Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Things with Motors


These first two photos were taken one day when David and I went for a drive to Dover and the car broke down. I have no idea why I took them except that there was nothing else to do at the time. I have blurred the number plate because the car belongs to someone else now.

Engine Trouble!

This next one was taken on my walk home from Geeveston today. I heard it making a lot of noise in someone’s garden so used my zoom lens to get the shot. I think it is used for mulching tree branches. The last one was also taken today at Michelle’s Roadhouse Kitchen in Geeveston.

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.
