Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Through A Window

Through the Window

I do a bit of photography through windows. Sometimes I’m in a moving vehicle and can’t help myself even though I know the pictures will probably be bad. Sometimes it’s because of the weather and sometimes I am trying to photograph an animal or bird that I don’t want to frighten.

Here are some views looking out the window.

I love interesting shop window displays although they are not always easy to photograph because of the reflections.

I love the panoramic views from an Observation deck like the one at the KL Tower in Kuala Lumpur.

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.
