Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Any Kind of Camera or Photographers


Camera’s and Photographers

Photographers

While I generally try to avoid getting other people in my photos sometimes photographing the photographers can be fun and sometimes a way to get a casual photo of a friend or relative when they are occupied and not thinking about posing.

Rail fans love taking line side photos of trains, my friend Bruce is somewhere in this picture.

Here is Bruce taking photos while we were on a cruise on the Gordon River near Strahan six years ago this weekend. It was not a nice day but he persevered.

I took this one of David at Port Huon a few years ago. He always had a camera in the car in case he saw something he wanted to photograph although he rarely ever seemed to get a film developed once we moved here. He was thinking about buying a DSLR when he was taken ill.

Photographer at work, Gardens By the Bay , Singapore. From my point of view they spoiled my picture of the Super Trees but as a picture of a photographer and model it works.

Cameras

This is the camera I use most often now.

My Pentax K10

As I have mentioned in the past David used to collect cameras. These next two photos are of some of  them. First a Bell & Howell 8mm movie camera and then two instant cameras, one by Polaroid and the other by Kodak.

This last one is Paparazzi Dog, a bronze sculpture in Salamanca Place. There are a series of these in various cities around the world. I even saw one in Singapore though I neglected to photograph it.

Taswegian1957

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. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.
