Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Piles or Stacks

Stacks or Piles

For this week’s challenge I used my smart phone again and took a few photos of things at the Op Shop. As we have a lot of stuff and not a lot of room you can always find a stack of something.

Another place you will always find stacks of things is my garage. The stacks of boxes contain things that I have packed away to make the house less cluttered.

Here is an old one, apple boxes piled up near an orchard at Surges Bay I think it was.

And a recent one of a container ship, one of many we saw near Singapore.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Diagonal Lines

Diagonal Lines

I was getting a bit tired of using old photos for every challenge but I haven’t been anywhere to take photos lately.

Yesterday I went in to Hobart to meet up with Matt and Ally for lunch so I didn’t take the camera with me. I didn’t think there would be time for pictures if I was going to get home before dark.

I did take my phone though and although I don’t really enjoy using the smart phone for photos, I always seem to get my fingers in the way, I did snap off a few things I saw on the walk back to the bus stop. Unfortunately as my battery was getting flat it turned off wi-fi and the pictures did not import to Dropbox as they should have so I am late getting this post out.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Horizontal Lines

Horizontal Lines

Not the most exciting photo but here the sea, the land, the clouds and the sky make for a lot of horizontal lines. It reminds me of the old song that mum used to sing to us when we were little.

“I joined the navy to see the world; but what did I see? I saw the sea.”

The ocean and the sky.
Somewhere off Queensland in the Great Barrier Reef.

This next one was taken while we took a boat trip on the Singapore River.

Another favourite building of mine even though it is rather austere. Circular Quay Railway Station in Sydney.

Shelving

I really started thinking about shelves and stacks for this challenge.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Columns and Vertical Lines

Vertical Lines & Columns

As it is too wet to take photos today I’ve chosen a variety of pictures from all over the place starting with one of the many new office blocks going up in Brisbane. These pictures were taken between 2007 and the present with a variety of different cameras from my old point and shoot Kodak Easyshare, Fujifilm point and shoot I think, Nikon L120 and Pentax K10 for the Brisbane one. I’m doing a free trial of Adobe Photo Elements 2018 so edited my pictures with it today to help me decide if I want to shell out the money for it or stick with Photo Elements 9, Picasa and the Windows photo editing program which are the three progams I use currently.

New Zealand in 2016. I knew Napier would not disappoint, it has some wonderful old buildings.

In Auckland we liked the interior of the old railway station building.

Columns at the Railway Station in Auckland..

I took this one in the Myer Centre in Adelaide in 2011. The upper floors were empty and deserted which I found very disconcerting in a building I remembered as a busy shopping centre.

Still in Adelaide one of the older style buildings in Rundle Mall which I photographed in 2011. I won’t guarantee it is still there now.

On a trip to Canberra in 2007 we stopped off at Gundagai, NSW.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Arches, Domes & Half Circles

I love old ornate buildings from previous centuries. Today’s buildings mostly lack the grace and beauty of the past. There is nothing grand about dark glass and slabs of concrete thrown together to make a skyscraper. I love arches, domes, beautiful brickwork ,tiled flooring, stained glass and big impressive doorways. Before I end up getting into a rant about how ugly today’s architecture is here are my photos for this weeks Fun Foto Challenge.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Arches, Domes and Half Circles

Half Way Round

I do like the shape of arches and domes. I have taken quite a few of them over time but rather than be predictable I’ll try to find some photos I haven’t shared before. I found several photos of buildings around Hobart.

Arches

Domes

The old Post Office in Bellerive, now a museum.

The old post office at Bellerive has a small dome.

Well I have used this photo before but it is one of my favourite buildings. Flinders Street Station in Melbourne. I love the big dome and the big arched front entrance. I’ll be gutted if the latest “improvements” spoil it.

A few more domes, this time in Singapore.
