Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pastel Colours


Pastels in a Technicolour World

Before starting this post I looked around the house to see what I had in the way of pastel colours. Turns out that I don’t really do pastels; I’ve always preferred brighter colours.

My next idea was to take some photos at the Op Shop but as often happens the demands of a busy day of unpacking goods and finding places for them derailed that plan.

So back to the archives. I really don’t take a lot of photos of things in pastel colours, except flowers. Thank heavens for flowers.

When I think of pastel colours I think of babies. Here are three of mine dressed in pastel colours.

Finally  a few buildings.

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.
