Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Small Subjects


Small is Relative

On Saturday I visited the Hobart Model Train Show and of course all the exhibits there are small but some are really small. The smallest layouts at the show were the ones entered in the “A4 Challenge”.

The A4 Challenge  – build a railway themed scene no larger than a sheet of A4 paper.

Tiny people and tiny accessories.

A tiny road gang
Freight loads for tiny trains.

I love photographing the miniature scenery nearly as much if not more than the trains.

A lovely little town in miniature.

There were also some miniature traction engines on display and while these are considerably bigger than the model railway layouts they are small compared to the real thing.

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.
