Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Needs to contain the Letter “J” and be at least six letters long


The Alphabet According to Cee – J is in:

I thought this one was going to be tricky but it turned out that when I searched my archives I had quite a few pictures that would meet the criteria.

  • Journal
  • Jewellery
  • Japanese Maple
  • Beijing
  • Jindivik

The journal is the travel diary Naomi gave me before our cruise, although I did most of my journalling in the accompanying note book. The jewellery is old shop stock from when Naomi used to run a Scottish, Irish and Welsh shop. I was going to take a new photo of my Japanese Maple but I cheated and used one I already had. The next photo is a scan of one that I took in Tiannammen Square in Beijing in 1990. I’ve always liked this particular photo although I imagine there are many more cars and fewer bicycles these days.

The last one is interesting. I took it during a visit to the Aviation Museum in Adelaide. Jindivik is the name of a pilotless aircraft, the little one nestled under the wing of a larger plane. It was developed in the late 1940’s and first flew in 1952. I had no idea radio controlled unmanned planes were around so early.

Taswegian1957

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.
