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.
I haven’t been online much due to Internet problems and not being able to use my new computer because of the virus protection software blocking my Internet access. What a nightmare that was. I couldn’t use either of my computers hardly at all over the last couple of weeks hence the lack of posts. I’ve been busy hunting down my favourite apps and my music library. I just have to have my music. Everything just comes to a complete stand still without it in this house. Well tonight I’m really just getting back into things again. I found I wasn’t too late for the last B&W challenge so I got out two pictures at random that have nothing at all to do with each other and played about with them a bit. Now they look quite old and like they came out of an old trunk that had been hidden away in an attic for decades. I had fun doing this and hope to do some more very soon.
The first photo is of my old Stenmar piano which was made in New York during the Edwardian era so I’m told. It’s around 100 years old. I have never been able to find out anything about this piano apart from what is engraved inside the case. It remains a bit of a mystery as nobody seems to know anything about R Stenmar of New York.
The second photo is taken from the Bridgewater Bridge at Bridgewater. This is a northern suburb of Hobart and I was there to take photos of the bridge. While I was there I took a photo of the view from it. I rather liked the picture so decided to use it for this challenge.
Here are my photos for this challenge. I haven’t been very far a field because of work and then getting a really nasty virus. I have been grounded for nearly two weeks. These are mostly taken in Oatland. Many of the buildings here in Oatlands are constructed of sandstone. There are many dry stone walls and one or two red brick buildings on the High Street. I stuck with those for these photos.
I decided to use things I saw at The Tasmanian Transport Museum for this challenge. Nearly everything there was numbered either because it had numbers on it anyway or because it was an exibit. Here they are.
