Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Things Made of Wood


In My Neck of the Woods

Geeveston is a town that strongly identifies with timber so it is very easy to find it in the local landscape.

This morning I had a house viewing so once again set off with Cindy for a walk. I took these first three photos with my smartphone.

An old apple packing shed on the Huon Highway.

Wood carving is a bit of a thing around here. The town is well known for its wooden statues of local characters. Chainsaw carving can produce some surprisingly detailed sculptures too.

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.

    1. The old cattle fencing is behind Dr Sawtooth’s glass studio, near Sacred Heart school. The carving photos are old ones from a Forest Festival but the statues are always good to photograph.
