Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge:Open

Open Challenge

I haven’t been online much due to Internet problems and not being able to use my new computer because of the virus protection software blocking my Internet access. What a nightmare that was. I couldn’t use either of my computers hardly at all over the last couple of weeks hence the lack of posts. I’ve been busy hunting down my favourite apps and my music library. I just have to have my music. Everything just comes to a complete stand still without it in this house. Well tonight I’m really just getting back into things again. I found I wasn’t too late for the last B&W challenge so I got out two pictures at random that have nothing at all to do with each other and played about with them a bit. Now they look quite old and like they came out of an old trunk that had been hidden away in an attic for decades. I had fun doing this and hope to do some more very soon.

The first photo is of my old Stenmar piano which was made in New York during the Edwardian era so I’m told. It’s around 100 years old. I have never been able to find out anything about this piano apart from what is engraved inside the case. It remains a bit of a mystery as nobody seems to know anything about R Stenmar of New York.

The second photo is taken from the Bridgewater Bridge at Bridgewater. This is a northern suburb of Hobart and I was there to take photos of the bridge. While I was there I took a photo of the view from it. I rather liked the picture so decided to use it for this challenge.

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
