Snapshot Sunday:Spirit of Tasmania

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.

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Small Subjects

Small is Relative

On Saturday I visited the Hobart Model Train Show and of course all the exhibits there are small but some are really small. The smallest layouts at the show were the ones entered in the “A4 Challenge”.

The A4 Challenge  – build a railway themed scene no larger than a sheet of A4 paper.

Tiny people and tiny accessories.

A tiny road gang

Freight loads for tiny trains.

I love photographing the miniature scenery nearly as much if not more than the trains.

A lovely little town in miniature.

There were also some miniature traction engines on display and while these are considerably bigger than the model railway layouts they are small compared to the real thing.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Needs to start with the letters Ap

The Alphabet According to Cee – Part One

This week’s challenge has been more than usually challenging as it has not stopped raining here since Tuesday, apricots are not in season and I ate the last apple in the house yesterday. Time to think outside the square.

First I jumped in my time machine and travelled back to April. I’m sure it is no surprise to anyone that my calendar features trains.

Back to April

Oops I went too far! These apples were from April last year.

Apples on my tree

Hastily returning to the present I searched for more items. Here is one from the freezer and another from my bookshelves.

A book about patchwork and applique.

Finally a quick  hop to the Op Shop or at least to my Op Shop photo file turned up some kitchen appliances. What  a good thing I am always taking pictures of the stock.

Wrecked Vintage Cars and Other Vehicles at Willow Court New Norfolk

Willow Court New Norfolk is home to an antique centre and many many wrecked vintage vehicles. Despite the threat of rain I was able to get some photos of most of them. Some had been sold to enthusiasts since my last visit but there were still lots of them there.
