I love Hobart and I'm lucky enough to live not far away. Every time I have a little bit of time to kill I head down to the the waterfront to take some snaps. There are always some new little gems to capture. Often I capture the same subjects but in different light or with different background. Here are some for your perusal. Any comments are appreciated :smile:

(No 2 & 4 were taken with my old Lumix TZ10 and the rest with EM-5 with either 12-50 or 40-150)

Thanks guys! Appreciate the positive feedback:smile:

Bob, thanks, that's actually my favourite too. I have several variation of it. That particular buoy almost always have a contemplating cormorant onboard.

I am intrigued by what appears to be a loop hook or cleat in your series. Is that a special purpose device or is that common in that area. If it is used for mooring, I assume that the boats are actually secured onboard, possibly with the use od a capstan. Can you confirm? Thank you.

I'm not sure what they're called in English sorry.. but it's sort of a cleat for mooring. Most boats seem to just use a rope with a loop as seen in #9. They are found all around the harbour (Constitution Dock, Franklins Wharf etc) but I have never seen exactly this type anywhere else.

You are making me homesick!! Thanks for the series, you have captured some lovely aspects of the docks. I'll be home at Christmas with my family and will catch the Taste of Tasmania and the yachts arriving from the Sydney to Hobart race, can't wait!!

My old stomping ground is in the background of pic 2, the Tasmanian School of Fine Art, a great location to spend 3 years at school.

Cheers

Thanks for the response. I assume that, if such a device is used with a standing loop, it would require taking the slack out of the line for a solid mooring. If, on the other hand, one of these hooks was used at the bow, a horn cleat could be used at the stern to bring the craft up smartly against the fenders.

I am so overdue to visit Tasmania. I think my 19yo was a toddler last time I went.

Then again, I was reminded on the weekend how overdue I am to visit NZ - last visited 22 years ago!

But first I need to keep planning my long-awaited visit to Japan.

Too many places to go.

Here they are, finally. Just a collection of random photos from around the waterfront.

Time for an update here. I have tons of new images so I'll have a few big posts. Can't get enough of this place :redface:

First up are some pics taken from Prince's Wharf where the Taste of Tasmania Food Festival was still going on in full swing. We were there fairly early on the 31 Dec before the daily crowd descended. It was a gorgeous day and we even got table for ourselves.
