Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Hands, Feet or Paws

Hands, Feet or Paws

Polly thinks I’ve taken enough photos.

This was an accidental photo. We had only had Polly a few days and she was on my lap. I had the camera handy  thinking I would take some pictures while she was  settled but she caught sight of it and wanted to play. The next one was a posed photo. I’d been doing a Barbie fashion shoot for the doll blog and decided that as this doll had articulated arms she might go all Kardashian and try to avoid the photographer.

No Photos please!

The rest of the photos for this challenge were taken today. Naomi and I met up in Hobart and went for a walk around the waterfront and Salamanca looking for good shots of hands and feet. Here are mine, Naomi will post hers later.

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.
