Naomi’s Oddball

While I was seeing my friend Phillip off at Launceston Airport I noticed this Austin stuck in the middle of the newsagency and gift shop. It was being used for displaying their goods but I thought it was rather an odd thing to have in there for that purpose. The Austin is a British car and I did wonder why they did not use a Holden instead. Austins were everywhere in the 1960’s when I was growing up and they were a  popular car. This is a very good example of a Austin utility and this one was in good original shape. maybe this car had belonged to one of the business owners years ago.

The Big Hand from the Sky

The Big Hand from the Sky

This was an unintentional photo as the train controller decided to clean the rails just as I took my photo. “The Big Hand From The Sky” is  a kind of joke amongst model railway people as it is the entity that intervenes to rescue de-railed trains and blocked tunnels.

I don’t know how many passengers were in this carriage but someone needs to call the RSPCA.

Flogging a dead horse or two?

Jumping Castle

I found these photos from my cruise holiday when I was looking for a something for Bad Photo Monday. This is a kid’s jumping castle in the shape of a ship. Because I love ships I decided to get a photo of it. When I thought about it later I thought this looks like the Titanic. Everyone knows the story of this famous liner that hit an iceberg and sank in 1912. Why would you make a kid’s jumping castle that looks like the Titanic sinking? How odd is that

Geeveston Oddballs

I had a great walk around Geeveston last Tuesday. It was a cold but sunny winter’s day and after my expedition to the Rosehaven set I thought it was a good time to visit some other locations around town where I might get some good photos.

The Op Shop is in the grounds of the Geeveston Primary School and but usually I’m too busy to wander around the school ground and I don’t like taking my good camera to the shop in case it gets lost, broken or accidentally sold. I had been told there were some interesting features in the school’s garden though so I decided to go and have a look as it was holiday time and nobody was around. The first three photos were taken at the school.

The last photo was taken outside Makers on Church Street of a bicycle which has been yarn bombed.

Thomas the Tank Engine

While out walking one afternoon I came across this play equipment made to look like a “Thomas the Tank Engine” It’s derelict and has been left sitting in some yard. There doesn’t seem to be a house on the property, only a large shed and some junk. It’s obviously been there for some years so I wondered what they intended to do with it. Here is poor Clone Thomas.

Something Fishy

As Naomi mentioned the two of us had a very nice outing to Hobart on Saturday. We went out with the intention of finding some photos, mainly for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge but of course we were not going to miss any other opportunities that came our way.

I was very amused to see this bird who looked as if he/she was in the queue to buy some fresh fish. I am not sure but I think that it may be a juvenile Pacific Gull.

Why catch fish when you can buy them?
