Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Candid Photography

Candid Photography

I don’t really do portraits. I do most of my photography alone and Naomi hates having her photo taken anyway, so candid photos are what I usually do if I’m out and about. I do try to be mindful of people’s privacy but I figure if they are doing something public like making a speech, entertaining or exhibiting something I’m not really intruding by taking a photo. At the tulip farm everyone was taking photos and probably half of them are going to end up on Instagram anyway so I was not too worried. My subjects in this first photo are not too recognisable, I hope.

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.
