A Photo a Week Challenge: Bridges

Building Bridges

I dug into my archives for this challenge and found many different types of bridge photos. Here are a few of them.

Artistic Bridges

Here are a couple of bridges that feature art in the form of sculptures.

Historic Bridges

These bridges are beautiful as well as functional even after nearly 200 years.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Places People Live

Homes of Hobart

I love walking the streets looking at old or interesting houses I love to photograph them too and I hope their owners don’t mind me sharing these pictures. I don’t photograph local houses as much because it seems a bit cheeky. I know I would think it odd if some random person were standing outside my house taking photographs. Although, if they came and asked me if they could photograph my house for their blog I’d probably say yes.

These old houses are in North Hobart. I like the colour and style of them very much.

Heading back into Hobart, these apartments at the end of Salamanca Place are in a converted grain silo.

If we walk up to Princes park or climb Kelly’s Steps we come to Battery Point.

These houses on Arthur’s Circus in Battery Point are some of the oldest homes in Hobart and are frequently photographed by tourists.

In nearby Sandy Bay, there are many interesting and expensive houses and apartments. This is one that I could not resist photographing because I love this style of building.

Penguin Church

When I saw Vanda’s post on the old church I thought I would see what I could do with a church photo. I have taken a lot of pictures of churches. They range from little chapels to grand looking cathedrals. I also have new software to try out so I thought I would have a bit of fun and do a post using a church too. This is what I did.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Columns and Vertical Lines

The wet weather has certainly ruined my weekend off as far as going out was concerned so I am stuck here at home. Of course I had seen the forecast but was wishing I could put the dogs in the car and take off for the day. It would have been great to get out of the house but we would not have been able to walk about much due to the rain. It has really set in here so decided to get on with editing some photos and some of my other hobbies. I am also using a trial photo editing program that I recently downloaded from the Microsoft Store. I’ve played around with most of these photos a little bit. One or two have been left alone as I like them as they are. Others I changed more for the fun of it rather than because they were too dark or whatever. I always try to find photos that I have not used in the past but this is sometimes hard as I have not been taking pictures for very long. Here are the shots I picked for Columns and Vertical Lines today.

Snapshot Sunday: The Old Church

This old church was the former Sacred Heart Catholic church at Ranelagh. When I took my original pictures of it I was making a series of photos of local churches, especially the wooden ones because many of them were falling into disuse. The day I took this one the weather was really threatening and I liked the effect very much.

Eventually a brand new church was built next to this one to replace it and the old church at Franklin. This little building sat empty for a while but one day I went by on the bus and it was gone. I believe that someone bought it and had it transported to another location but that is all I know.

I’ve had fun trying different effects with the photo for various blogging challenges and today I did the last one in Adobe Photo Elements 2018 just for fun.

Vertical Lines & Columns

As it is too wet to take photos today I’ve chosen a variety of pictures from all over the place starting with one of the many new office blocks going up in Brisbane. These pictures were taken between 2007 and the present with a variety of different cameras from my old point and shoot Kodak Easyshare, Fujifilm point and shoot I think, Nikon L120 and Pentax K10 for the Brisbane one. I’m doing a free trial of Adobe Photo Elements 2018 so edited my pictures with it today to help me decide if I want to shell out the money for it or stick with Photo Elements 9, Picasa and the Windows photo editing program which are the three progams I use currently.

New Zealand in 2016. I knew Napier would not disappoint, it has some wonderful old buildings.

In Auckland we liked the interior of the old railway station building.

I took this one in the Myer Centre in Adelaide in 2011. The upper floors were empty and deserted which I found very disconcerting in a building I remembered as a busy shopping centre.

Still in Adelaide one of the older style buildings in Rundle Mall which I photographed in 2011. I won’t guarantee it is still there now.
