Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Arches, Domes and Half Circles


Half Way Round

I do like the shape of arches and domes. I have taken quite a few of them over time but rather than be predictable I’ll try to find some photos I haven’t shared before. I found several photos of buildings around Hobart.

Arches

Arches above the windows in this building that houses Salamanca Fresh.

 

More arched windows and doors near the Hobart Waterfront.
The Playhouse Theatre in Hobart.

Domes

The old Post Office in Bellerive, now a museum.

The old post office at Bellerive has a small dome.

Well I have used this photo before but it is one of my favourite buildings. Flinders Street Station in Melbourne. I love the big dome and the big arched front entrance. I’ll be gutted if the latest “improvements” spoil it.

A few more domes, this time in Singapore.

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.
