Ok so when my batteries went flat I decided to change them over right away even though I was not intending to take any more pictures. We went to a pub for tea so while I was waiting for Phillip to return from ordering our meals I got my my spare batteries out and popped them into the camera. I was about to put it away when as predicted I pressed the button and took a lovely picture of the table and my thumb!’
Someone always does this.
It always happens when I go to the model train show. I get into position, frame my photo and wait for the right moment. Just as I press the shutter someone decides to point something out to their child. I avoided half a dozen of these today but not this one.
another annoying hand.
I went to visit a World War One display made by an acquaintance of ours , historian Peter Fielding but in this photo the hand of the controller snuck in to the picture at the last second. I wanted to take a photo of Peter in his uniform but unfortunately this photo was spoiled by the guy in the background picking his nose.

This last photo was one where I wanted to show the controller working on the model trains. It was only when I started to edit that I realised that he had a small man under his arm. Or at least that is how it looks.
Working on the railroad
Today we were on the road to Devonport. I got this nice photo of the ferry that travels between Devonport and Melbourne on the mainland.
Here it is berthed at Devonport awaiting departure time.

Coco is one of the cats belonging to the owners of the antique centre at Willow Court in New Norfolk. She has her own chair and loves having a fuss made of her. I was able to get a nice photo of her relaxing on her favourite chair which is not for sale of course.
This bad photo is one of those ones that I kept because of the subject matter even though as a photo it is not very good. It was taken at a Hurricanes match that I went to with my friends Allyson and Matt a couple of years ago. Ally asked me to take a photo of her with Ricky Ponting but unfortunately where they were standing the floodlights really messed up the picture.
I am posting my bad photo for Monday early in case I run out of time tomorrow. Having a visitor and going out more often has enabled me to take more photos in different places but I have not had as much time for posting anything. Today I saw a beautiful vintage car from the 1950’s. I didn’t get a good look at it because I was unaware that it was coming around the corner until Phillip called me when he suddenly spotted it. I was still taking photos of St Lukes. I whirled around and got the camera ready. I managed to frame the car very nicely but my camera has slow shutter speed so I only got half a car. The results were a huge disappointment. I went back to the main street hoping to spot the car parked somewhere but never saw it again.
