Cee’s Black& White Photo Challenge: Pets or Stuffed Animals

Our pets are frequent models for these challenges except for Panther who is very shy and still scared of me. I have only managed to take two photos of her since she’s been here. One where she has her eyes closed making it look like she doesn’t have any and the featured one where she looks like she’s seen a monster. When Naomi is here Panther lets me stroke her sometimes but if mum isn’t around to protect her she runs and hides if I make a move towards her, even though I feed them every day.

All Our Pets

Tigerwoods is such a good model, he never minds posing for a picture. He loves attention and being made a fuss of.

As you can see Panther doesn’t like me very much!

And of course the dogs.

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.
