Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Catching People Unaware


Unaware

The Knitting Lady

I have always quite liked this photo that I took of a lady on the bus one day. She was absorbed in her knitting and although I don’t usually photograph strangers she just looked interesting. I have actually cropped this from a larger photo as I was a few seats away from her.

The Cricketer

These days cricketers give many photo ops to fans as selfies are the new autographs. I am shy about approaching them however and in any case I prefer a natural photo to a posed one and I don’t want loads of pictures of me anyway. I took this one at a Hurricanes game in 2017 and although he’s not a favourite player I quite like the shot.

Friends and Family

My friends Gillian and Bruce at the old Sunbury Asylum site.

Two photos from Easter 2010 when David and I had just got a new car and went over to Bruny Island for the day. Like me David did not really like to pose for photos and if he did he usually pulled a silly face so catching him unawares was a better idea.

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.
