I went for another long walk around Lake Dulverton and these are a few photos taken along the way. Stayed tuned for the rest of my photos of my walk to Hawthorn Bay and back.
While I was in Melbourne recently I visited the Puffing Billy Railway with friends. I will be writing a whole post about this later but in the meantime here are a few railway “Which Ways”.
Here are a few more photos from my walk around the Hobart waterfront last week. I went to Elizabeth St Pier first to photograph the cruise ship then walked around to the other side of the pier, the old shed has been converted to a hotel.
This next one is more of a Which Way Not To Go as it is a private pontoon. I have never seen a No Drone Zone sign before. Definitely a sign of the times.
Just in case you did not notice the big black shed that is the new Brooke St Pier.
I was intrigued that while we have a brand spanking new ferry wharf which is getting practically no traffic the company that does the cheaper cruises has to operate out of this shipping container. I fail to see the logic.
It’s been a long time since I’ve participated in the Which Way Challenge mainly because I rarely seem to go anywhere these days. My time is spent between the Op Shop and home and if I go to Hobart at all it is usually for shopping and I don’t take my camera. Today was a lovely autumn day so I forced myself out of the house with no plan in mind but to take pictures.
I had a vague plan to walk up to Battery Point but when I arrived in Hobart there was a cruise ship in so of course I had to stop and take pictures before continuing along the waterfront to Salamanca Place. Last time I was in Hobart it was a sunny Saturday and the Wooden Boat Festival and a large cruise ship being in port meant the waterfront was very busy and crowded. Today it was quite the opposite. Quite a few people were out and about but if felt very relaxed. After lunch I did walk up Kelly’s Steps to visit Arthur Circus in Battery Point but as I wanted to get the 2pm bus home I did not linger although I did stop to get one more photo of the cruise ship, Holland America’s Noordam.
I have taken photographs around Salamanca Place before but I tried to look for some different views today and try different settings on the camera. Not all were successful but I did get some photos for future challenges. This is one of my favourite parts of Hobart. The buildings are some of the oldest in the state dating from the early Victorian era. I was quite proud of myself for making it up Kelly’s Steps.
I must try to do a few more photography outings as I really miss them.
I’m submitting these for my friend Allyson as I think they are great Which Ways from our road trip. Allyson does not have a blog but I think I am going to try to persuade her to start one up to share her photos.
Saturday morning I found myself in Hobart at 7:30 am with an hour to wait for a bus to the cricket. I decided to spend some of it taking photographs for the Which Way Challenge. My bus was leaving from Macquarie Street so my pictures are from nearby Franklin Square and Davey Street.
The short street leading to the waterfront in the next photo is Brooke Street. To reach it from Davey Street you have to use a steep flight of stairs. On the right, where the cars are parked but not visible in the photo is the hotel where I worked for several years when I first came to Tasmania. I rarely used the stairs unless I was going to Elizabeth Street to go the shops. Hobart is quite a hilly city and takes your breath away in more ways than one.
It has been some time since I have participated in Cee’s Which Way Challenge. It has been quite frustrating because it is one of my favourite photo challenges.This past winter I’ve so rarely been able to be out and about with the camera that I’ve had little opportunity to take new photos. These which ways were taken on my recent visit to Adelaide. I grew up in this city although it has been nearly fifteen years since I moved away from there. As I arrived in Adelaide the the flight path was over the city and I could see the Railway Station, Festival Centre and the surrounding parklands. I used to spend a lot of time around there so I thought it was about time that I visited again. There have been a lot of changes, the main one being this bridge across the River Torrens . The new walkway allows you to walk out of the railway station, convention centre or the adjacent Hyatt Hotel and across the bridge to Adelaide Oval to attend sporting events or concerts at Adelaide Oval or Memorial Drive Tennis Centre. I quite like this idea now that I have seen it.
When I lived in Adelaide I often used to take the path beside the river to walk from the station to my job in North Adelaide. I enjoyed it in the early morning when there would often be rowing crews practicing on the river. The path goes past Adelaide University where at that time I knew my sister would be working at her early morning cleaning job in one of the buildings and then past the zoo where I would hear the lions roaring as I went past. If I walked back that way after work I would see the “Popeye” boats taking people to and from the zoo and families out in the colourful paddle boats you can see in the foreground of thephoto of the river.
