Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter U – needs to have O & U in the words

I started jotting down some words that had both an O and a U in them and came up with several good ones but the trick was to find these words in objects that I could photograph or ones I already had captured. Diving into my archives I found a good many and several I liked a lot. Some because they reminded me of good times I’ve had on an outing or holiday with Vanda or Phillip and even times with my beloved pets. Others I just loved the colour or the way the photo turned out. I am not the world’s greatest photographer as I have said many times so when I get it right I get quite excited. There are one or two in this collection I really like. I have learnt something while looking back on photos I have taken over the last few years. When you are taking photos of the things you love they are bound to come out better than the shots we take because we think we need to take them. I don’t know if anyone else gets hung up on this. I think we often snap this or that and then those photos are put away and forgotten. Who does not have a box of old photographs never displayed in an album. I know it’s all digital these days and I often wonder where these pictures end up. Well there are things I love like my pets, ships, old buildings and cars of course. I’ve noticed I’m taking better ones of these but my snap snap snap shots are still boring and lack a sense of interest so I delete them. Most of todays pictures are things I like and here they are.

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
