Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Flowers


Luckily for me although it is nearly winter and there are not many flowers left in my garden I have taken a lot of photos of them over the past spring and summer and previous ones. I don’t really like gardening but I do like flowers and I like sitting out in the garden and being able to look at flowers so I have easy ones, roses, bulbs, perennials and the odd pot of colour like pansies and petunias.

Really I do prefer to see flowers in colour, I’ve preferred to see almost everything in colour since around 1970 when I bought my first roll of colour film but I’ve grown to appreciate the subtleties of black and white through participating in this challenge over the past couple of years.

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.
