As I was going into Hobart today to do a couple of errands I took my camera. There have been several cruise ships visiting this past week or so and I hoped there would be one today. There was and it was an “O” “Celebrity Solstice” so I decided that my photos would all be based on Hobart this week. I had my lunch near Elizabeth Street Mall where two young ladies were playing Christmas Carols. I enjoyed their playing so much I went over to give them some money and compliment them.
I went down to take some photos of the cruise ship and chatted to a passenger who told me that she thought it was an excellent ship in every respect. They are on their way to New Zealand, lucky people.
I took a few photos around the waterfront as I walked over to Brooke Street Pier and as it was too early for my bus I went to sit amongst the shady oak trees in the park in front of Parliament House. While I was sitting there I saw the horses over in Salamanca Place and as I knew they would go past me on the way to the cruise terminal I hurried to look for a good spot to photograph them coming back. Quite a successful hour I think. I took a lot more photos that I’ll save for another day and found lots of “O” words.
My words are:
- Celebrity Solstice
- Mona Roma
- Tour Bus
- Bus Stop
- Oak Trees
