A Frosty Morning in Oatlands

As I was up early for work last Thursday I decided to take my camera to work with me. I thought I could get my hallway photos for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge and also anything else I saw on the way there and back. Well it turned out to be a very cold morning and -5 was recorded here in town. There was a huge frost and it was quite foggy. I thought I would have a bit of fun experimenting with my camera. I’m not what you call the world’s greatest photographer but here’s what I got. The photo above was taken after 11am when the frost was melting and the sun was out. I liked how the sun shone on the wet road. Damp and fog rising from the road were caught in the sunlight too.


I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see
