Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Lines and Angles

Books, Books and more Books

I remembered these angled bookshelves which are in a little room called The Bower at the Botanical Gardens. I had another opportunity to photograph them while we were there on Saturday and that inspired me to use books as my sub theme for this challenge. Rows of books create a lot of straight lines.

I have a lot of books myself and recently had to move three book cases. I can’t remember why I photographed these books but it was probably thinking that I might use them in a challenge. These are my favourite travel stories.

Of course I have a lot of doll and bear related books that come in handy for a doll blogger.

Here is part of the book area at our Op Shop. The book nook is my pet project as I try to fit books onto the shelves and keep the whole thing reasonably tidy and accessible to customers. I have had to do a lot of stacking to achieve that.

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. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.
