Some Fun with Colour & B&W

In other words I was bored this afternoon and had nothing better to do than muck about on the computer. It has rained here all week end and I’ve hardly put a foot out the door. I did manage to get the dogs out for a short walk but we got quite wet on the way home and had to shelter under various trees and verandahs on the way home. So what did I come up with. Well I found some photos I took in a back alley way in Hobart. I’ve no idea why I took these but I thought they were interesting at the time. As I said in a previous post I simply just aim and shoot sometimes. I get an idea and try to make it happen. So today I am having a bit of fun with these pictures. I decided to see how the same shop looks in colour and black and white on this post. Here we go.

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
