December wanderings

December wanderings

Hi welcome to my new blog, I am hoping to use this as a forum to show new work and post my activities and thoughts.

I will start with my recent wanderings in Tasmania. We decided to have a December break to aviod the pre-Christmas madness and recharge before the busy wedding season coming up. So early December we headed to Hobart.
Hobart is an interesting town, it is a good mix of new and old buildings and has been able to retain most of the heritage of the area within a growing city. I like to walk around cities as you see more than you would driving through them, so I spent a bit of time blindly walking the streets.

One of the areas of Hobart that I enjoyed was Battery Point where many of the older buildings are and still retain their magic.
The house above sat alone on an intersection and still retains a feel of grandness of many of the houses in the area. The buildings in this area date from the early to mid-1800’s.

During our first week there we also visited the historic town of Richmond. I photographed this car outside the Congregational Church (1873) what drew me to this was a new car trying to look old outside a church that is old.
During a three day camping trip to Fortescue bay we popped down to Port Arthur to see the historic prison. It was a very picturesque place to have a prison.

The image above was one of the images that I took there. It was very hard to get an image in a

popular tourist site and have no people in it. It just shows that if you persevere you can get it right.

    Hello Chris!
    Are you the same Chris Hill who published the excellent Landscapes of Connaught? I don't buy many books, but I sure bought that one!
