Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Barns or Any Dilapidated Buildings

Dilapidated

Well I finished work early today (11am) so I fired up Wazza , hitched up Toby and Teddy and off I went armed with my trusty GE point and shoot to take some photos. I don’t usually go out just to take pictures but I often take my camera in my bag just in case I see something interesting. We drove south as far as Pontville first of all and then all the way back to Tunbridge. All of these photos are in towns or on the Midland Highway along this route. Of course I took some photos that had nothing to do with this challenge but here’s what I came up with for this one.

Snapshot Sunday: Adverts

While out and about last week end I got some photos of some more old and new advertising and a nice photo of a favourite old pub in the Glenorchy area. The pub is “The Elwick Hotel” It has a lovely lounge area and the staff are very nice. One thing I like about this pub is the beautiful murals on the outside of the building. I took one photo of the best one as I walked by. The other photos are of very old and very new advertising on buildings. The bright yellow is rather garish but I do love the old fireworks,crackers sign on the Chinese restaurant. You can see how advertising has changed over the years by these photos.

Cee’s B&W Photo Challenge: Through a Window

Through a Window

It has been so wet here in Tassie today and yesterday. Hobart was badly flooded and the Brooker Highway was apparently closed or so I heard. I had wanted to go to the city but no way in this weather. One could only imagine how dangerous the Midland Highway would be so instead I rugged up in a nice warm jumper and sorted through photos for this latest challenge. I have gone with old and new photos for this one. I have even been a bit creative and had a joke with one picture. Here they are.

Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge: New Friends at The Northgate Shopping Centre

Oddball Challenge

I went shopping at The Northgate Shopping Centre and met people I was not expecting to meet. They explained they were collecting for charity so I gave them some money and asked if I could take their photos. I must say Mr Vader was very keen for a photo to be taken and jumped straight into his best pose. Batman was ready for a chat and promised to keep the others in line despite the fact they were not from Gotham City.
