Bad Photo Monday: Flash

Vice Regal car interior-01

David and I used to have a saying that the best way to make people think we were good photographers was to never show anyone the bad ones. When we’d get a film back from being processed we would examine all our photos together and cull the worst ones immediately . We would  then  usually cull again for ones we considered mediocre. However, I would make an exception for holiday photos in places I thought that I might not visit again. This was taken at Steamrail Victoria’s Railway Heritage Centre at Seymour although I am not sure if it was called that in 2007 when we were there. This was meant to be a photo of the interior of the Vice Regal (Governor’s) Car but as you can see I did not allow for the reflection of the flash in the mirror. This was taken with my first digital camera, a little Kodak Easyshare I bought for $50 from eBay.

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.
