Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: People at Work


Working for the Man

My photos this week have a holiday theme as they were taken on Ovation of the Seas, while visiting the Puffing Billy railway near Melbourne or at an airport.

We did a tour of the ship including the galley and laundry areas.

On long layovers you take photos to pass the time. I was lucky enough to spot the pilots doing their pre flight checks while the ground crew prepared the plane and loaded the luggage.

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.
