Centre of Our Universe: Day 4: Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge.

There’s the honeymoon.

Then, there’s the “before the baby arrives” holiday and the one before the next baby arrives.

While anticipating our daughter’s grand entry into the world, we flew down to Tasmania with Mister and stayed with Geoff’s cousin in Brdport, NE of Launceston. Geoff grew up on a 10 acre farm in Scotsdale. He is a dyed in the wool Tasmanian and has the scar tissue to prove it. His family has been living in Tasmania since the 1830s and includes free settlers as well as a convict who was accomodated at the notorious gaol: Port Arthur.

So, continuing the theme of posting photos of us behind the lens, here is Geoff photographing Mister at St Columbas Falls, Tasmania. From memory, I think Geoff was photographing the falls when Mister jumped in front of the lens, insisting on being the subject. Didn’t like being ignored! Reminds me of how dogs sit in front of the TV driving you crazy trying to get your attention.

Even though this blogshare is about sharing one photo a day, I couldn’t resist adding this photo of Mister, which conveys his dare-devil spirit. He isn’t quite so daring these days but he still has an eye for adventure. It was taken at Tomahawk Beach in NE Tasmania, which is 111 km NE of Launceston and looks out onto Bass Strait, which can be a gruelling patch of sea..

I am, having a ball trawling through old photos for this blogshare and am truly coming to realise how much work lies ahead sorting our my photos into some sort of retievable system. This is proving quite a challenge. In case you hadn’t noticed, “systems” is a foreign concept.

I was nominated by Geoff Le Pard fromTanGental for the Five Photos Five Stories blog Share: http://geofflepard.com/2015/06/10/five-photos-five-stories-day-two/


The rules of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge are:

1) Post a photo each day for five consecutive days.
2) Attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or a short paragraph. It’s entirely up to the individual.
3) Nominate another blogger to carry on the challenge. Your nominee is free to accept or decline the invitation. This is fun, not a command performance!

    Thanks Derrick. I went through my grandparents’ photos and went on a scan fest a few years ago but it doesn’t take long at the rate I take photos, for them to breed like rabbits.
    I am also the school photographer and Iour son is in his final year at Primary school this year and will be having a big send off and I’m intending to produce some kind of year book. It will be an exciting but huge project.
