the obvious “yacht”. I found a couple of old pictures that I had scanned from prints. One was from our trip to Uluru in the 1980’s. Back then it was still commonly referred to as Ayers Rock but the nearby hotel complex was called Yulara. Now the rock is generally known as Uluru, the indigenous name for it but the hotel complex is Ayers Rock Resort – go figure. It is not a great photo so turning it sepia was probably an improvement.

The other one is from the nineties when I worked in the Adelaide rail yard. Also not a great photo but that place does not exist any more.

And yes, there is a yacht.

The Letter Y

  • Yulara
  • Yacht
  • Yard

Now called Ayers Rock Resort this was once called Yulara.

The Adelaide Railyard, circa 1990’s

The Letter Z

  • Zeppelin
  • Zephyr

Zeppelin, a fishing boat moored on the Hobart waterfront and a Ford Zephyr I saw at a car show.
