My theme for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge today is a historical one. Many of the older settlements in Tasmania were built with convict labour using bricks which were also made by the convicts. Naomi’s home town of Oatlands is one of those along with Ross, Richmond and Campbelltown to name some of the more well-known ones. Here are a few old photos re-edited.
For this challenge, I thought it would be interesting to use numbers that relate to sport. I’ll start with cricket. Here are two former Australian cricketers wearing their One Day International uniforms. I used an orange filter for 33 and a red one for 23 just to see the differences. Below is a typical cricket scoreboard.
I have a huge archive of photos of racing yachts, here are a couple that I took last year.
Most of my motor racing photos are still either slides or prints waiting to be transferred to the computer but here are a couple. Perhaps the most famous number in Australian motorsport history, Peter Brock’s 05 and his teammate that year Wayne Gardener, both taken at the Adelaide Grand Prix circuit. The last one is a Formula 1 car, a Brabham, from the late 1980s or early 90s. It has road tyres on as it had been taking part in a demonstration run before being displayed at a suburban shopping centre.
I went for a walk hoping to find some new photos but what do you know. All the cows must have gone to find greener pastures because I didn’t spot one in the usual places near my house. I did find a few interesting things to photograph just the same.
Finally, here’s one I prepared earlier.
Here are a couple of candid photos of Cindy and Polly relaxing in the living room.
Nearly all my photos of people are candid photos because I am too shy to ask people to pose. Here are a few from the archives.
This week I have a few photos I took on my smartphone. I don’t really like using it for photography as it is quite slow to respond but it does take a reasonable photo and I can take it with me when it wouldn’t be convenient to take my real camera, like when I’m going grocery shopping or for that random moment when I’m waiting for someone who is giving me a ride.
Walking into Geeveston to buy groceries I passed by these two old cars.
Waiting in the car for a friend I amused myself taking a picture or two.
Wheels on the Water
Here is a couple from my visit to the Wooden Boat Festival.
