When Vanda told me about this one my initial reaction was ” I can’t do that!” I didn’t think I would be able to get any photos of siblings at all. I just don’t mix around enough with other people and there was nothing in my archive but I finally found something in an old box of photos while looking for something else. This is a photo I took of my mother and her three sisters. Two of them were visiting and staying with us and the other drove up from another suburb. Pictured left to right are Aunty Audrey, Aunty Tiny, Aunty Daphne and Mum (Carol). They are all long gone but I’m sure they would not mind me using their picture for this challenge. I thought it was a rather nice one of them and they had asked me to take it for them. Unfortunately none of us thought about the awful background in the photo! This photo was taken around 1986 or 87 from memory as Mum and I had not yet moved to Semaphore.
Two grand old ladies, MV Cartela built in 1912 and Preana built in 1896. Cartela is currently undergoing restoration to be returned to steam power and Preana is restored and available for charter trips.
The West Coast Wilderness Railway runs between Queenstown and Strahan. Its three locomotives are the original ones used by the Mt Lyell Railway Company to service the mines. All were built inbetween 1896-98
Although I don’t live on a farm I do live in the country so there are opportunities to photograph livestock either at country shows, neighbouring properties or just when I’m out and about. These are all old ones from my archives.
How cute are these two? 2010
Alpacas, a few people breed them around here.
Molly the horse used to live in a paddock at the bottom of my garden until the land was sold and they built houses there. I preferred Molly as a neighbour.
How could I resist joining in this challenge? The only local public transport we have around here is the bus but as a non driver I’ve used plenty of public transport while living in Adelaide and of course public transport is usually the easiest way to get around when you are visiting a large city.Here are some ways of getting around in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Hobart.
I really love boats and ships especially cruise liners. Here are a few of my photos of them. They are taken in Hobart, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and New Zealand. Explorer of the Seas will always remain close to my heart because of our wonderful holiday in 2016 so she has the proud honour of being my featured photo for this post.
