A Photo A Week Challenge: Water

Water, Water Everywhere

When you live on an island it is not terribly hard to find water to photograph. Here are some waterside scenes in Tasmania.

Cee’s Week 5 Photo

I nearly forgot to post my entry this week even though I knew that I could find subjects for it without too much trouble.

Here are two friends of mine Michelle and Juarne singing Christmas Carols after the Geeveston Christmas Parade last year.¬† Michelle’s Roadhouse Kitchen is featured in the next¬† few photos.

We were entertained with Christmas Carols. Music, guitar

Snapshot Sunday: Cartela

I was wondering what to do for today’s photo when I read an article about the restoration of the MV Cartela. She is about to go into a specially made dry dock for further restoration before being reunited with her original steam engine.

I looked amongst my photos and discovered one I had forgotten about from 2009 when she was still based in Hobart. This was taken during the Wooden Boat Festival of that year. The interior photo two years later when we were fortunate enough to cruise on the Derwent with her.

Then she came down to Franklin via Port Huon in 2014. That is one of my favourite photos.

Recently while on our “Yukon” trip I was able to photograph Cartela from the other side.

I hope that I’ll be able to photograph her fully restored one day and enjoy a trip from Hobart to New Norfolk.

Snapshot Sunday: The Old Church

This old church was the former Sacred Heart Catholic church at Ranelagh. When I took my original pictures of it I was making a series of photos of local churches, especially the wooden ones because many of them were falling into disuse. The day I took this one the weather was really threatening and I liked the effect very much.

Eventually a brand new church was built next to this one to replace it and the old church at Franklin. This little building sat empty for a while but one day I went by on the bus and it was gone. I believe that someone bought it and had it transported to another location but that is all I know.

I’ve had fun trying different effects with the photo for various blogging challenges and today I did the last one in Adobe Photo Elements 2018 just for fun.

 

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Barns or Any Dilapidated Buildings

Dilapidated or Picturesque?

As an area that once had many more farms and orchards than it does now the Huon Valley has its share of abandoned sheds in various states of disrepair. As photo subjects I rather like them.

Not the worst I’ve seen but this old shed could at least use a new roof.
There are plenty of old timber sheds around the Huon Valley. This one definitely has a lean.
Dilapidated shed, Channel Highway near Cygnet. Spotted from the car while out for a drive. Not sure what is keeping it up.

And finally my own dear departed rustic shed, demolished a couple of years ago to make way for the pergola.

Snapshot Sunday: Cloudy Day on the Huon River

A cloudy day on the Huon River at Franklin.

Today, for my birthday treat we sailed on Yukon, a restored wooden fishing vessel. Originally from Denmark it is now based in Franklin. The weather was kind to us and although rain was threatened it stayed dry until after our trip.
