Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: People at Work

Men At Work

Here are a couple of photos from my cricket archives. I have a lot from the many matches I attended at Bellerive Oval. The first one was taken at a Big Bash game in 2013 where are local Hobart Hurricanes were playing the Brisbane Heat. That’s current Australian Cricket Captain Tim Paine wicket keeping. The man in the second photo may not look busy but his job was coaching the English T20 team and on that particular evening they were not doing very well so he had a lot to write down.

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.
