Reflections on Photography


I guess the only thing I really miss a lot since moving here and especially since the lockdown began is taking photos in a variety of locations. I like to photograph buildings, ships, trains and events but there are no events now. There are no public buildings in Sisters Beach except the shop, the fire station and the toilet block. I’m not quite desperate enough to photograph the loos yet but it might happen at some point. We do have a lot of interesting houses and Naomi and I have both photographed some of them but they are people’s homes, you can’t be too intrusive.

I do a lot of doll photography, dolls are people substitutes who stand where you want them to stand and don’t ask for a model release. Apart from that my photos are tending to be more nature and art. I do more photo editing and playing around with filters and effects.

I have always liked photographing reflections and my walk on Friday provided some nice ones. I really like the partly sunny, partly cloudy conditions and I actually haven’t edited these all that much as I didn’t feel they needed any arty effects.

In this last one it’s hard even for me to tell which is real and which is a reflection and I was there!

Taswegian1957

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. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.
