Cee’s B&W Challenge: Walls Indoor or Outdoor.

Walls by Naomi

I’ve got a bung knee and leg from the week end’s house hunting activities so won’t be wandering far from home for a few days except to take Tigerwoods to get his shots. I’ve delved into the archives once again and found some photos I hope will be suitable for this challenge. I love looking at old buildings anytime and most of my photos feature very old buildings and places but I have added one dreadful new building in Adelaide that reminds me of one of those silver scouring pads you get for cleaning pots. You would all get what I mean if you saw this in colour and from further away. I haven’t done any indoor ones but there are plenty of outdoor pictures to make up for them.

Snapshot Sunday: Wrest Point & Tasman Bridge Hobart

As it is the Australia Day week end I decided to post a few pictures taken in Hobart our capital city. Vanda and I celebrated with a typical Aussie barbecue. We didn’t have anything fancy but we enjoyed our chops, sausages and salads. We forgot to take our bottle of Fronte with us though. Vanda thought I had picked it up and I thought she had it. We had to wait until we got home for a drink so we just had a cuppa instead. It was a warm day but we kept cool under the nice timber shelter sheds built around the barbecues. We didn’t have much trouble with the flies but the ants were there in abundance. We had to watch our plates carefully. It was a lovely way to relax and much better than having to go to work! Here are my photos.

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge : Corners

Corners are interesting. What will you see or find as you turn a corner? They pose mystery and intrigue. If it’s a corner you know well then maybe you are expecting to see the same old things. I spend a lot of my time alone and I guess I walk around in a world of my own. In fact a fortune teller once told me that I live inside my own head. How well did  she pick me? I tend to miss things sometimes. However I have often looked up and seen someone I know or I noticed that something had changed from the last time I had passed that way. Familiar things come and go so it’s good to get some photos as a record of our time there. This reminds me of the song “We may never pass this way again.” by Seals and Crofts 1973. I visited some unfamiliar corners in New Zealand cities and I was indeed afraid I would never pass this way again so I took the photos below to record my time there. If I do go back I could find it all changed. I love to visit new places and make discoveries. I still look for new and exciting things beyond the next corner. I’m hoping these photos will compliment the beautiful photos of Hobart that Vanda has taken which are very familiar to her as she has spent a great deal of time in the city where I have been stuck here in Oatlands largely due to work commitments. Trips to Hobart are not always possible so I have not taken many photos there. There’s one for the bucket list!

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Water

Water

It’s funny how some weeks you have hardly any photos for the subject and you are wondering what on earth you are going to do. Other weeks there are way too many to choose from. I was in the latter situation today so have a lot of pictures here in a slide show. There were heaps more I wanted to use but we would have been here all night if I had. I have done a few shipping ones in recent times so decided not to use a lot of those today. I love black and white and it’s fun to mess around with the software. It’s fun to experiment with the B&W and Sepia which I just love. Anyway here they are.

Cee’s B&W Challenge: Arches, Domes & Half Circles

I  had to go to the good old archives to get these photos. They were all taken on various trips away. When I saw Vanda’s photos this morning I thought Oh no! What am I going to put up since once again we had thought of using the same things. Luckily after spending some time going through my folders I found all of these that I hope meet the criteria for this weeks B&W photo challenge.
