From my kitchen window

I am becoming quite interested in photography and to dip my feet in the water I have joined in Deb’s Scavenger Hunt.  This week the subject is “From my kitchen window”.  I rather like this view as I look up to Teneriffe Hill (which is a good job as it’s the only view from my kitchen window!).

I will probably start a separate blog for photographs that have no relation to my allotment. But just for this week – here is my entry. Taken with my iPhone.

    Teneriffe by name…Teneriffe by nature Jean! It’s so far out of our poor cold sphere here in Tasmania that it may as well be the real Teneriffe lol 😉 Nice photo by the way, hope you win 🙂

      Hi Fran. Thank you for your encouragement. It’s not a competition but just for fun. I thought it would be one way of getting to know other blogging photographers. I will start a separate blog for this. And then I’ll have to learn how to put a link to it from my “allotment” blog.

        It’s always wonderful to see photos from Queensland and to know that they are actually taken from the same country! I am so envious of your ability to grow exponentially! The more I learn about permaculture the more envious of tropics dwellers I get 🙂

    Great picture – what a view! I love the houses – so different from what you’d find over here. Beautiful country!

      The white house across the road is what they call a “Queenslander”. Some of the older Queenslander’s around Brisbane are quite beautiful. They are wooden houses built on stumps to let the cool air through under the house. What most people do is then enclose the area with palings for a storage or rumpus area, but the air can still circulate. On really hot days the best place to sit is under the house catching the cool breezes.

    I love the view Jean and those Queenslanders are really beautiful. I could see myself standing at the sink washing up and watching the ‘going’s on’ of the street!

      Hi Lynn, thanks for visiting. I’m on the top floor of my unit block so I have to crane my neck a little to have a ‘sticky beak’ at the road outside but I love to look up the hill, and at the pretty white house on the corner. I have seen them really improve that house and now they have it beautifully renovated.

    Those Queenslanders are just gorgeous. You don’t see anything like them here in Tassy.

      They are gorgeous Deb. I think you need a deep pocket to keep them maintained to a high standard, all that wood. But they knew what they were doing in those days in building houses that could cope with the heat and humidity, and with lovely wrap around verandah’s.

    Hello Jean, love your view I guessed it was Brisbane at first glance I adore that style of home. I’m part of Deb’s photo challenge too and zero experience at taking really good pics, but having fun trying. Your iPhone takes a great photo. Cheers

      Thank you for your kind words Chris. I am enjoying taking part in Deb’s photo challenge. At the moment I just have the iPhone so I’ll see how far I get with that. It seems pretty good really and the main benefit is that I always have it on me and I think that’s what you need with a camera. Mind you, I do dream of owning one of those super-duper cameras with the big lens.

    Wow Jean, It looks lovely where you live, so clean and tidy. The photo is good too, though I don’t know much about photography, I do know a good picture when i see one.
