Architecture, abstract, portrait & food

This seemed to fit the theme of architecture, abstract, portraiture and even food as a menu is visible. The photos are taken on an iPhone 4s with no editing, no special settings.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

    Do you remember when we used to have a camera to take pictures? I drove by the Polaroid Building this week. It is being torn down and not to put up a new one. Dick Tracy didn’t get it all right.


  2. I still do have a camera but only take it with me now when I know there are going to be photo opportunities. The phone is great for those occasions when that must record view happens when you least expect it. I have to say that blogging has given me a new knowledge about the phone’s camera. You will see a lot more experimenting in the future. It is sad when new technology makes something obsolete. Hopefully it will never happen to books (I mean the ones which are published and you can hold.)


  3. Welcome to the challenge–I’m actually taking a break this week due to the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday. The challenge will resume next Monday. I had notified past participants, and hope to see you on 02 December for the next challenge: Nature. I like the way that you combined different categories to show your experience. I am delighted to have you participate.
