This photo was taken on my iPhone 4S and is unedited apart from the conversion to black and white. For some reason the angles of the roof-line and the curves of the air-conditioning pipes appealed to me so whilst I waited for the room below to become vacant I happily snapped numerous views of the building’s roof.

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.

    I love this shot Irene, I’m a sucker for black and white 🙂


  2. The angles, lines and tones are well suited to the conversion. The building shows what can be achieved to create a building of everyday materials and make it interesting. Happy Phoneography Challenge.

    I also love the lines and angles; black and white absolutely shows this off fantastically well.
