Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Paths and Trails

Paths in the school playground

This afternoon I played hooky from chores and went out to take some photos for Cee’s challenges. I did not go far from home. These photos were taken in the play area at the back of the school near my house.  I had gone over there to take photos in the attached cemetery (it is a Catholic school) and found the play areas very intriguing and full of photo ops. As was Saturday there was nobody around so no child’s privacy was invaded during the taking of these photos.

I must say they have some very cool play areas and I will show them in a bit more detail, and in colour, in another post. I especially liked the walkway made with old tyres so I included it as a path of a different kind.

I think this path may be part of a bike track.

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.
