Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Things People Play With


Toys to Enjoy

Naturally, this is a favourite subject of mine.  You know I love dolls and toys generally but you don’t have to be a kid to play. In fact, I think we should all make time to play.

Here are two nice old bears. The larger one belongs to Naomi and had been visiting me to get some repairs done. The smaller one appeared at the Op Shop one morning minus his eyes. I saw he was an older Ted and bought him myself, took him home and gave him a new pair of eyes. He went back to Naomi’s house with his new friend.

Naomi and I saw this in a toy shop in Singapore. We don’t know what sort of game or collection it is but we thought that the pandas were cute.

I do love the intent expressions of people enjoying their hobbies. These next few show you are never too old to enjoy playing.

Now for something a little larger. There are two outdoor chess sets that I know of in Hobart. This one is in Franklin Square. Some young people were having fun with it this afternoon when I went to photograph it. These were taken with my phone.

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.
