Today’s picture is especially for my friends Gillian and Bruce who will be sailing down to Hobart on Radiance of the Seas next week.
It has not stopped raining all day. Our third wet one. Welcome to summer in Tasmania.
Roll Up Roll Up! I took this photo of a circus tent while we were in New Zealand early in 2016. It was very early and hardly anyone about at the time. I thought a circus tent with zero activity going on was interesting photographic material. The photo came out really dark and I was not at all happy with it. I put it to one side and forgot about it until yesterday. I have played around with it and come up with this. I was rather pleased with the results.
I decided to post some photos I took in the hospital gardens where I work of the roses and a few other plants. The gardens there are always lovely but the roses this year were simply stunning. I can’t say I love going to work very much but I do like the gardens and it’s always nice to take a walk around them even when I am not on duty. Here are my photos for Snapshot Sunday. It was very windy but most of these came out ok without being blurry.
The Ashes are on again and the First Test is being played at “The Gabba” in Brisbane this week. I think this beardless boy is England wicket keeper Johnny Bairstow. This photo was taken four years ago when England were playing a tour match against Australia A. Hobart does not rate an Ashes Test Match which is a shame because I’d love to see one but hate going to the mainland in summer.
I was going to use this for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge as either Polly or lazy but I changed my mind. However, it is too nice a photo of Polly not to share.
