Just One Person From Around The World


Tasmanians

A musician at Penguin Market, Northwest Tasmania.

Today I’m joining in a photo challenge from ThatTravelLadyInHerShoes called Just One Person From Around The World. The object of this challenge is to share photographs of everyday people around the world. I’m sharing a couple from my home state of Tasmania, Australia.

The one above is a local musician who often plays at a popular Sunday market in Penguin, a town not far from where I live. The next one is a surfer at Sisters Beach, where I live.

Peter Fielding is a historian and model builder who lives in Oatlands, Tasmania. Here he is exhibiting a model railway diorama that he built for the Hobart Model Train Show. The lady in the last photo was absorbed in her knitting as we travelled on a bus.

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.

    • Apart from the busker most of my shots were old ones but maybe that is the point of the challenge. To remind us that there are “normal” people like us still out there.
