Snapshot Sunday: Where No Man Has Gone Before

Two of Naomi’s Star Trek Action Figures

Well, this weekend the weather has been too wet and miserable for outdoor photography so instead, I’d like to share a photo of two of Naomi’s Star Trek action figures.

Naomi recently started adding to her small collection of action figures. She brought her Enterprise Bridge up to my house recently so I could see it. I took this photograph that day.

If you would like to see more of these and other action figures check out Naomi’s posts on our doll blog. You can find a link below.

Snapshot Sunday: Poultry in Motion

A chicken being judged at the Huon Show.

This was taken in the poultry hall at the Huon Show. I assume that this man is a judge and is examining the bird but when I saw him holding it I just had seconds to take the picture so I didn’t inquire.

There will be more pictures from the Huon Show in another post very soon.

Snapshot Sunday: Cindy

I was busy taking photos for Cee’s challenges and wanted to include one of Cindy’s water bowl. She decided that she would come and sit on her bed while I was doing it so I took a picture. I decided it wasn’t suitable for the challenge but it was too nice to waste.

Bad Photo Monday: Where’s The Cheese?

Cindy is not angry here.

Here I was trying to take a photo of Cindy with her tongue showing for Cee’s Black & White Challenge but every time she did I was too slow. She looks quite mean in this one but she was in a perfectly happy mood.

Snapshot Sunday: Fire Engines

On Friday I had to go to Hobart to pick up a parcel from a shop just outside the CBD. As I walked back down Campbell Street I noticed that there was some activity around the open roller doors at the fire station. When I saw vintage fire engines, of course, I had to grab my phone and take a few photos.
We do have more modern fire engines for actual firefighting though 🙂

Snapshot Sunday: King of the Mountain

Today the day of the Bathurst 1000 motor race an iconic race for Australian motor sport fans.

David and I used to watch the race on TV every year. He loved it, probably as much for the history of it as the actual racing. As time went on I didn’t watch the whole race as it goes on for several hours but would just stop every now and then to get an update.

Since he’s been gone I’ve put the TV on in the morning for the start and watched a bit. This year for the first time I didn’t do that. I haven’t been watching the series all year and many of the drivers are unfamiliar to me. It feels a little weird as it’s been such a long-standing tradition but in truth I don’t feel the same about it any more.

My photos today are two old ones, not taken at Bathurst but at the Adelaide Formula 1 Grand Prix where the V8 Supercars were a major support event. Pictured is Peter Brock who won Bathurst 9 times;  more than any other driver.
