Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Lights


Lights

I knew that this challenge would be a tough one for me. I live in the country and my house is just outside of town. There is no street lighting, few houses and to make it even more fun I can’t see very well in the dark. However, as it is winter it is dusk at about 5:30 pm so I ventured outside to see what I could come up with. But first, here are some I prepared earlier. (You know I love saying that.)

Now, for this evening’s efforts. These were taken at about 5:30pm and it was barely light.  Half an hour later and I would not have been able to see much at all. I carry a small torch in my handbag if I am catching the bus home at this time as it is hard to see to cross the road. I did not turn on the front porch light and the back one does not work so the driveway is lit with my two remaining solar lights.I bought six two years ago, the others were taken out by Cindy running into them, the garden guys with their whipper snipper or the postie who hit the one I had by the letterbox (at least I think it was the postie). You can see the two solar lights in the first picture. The second one is my favourite, it looks pretty good in colour too. You can see the lights of the neighbour’s houses and the headlights of an approaching car.

It really is only 5:30 pm.

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.
