Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: All About Buildings- Colourful Buildings

Colourful Buildings

As I’m having no luck at all in taking photos lately due to adverse weather conditions on the rare days I get out of Sisters Beach these photos are from the archives.

The first couple were taken in New Zealand.

Art Deco shops and cafes in Napier.

I always enjoyed doing photography in Hobart because of the large number of old and colourful buildings. Here are some of my favourites.

Technically I don’t know if the gates to Luna Park in Sydney count as a building but it is colourful.

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.
