April 12 of 12....

Well, here is my 12 of 12 for the month of April. If you don't know what 12 of 12 is about you kind find out more from the originator's blog. This is my second 12 of 12 and I really enjoy taking the photos from my day. I hope you enjoy this months photos. I'm not half as good as some of the other participants but I think with practice I'll get better. Anyway, I hope you enjoy my April 12 of 12...




Looking for my breakfast and there's not a lot in the fridge. I think I need to go to the store.



I went for a walk into the city and took a few shots. this tower sit atop the Australia Post Building.



Iron work around the bottom of a light at the front of a building



The iron work fence in front of the same building.



A bit of modern art outside a contemporary building or else they forgot to take down their Christmas decorations.



These two brass penguins are part of a bigger exhibit but I think they were the best photo out of the three that I took. We have a lot of penguin and sea lion sculptures around town. The reason behind all of them is because we serve as one of the ports for ships that sail to the Antarctic.



Just one of the very old taverns that are still serving alcoholic refreshments for over 100 years plus. Check out the date on the bottom right side of the sign.



A bit of graffiti for your viewing pleasure. Every city has it and our city is no exception.



The sign on the door of a local restaurant near our house. The restaurant is called the "Pigeon Hole", and is aptly named because it sits at the edge of a far bigger store which takes up more than 3/4 of the whole building that it shares, thus leaving the restaurant with a Pigeon Hole for it's space. I've never eaten at the place but I've heard it's really very good.



The pears were sitting on an old table at the "Pigeon Hole" restaurant. I took the picture through the window.



Happy Easter!



and good night...

What a nice set! Can't say I really know that much about Hobart, so any glimpse is fascinating to me :)

The penguins are my favourite, but the Pigeon Hole comes a close second!

Hey, I really liked your 12... :D I participated the second time, too, this month. I think you did really well.
Though I guess there are no "good 12 of 12'er" and bad ones. I guess it's always about what you like and what's improtant to you on the 12th. So I think yours is pretty good. Keep going
