Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: In Flight


Flight

I wanted to photograph birds for this challenge even though I knew it was going to be difficult. Birds are nearly always too quick for me in flight and the ones in my garden are rather small.

However, walking back to the bus stop on Saturday after Naomi dropped me off I went along the waterfront. It is a favourite spot for seagulls either catching their own fish or scavenging from customers at the fish punts. I had ten minutes so I pulled out my camera.

I went over my old photos taken in the same area to see if I had any other suitable photos. I didn’t find any other good bird photos but did find some of planes in flight.

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.
