Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Candid Shots

Smile! You’re on Candid Camera

I have not been organised enough to submit photos for the past two B&W challenges so I was determined to do something this week.

I have chosen to use old photographs which I took at public events. I don’t usually post close up pictures of people on the blog in case it invades their privacy but in this case two of the photos were taken at a political rally and one was taken when I was volunteering at our local community radio station so I don’t think there should be any objection.

The interview. I liked the mirrored hand gestures in this photo.

Of course most animal photos are candid anyway, at least I’ve never managed to get a cow to pose for me.

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.
