Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Modern Homes & Apartments

Newish Buildings

Most of these buildings are not brand new but they are the modern style of home. Generally I don’t find them attractive but they can sometimes be interesting to photograph. Sometimes I just photograph them so I can rant about what a blot on the landscape they are or how mad I am that a much nicer building was demolished to make way for them. I would not want to live in any of these although I admit the Hobart Waterfront ones have great views.

These townhouse apartments are some of many built near the river in Port Adelaide.

Here is an apartment building on the Hobart waterfront which was converted from grain silos in the early 2000’s.

Once they were silos holding grain, now an apartment block.

I visited this pod apartment set on top of an older building during Open House Hobart a few years ago.

Large cities always have a lot of apartment blocks like these in the Little India area of Singapore.

These modern houses are typical of the style of home that is starting to predominate on the sea front. These are here at Sisters Beach but they are everywhere.

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. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.
