Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Trees


I could tell by the sky this morning that it was going to be another wet day so I went outside before it started to capture some images of trees.

First my favourite tree, the apple tree. which is starting to get some leaves. It had a prune over the winter and always looks interesting when it is bare.

Here you can see a variety of trees, my “spare” Photinia tree which is now taller than I am, behind it three of my back neighbours trees.  Finally in the background the tall gums where the kookaburras live. These are on farm land and crown land behind the power sub station.

My tree, neighbour trees, gum trees.

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.
