Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Eyes

The Eyes Have It

Doll whose eyes have turned pink!

This is my Baby Born doll, like a lot of dolls from the 1990s that have acrylic eyes they have discoloured over time.  It’s a fault in this type of eye. Still on the subject of eyes. Here is a teddy who needed a new one.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Bridges

Bridges in Singapore

As an island state with a river running through it, Singapore has a lot of bridges, some old, some new and some inside shopping malls.

I think this one might be the Cavenagh Bridge

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Signs

Signs of the Times

My photos this week were taken with my phone while I was out and about in  Geeveston. As I’ve explained before I don’t like to take my camera with me to the Op Shop. I’m afraid that it will end up buried under a pile of stuff never to be seen again. I don’t enjoy using the phone that much but it does take a reasonable photo.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Walks, Trails, Sidewalks

Siberian Sidewalks

As I used my most recent street photos for Sonofabeach96’s Which Way Challenge I’m delving into the far past for these old ones. They were taken in 1990 on our overseas trip. I have many more but a lot of that trip was photographed on slide film and I haven’t scanned very many. One day I must finish doing that.

The first one is more of a trail. Newly married couples would come to this spot to tie a ribbon to one of the trees for good luck. We saw it on a guided tour. They probably take selfies there now if it’s still done.

We only had a day and a half in Irkutsk but it was fine sunny winter weather.  These were some of my favourite photos from the trip because I liked the architecture and the light was just right that day. I probably took these photos with my Pentax MG or possibly one of our Zenit’s.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge/ Sonofabeach96’s Which Way Challenge: Roads

I used to love doing the Which Way Challenge but lately, I don’t get out with my camera much so it’s been hard to find new which ways. This week is no exception. These which ways were taken within 300 metres of my house.

Speed Limit

There was an event at the football ground not far from my house. This stretch of the Huon Highway is normally a 100kph zone so these signs were placed near my driveway.

Which Way?
More speed restrictions
Scott’s Road
Off road parking

Traffic control
The dirt road to the clubhouse.
Walking home.

As I walked home later I passed this old abandoned dirt road. When we first moved here in 2002 you could follow this road past some properties and exit on to Scott’s Road but after some time a small bridge over the Kermandie River fell into disrepair and neither the property owner nor the council wanted to fix it so the Huon Highway end of the road was closed. Now you can hardly tell it was ever a road.
