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.

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our 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. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
