Cee’s Black & White Challenge: Structures

Industrial Structures

I decided to make my post mostly about industrial structures and I chose buildings and objects from two ports. Sydney Harbour and Port Adelaide. The Sydney ones were taken at Cockatoo Island when I visited there. I thought that it was very interesting to see the remains of the naval dockyard that had once been there as much as the historic convict era buildings. Fort Denison the small island in the harbour is also convict era. The other Sydney photo is a building on a wharf I think at Rose Bay where they do charter flights with a sea plane.
Port Adelaide is a place that had a strong industrial background which is now being replaced by townhouses and flats which are not improving the landscape.

I enjoyed using Adobe Photo Elements to edit these old photos.

Born in England in 1957 my 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. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
