Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Man Made or Natural Light

Natural vs Man Made

Natural Light

Here are some photos taken in natural light. The first one at the Cenotaph I remember well. I was walking back towards the city but had to stop and photograph the dramatic clouds.

Black as the Ace of Spades

This one was taken late one afternoon last winter. The light comes from the setting sun. The following photo taken on a sunny day at Penguin beach had plenty of natural light.

Man Made Lighting

A lot of my photography at home uses a combination of flash and natural light but these two were taken at Hobart Town Hall. The first one has some light coming in through the windows but the second one was a very dark area and lit in green for atmosphere.

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.
